    which one do you guys prefer, anyone that has every used both? Anyone have concentricity issues with either? Don't care about depriming/priming but do want quality. Is the redding worth the extra buck? biggest difference is price on spare turrets, which I'd like to be able to set up my dies and leave them so I'll need a few spares.

    IMHO anything lighter green(Redding) is better than darker green(RCBS), but I would skip both and get a Co-Ax.

    Look at what Harrels has to offer. His turret press can be bought with extra turret heads also and you have the option as to how many threaded holes for dies also. As to producing better ammo i could not say but i would bet the tolerances and fit are better on his. I have used plenty of his stuff and he makes top notch equiptment.

    Re: Redding vs. RCBS turret press vs. Co-Ax

    Also got a chance today to see a forester Co-ax in action and I'm not thinking about it very seriously, what a great press. Do you have to use the forester rings with it? will reddings or lee "O-ring" lock rings work in it? I like them for my rock chucker and have put them on most of my dies.
