I've been running an RCBS Partner Press now for a few years with pretty decent success. It was the first press I ever owned and have used it for reloading everything until a few months ago when I purchased an RCBS Pro 2000. However I still load all my .308 stuff on the Partner. Now that I am pretty hot and heavy into reloading (neck turners, concentricity gauges, blah blah blah..), I am curious if its time for a more robust press. The reason I ask is I just got a Forster BR micrometer die set and it rocks. Im finally able to get dead nuts on OAL everytime. However there is still some variations on the first stroke- I usually have to load long then continue to dial down each stroke to get the OAL I want. Every load takes a different number of tries. Im wondering if this variation is due to play that is coming from my little press?
Im kind of an RCBS whore, so I was looking at the Rockchucker as a replacement, but after trying several Forster products I was thinking about their Co-Ax press as well. Is it necessary or is my press just fine?
