Here is my Christmas present! Came today!
The one and only - Ultramag from Redding... Grrrrrr...! :)
(I know, Christmas presents traditionally must be a surprise but you see... Not in our family, we have a tradition to buy presents upfront after discussing with every member of our family what exactly wanted, so no surprise but pleasant waiting of desirable present...) ;)

Redding really makes top notch stuff!

That is really nice, Merry Christmas to you... Maybe IF I'm good I'll get something besides a lump of coal this year...

First I was looking for just a separate press for universal deprimer... ))) but fall in love with this heavy metal stuff & could not resist a temptation... So here it is & I believe it is the best of the best. I'll use it for full case sizing. The size & weight of this machine is just ENORMOUS! It will make a great tandem with my T-7 Redding!

Nice! I agree that Redding makes the best gear out there. Forster is suppose to be better but I only have a bullet puller to show for now. And they don't have the huge selection that redding does

Also I've got RCBS forming die to make 8mm Mauser from .30-06 Rem & this press will help a lot as far as leverage is concern... Didn't install it yet, had not time because I spent most of my day at work...
This press is WAY more capable than even mighty T-7... Design itself gives no chances for any kind of play, gap or slackness... A Leverage is even better then in T-7 Redding!
Guys, if any of you do reload Magnum cartridges, this press is must have. :thumbup:

Here is a short video in which I use my both presses to reform .30-06 Springfield brass to 8mm Mauser...
