Types of reloading presses
- Single Stage Reloading Press
Single-stage presses are the most common type of reloading instrument. This press type can only hold a single die at a time and performs only one procedure until another die is inserted. Single-stage presses are commonly used for producing rifle ammunition in low volume. This press type has the slowest output but is the most affordable.
- Turret Reloading Press
Turret presses hold multiple dies which can be manually or automatically indexed. A turret press requires multiple strokes of the lever to assemble a completed cartridge. Compared to a single-stage press, a turret unit can create more rounds per hour and can be quickly configured to handle rifle or pistol cartridges.
- Progressive Reloading Press
Progressive presses produce a completed round of ammunition with every stroke of the lever. A rotating carousel holds a series of cartridge cases that cycles through a series of dies with each operation. when the ram is cycled, several operations are completed simultaneously and the completed cartridge is discharged into a separate container.
