Our new Crusher II is the ideal press for reloading both rifle and pistol cartridges. The Crusher starts with a 1" diameter ram, compound linkage and a 4 1/2" press opening, which makes even the largest magnum cartridges easy to load. Its classic "O" frame design takes all standard 7/8" x 14 dies. The Crusher II is equipped with hardened and ground linkage pins and retaining rings for a smooth and tight operation. The new base design has 14 square inches of "machined flat" surface area with 3 mounting bolt holes (vs. 2 slots for Rock Chucker) for perfect rigid mounting. Unlike competitive models, the Crusher's ball handle mounts for either right or left-handed operation.
