Herter's O Press
« on: August 08, 2009, 07:44:12 pm »
I have to brag somewhere.  I have intended to buy another single stage press to accommodate the increased reloading I and my two teen sons are doing (because we are shooting more  ;D) and happened upon an old Herter's O Press in excellent shape in a junk shop last week.  The owner offered to sell it to me for $35 along with two die sets (RCBS .270 and Pacific .30-06 in like new condition for $20).  Bought it, ordered a special adapter from Midway that allows use of RCBS shell holders on the press, mounted it on my bench today.  It is so massive that full length sizing of .30-06 casings is almost effortless.  This press is built so strong it would probably survive a nuclear blast. :cool

    EXCELLENT find.  Enjoy it.   Wonder what it loaded in its previous life?
    This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries
