    Recently bought from another member, I was looking for standard 7/8- 14 press, this is not. Since I have both calibers, I bought it anyway. Then right after I got it cleaned and ready, I got a message for another (standard) press which I’m buying since that’s what I’ve been acquiring the tools for.
    Research says the junior uses the old hand press #310 tong tools. Comes with 38 special and #153 which I believe is 270. I have not used it so cannot vouch for condition other than: seems sturdy, complete except for primer seat tool, 8 bucks on web but most use hand priming anyway. Ram runs smooth without drag or any rough spots, turret tight with positive indexing. I believe it to be in very good condition but you make the call.
    If you have no experience; I load five calibers, regularly for forty years, never used a press, but given my other experiences, I’m guessing this works best neck sizing fire-form brass rather than full length unless the caliber is small and modification is light. Since I’ve added to it, and have invested six gallons of gas to get it, you’ll find 37 bucks more than I paid but less than it’s worth.
    You come to me. I dont want to ship nor trade.

    Good deal for somebody. The dies would probably fetch twice that on ebay.

    Theres a guy on ebay that sells plates to convert tru-lines to 7/8" some hold 4 and some 6 dies. Someone could turn yours into a 6 die 7/8" press easily.
