So... My initial foray into reloading (besides hovering over my grandfather's shoulder as he used a Lee Shotgun press to reload 12 Gauge shells and his 30.06 Lee Loader) was to pick up the 3-Die set for 7.62x25 and the Factory Crimp Die (again, for 7.62x25) to reload some S&B brass for my CZ-52 and my TTC Tokarev. I also have a .303 Lee Loader, from when my stepdad (now deceased) reloaded S&B brass for his Enfield. My question, essentially, is this: Is there any way I can get away with NOT using a press? I'm EXTREMELY strapped for cash (read: living on handouts) and I can't even dream about scraping up the ~$50 for the Lee Hand Press... couldn't I just use light taps with a rubber mallet or something? What are your thoughts?
