Newly introduced by Lyman Products at the 2018 SHOT Show in Las Vegas is the Brass Smith Ideal press, a small-sized (and budget priced) reloading press which can handle all pistol calibers and rifle cartridges with a loaded length of up to 3.700".

Beginners using the C-Frame style press will appreciate its rugged frame of cast iron and stainless steel parts with a central handle position for easy ambidextrous use and a ball handle for a smooth, comfortable operation.

Experienced reloaders will love the compact size that requires minimal bench space and its compound linkage for optimum leverage including a 1" diameter ram and a 3 7/8" press opening. The Ideal press is the perfect auxiliary press for reloaders wanting to perform a separate operation from their main press.

All reloaders will find the compact size, rugged construction with a durable powder coat finish and ambidextrous design to be a welcome addition to their reloading applications. The Ideal press accepts all 7/8 x 14 thread dies and standard shell holders and weighs just 12.6 pounds.

The new Lyman Brass Smith Ideal Press is a single-operation press that really gives a reloader plenty of options. Very affordable, it makes a great starting press for a novice reloader that allows them to reload a variety of pistol and rifle ammo.

For the seasoned reloader, this C-Frame style press gives them the advantage of adding to their operation without having to reconfigure an existing press or take up lots of bench space with another big press.
