changing from lyman turret to redding single stage

so i'm considering selling my lyman t2 and getting a redding single stage. the lyman is ok, but seems to have a bit of play in the ram. i'm wondering if you can buy the hornady lock n load bushing insert for the redding? if so, i think this would be an ideal set up for me...just buy the bushings for my existing dies and switch out will be a breeze. does anyone else do this with a single stage? i've read very good reviews on the hornady bushings but would like to hear some pros/cons from anyone hear that uses them. thanks guys.

I have the Hornady SS LNL and love it. Really don't have any cons on the LNL bushings or anything. I love them.

I use the bushing system in my RCBS Rock Chucker and love it. Very fast die changes. I liked it enough to buy a separate RCBS taper crimp die for 9mm. Once the sizing, expanding and crimp dies are set and locked, it takes less than 5 seconds to swap dies. Same goes for the seating die unless you change depths.

I don't know if the Redding will accept the bushing, but their web site should help.
A lack of planning on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on my part.

The Lee Classic Cast now has the breech lock with the quick change bushings. It also has a better primer disposal system as well. They also have some of the breech lock bushings that have a lock ring made into it. You adjust the die. Then tighten an allen bolt. Now to change dies you push the black button give a quarter turn lift the die out.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
