    Sample text

    Remember that, at this point, the case head is no longer seated against the bolt face, as it was driven forward (of course) with the rest of the case by the action of the firing pin’s impact. As the pressure of the second or main pressure curve mounts, though, the rear of the case, wanting to expand to fill the complete cavity of the chamber, now moves back until it impacts the bolt face. This causes the body of the case to stretch, increasing its length, but the stretching isn’t uniform. Because the thinner sections of the case body are firmly gripping the chamber walls, the vast majority of the case stretching occurs adjacent to the web body junction where the transition from the thinner body abruptly changes to the much thicker and non-expanding web section of the case.

    A turret support coupled with CNC machining and a heavy backbone on the Redfield T-7 turret press virtually eliminates turret tip under a heavy load. Redding designs its turret presses to actually tip very slightly, but into square rather and out of square. It is an interesting design and one very possible to achieve with today’s CNC machining technologies. The head is of a large diameter to hold the seven die positions, and a very stout spring powers a large-diameter detent ball, which recesses into position on the bottom of the turret head.

    While traditional C-frame presses were fine for many smaller cases, they could deflect under the heaviest loads. The advent of the O-frame press was a benefit to reloaders of larger cases, which require heavier sizing pressures. The design of the O-frame press is not really a round “O,” but rather one that more closely resembles a rounded-corner square, with the ram located centrally in the bottom of the “O” and the die attachment point directly above on center. This design improves the elimination of distortion under a heavy load and keeps the die and ram in square, true alignment.
