    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    I have the older "T-Mag" version of this press, which was my first press. Lyman quality is excellent and strongly built.

    And the lifetime warranty is excellent.

    I picked up a Redding T-7 Turret Press a few years ago when it was on sale for $230, or I would be all over this one. This is a great price for a top quality turret press.

    That is quite the price. But my little brain works hard keeping track of 5 functions, I'm not sure about 8!

    You could put 3 of your favorite calibers up, set them and leave them. That way they are ready to go when you are with no setup.

    Just out of curiosity, what ARE each of the 8 stations of the press designed for? The largest die set I've seen is only 4 stations.
    PT1911 - 45ACP, Pietta 1873 SAA - 45LC, PT709SS slim, Heritage RR 6.5" 22LR/Mag dual cylinders
    1939 Tula 91/30 Nugget, Evil Copper and Black Rifle, Savage B-Mag in 17WSM
    Mossberg 535 12ga

    Keep two caliber ready or just put your fave caliber set up in the press and leave the other stations for other dies as needed.

    I have the old 6 station T press bought new in the 70s. I have never needed any warranty. The thing is built to survive nuclear attack. I use it for loading rifles, use my much newer Lee for pistol calibers. I like just installing another turret to change calibers. Can't do that with the Lyman.

    You must be talking about an old Lyman, with this 8 station turret press you can change out turrets easily. Same with my Redding.

    Likely the old lyman!
    that was the first turret press that I owned, the thing was built like a tank and weighed about the same, maybe a tad more depending on whether an American or German tank.
    at the time I was even reforming brass for the 30 and 35 Herritt cartridge and had a single station rcbs for that and rifle calibers at the time.
    I soon found out the old lyman turret would easily handle resizing/reforming the full length 30-30 rifle case down to lil bitty short 30 herritt cases with no problem at all.
    if memory serves that old lyman had a huge nut on top that help the turret in place?
