    Yeah it is. So much I bought three presses. I'm set up to do 12 gauge, 16 gauge, .223, .30-30, .45ACP , 9mm .38/357 & .380auto.

    So far I have not tried the .380 auto dies or the .45 ACP. Everything else came out really well except I'm having trouble making a good .30-30

    Wouldn't you know it? o_O

    I shot these with my 223 handloads from 230 yards.

    That's not my very best shooting, but I'm really happy with the way those loads work.

    *********************************************

    I found 3 good targets for my 30-30. I don't know what I got so worried about. But I am going to explain:

    In the center picture there is the bullseye in the middle of the target and a second stickon bull at 6 oclock. If I remember correctly, there is one shot in the upper bull at 8 o'clock near the center dot. (I just now looked at the target again and the single bullet from the group in the upper bull was almost dead center.)

    In the stickon bull there are 6 holes in a nice group. I shot 7 times, once at the main bull and 6 at the stickon bull. My reasoning was If I could get one bullseye I could get em all. But I did not know if it was in the bull above because I could see all the other holes. I think all 7 shots were bullseyes and 6 were in 1 group.

    Well it grouped nicely.
    I need to set up my dies better.
    Also I have a new set of .45-70 dies I haven't tried yet.
    I bought a Marlin levergun with a Skinner peep.
    It was kind of a Christmas present to myself. ;)
