    Default Press recommendation for .375H&H

    I've been reloading .375H&H on an old pacific press that works but it sure is hard work, hand ends up bruised every time. Any recommendations on a press with better leverage for the bigger cases?

    Thanks!

    What about looking for one on the 'older' RCBS Rock Chucker presses? I have two of them and they have done every well. The largest cailber that I have loaded on mine has been the 459 WM, so I am not sure what the differnece would be, compared to your 375 H&H.

    Any relatively modern single stage should serve you well. Always hard to go wrong with a plain jane Rockchucker. I'm loving my newer Redding T-7 though; highly recommended.

    I used an RCBS Partner for many years reloading .375 H&H, reforming .460 W to .500 A-Sq and a bunch of others. It is a pain with the long cases so I finally found a mint RCBS Rockchucker. One of the older heavy cast iron jobs. It is amazing. So much easier.

    Look hard at the Forster Coax press.
    It's amazing.

    Have you looked at the Lyman T-Mag? It is a turret press. I have had it for years. I will never buy a single stage press again. I enen use one for my comercial ammo business for small runs or obscure rounds. I have loaded 340 Wby, RUMs, 460 Wby on it and never have a problem. Allows you to leave your seater dies in the tool head as well.

    Over 40 years of loading 375 and other bigguns on a Rockchucker. Never an issue, and it hasn't worn out yet!

    Another vote for the co-ax, my rockchucker collects dust after I got the co-ax.

    I use a Lee aniversary set. 1000 rounds of 375 later it is like new. Best 100 bucks you will spend.

    I like the co-ax not because it's expensive, I like it because IMHO it's the finest single stage press you can buy. I had a Lyman t-mag with 5 turrets, but sold it after getting the co-ax. With the co-ax you can slide dies in and out just as fast as twisting a turret, but you don't have to buy extra turrets or spend the time changing them out. Also the co-ax shell holder jaws are faster than a conventional shell holder and the shell and die "floats" so that the case self aligns in the die.

    Still using my original Rockchucker. 9mm Makarov all the way to 375 H&H. Works good.
