Redding T7
If you’re a shooting enthusiast interested in loading accurate ammunition the Redding T7 turret press is a good option for you. However, the progressive versions really need some changes!
Because with progressive presses, you barely acquire advanced features, precision, mobility, and diverse uses. I mean what’s the benefit if you can’t load ammo like benchrester Kyle brown? Nevertheless, I am going to review Redding T7 press to help you make an informed decision about the product.
Redding T7 Turret Press Review
The T7 is a sleek but massive press with a seven-station turret head that is easy to rotate. You can combine additional turret heads with this press, then you can switch your reloader into calibres. And, this will happen without any major adjustments or hassles.
Without any additional setups, you can assemble the handle in the press-position. Initially, the spinning also lets the nuts to drop into the right place. The green press body is made of cast iron with a durable finish.
• Cast Iron Construction
The cast iron configuration and the stout compound linkage helps to reload magnum cartridges with comfort. Initially, the cast iron compound bears high performance. You’ll get ample wear resistance and enough strength as well. The construction is ideal for all maximum reloading process, including large magnum cartridges.
• Smart Primer Arm
Here the smart primer arm allows the small to large primers to seat adequately. Though it’s very tricky to seat the primers into tight pockets. But, with t7 turret press, you can change the game.
You need to detach the cases and prime it in a proper manner to switch the primer carefully within the presses with accurate orientation. Also, the cleaning process of primers become easy after you replace the primer in the press. However, even if you replace the index, it won’t benefit you while shooting. It will just ensure accuracy.
Specs
Press Opening: 4.75 inches
Ram Diameter: 3.8 inch-stroke
Additionally, you’ll get a flexible hollow ram, a tubular primer configuration, and you can easily eradicate the tubular primer settings if it doesn’t fit your requirements.
• Full Die Set Semi-permanently
This extraordinary press has the biggest perk to offer. And no wonder it’s the ability to hold the consistency. Even if you expect a regular loading session or a becnhrest competition, all you gotta need is consistent loading of the cases.
Sometimes, with a progressive press, you lose the strike because of abrupt case loading. You end up lingering into changing cases and load them every time you insert a new one.
But here, you can mount a full die set which ensures a full die set semi-permanently. Moreover, this press allows all 7/8"-14 threaded dies. No doubt it’s an universal shell holder. You can’t admire more, trust me!
Pros
• Interchangeable turret heads
• Positive ram stop via powerful compound linkage
• Sufficient compatibility with smooth 1.75-inch ball
• Smart priming arm
• Additional ram stoppage
Cons
• Setting primer can be tricky for newbies
• It gets rusted easily
• The end slide bar is too long
Verdict
A powerful, robust press which stands on your all-purpose reloading desires. However, the optional automatic sliding bar might not impress you as it’s not necessary in most cases.
