Paul, I guess I should have been more clear. The press I have now is a Lee Hand Press, it is actually a press, but it does not mount on a bench.... designed to use in your hands. It accepts all Lee Factory dies, it is basically a singlestage press that you cant mount. Got it as a gift years ago. Does the 45/70 require much more leverage than hangun cartriges, if so, the hand press may not be the answer. (And no, this is not the old lee loader hammer it in kit... those would be REAL slow I would think.)
If I can ask, how much does it cost on average to load a box of 20 45/70 rounds... is it a significant savings?
