Redding T-7 Press – Loading 30-06 Part I (HD)

In this video series, you will discover how to setup and load 30-06 rifle cartridges with the Redding T-7 Turret reloading press. In this video (Part I) I’ll walk through the process of setting up the sizing/depriming die, demonstrate the sizing/depriming process, and show cleaning of the primer pockets.

  1. Great videos! In the video, the T7 turret appears to deflect upwards during resizing. Have you measured the deflection and does this make it difficult to set a consistent headspace on the brass?
    Thanks!

  2. Clint- The turret head does deflect slightly, but it has a hard stop (the rear turret support) this is by design so that you can easily turn the turret, and also have consistent seating and sizing. I have found the consistency to be great. Perhaps I’ll do a single stage -vs- turret -vs- progressive comparison some day (with the same set of competition seating dies). Hope this answers your question.

    1. I suppose you could do so, but it would involve a lot of machining. Hornady does sell LNL conversion kits, but they are for single stage presses with larger threaded boars that accept a bushing with the standard 7/8″ x 14 TPI reloading die threading. So, you can convert most single stage presses, but the turret would be a challenge.
