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.

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!:lol:

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

You guys have expensive taste! I like all of the suggestions, now I just gotta find someone to buy me one of each!

Thanks again!

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.
