That is a great press! I want one too. How long did it take to reload a box?

I took my time, loading one shell at a time so I could really understand what was happening. A few mishaps along the way, but now the press is absolutely smokin'! They say it will load 300-400 shells an hour.

Here's the layout, guys. Hulls to the left and wads to the right. Currently loading low recoil target rounds with Winchester AA Light and once-fired Remington STS hulls.

Truth be told, it's exhausting...I have to load a hull and a wad for each cycle. My index fingers are killing me! :P
