Thread: Berived

    Unhappy Berived

    Tis a sad day today in the Reiver house hold.
    Whilst bumping some 308 brass my Lee press passed away at the handle fixing .For those doom Sayers who said it would never last they were right I have only had this press for 9 years.
    I shall give it a proper burial tomorrow for one taken at such a young age.

    I feel for your loss as I too had one die on me at the tender age of only twenty.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Thanks for the condolence 8x57 on my loss .Why do the good die young my press and I have loaded 22 hornet,243,308,270 and 444. We were looking forward to reloading for my 9.3x 74 together but I will have to do that with his little brother the Lee hand press.

    I read somewhere that Lee will supply new toggles / castings to repair these types of failures.
    - Might be worth an email to them.

    Had you bought a RCBS it would still be your loyal companion and will most likely outlive yourself.

    Quite so !
    I have had my trusty RCBS Rockchucker for over 40 years, it is in perfect working order and I am a clapped-out broken-down old bonebag on the way out being 81 next month.
