If you’re looking for the most authentic gun ownership and shooting experience, nothing beats loading your own ammo. Fortunately, you do not need sophisticated equipment to do that — all you need is a reloading press and the necessary supplies. 

Using a reloading press to chamber your own ammo is not only an enjoyable, almost meditative experience, it can also help you save a considerable amount of money on ammo, which you’ll be able to reinvest into other gear and equipment. 

A reloading press gives you the freedom to experiment with different cartridges, casing, primers and other ammo components to create the perfect ammunition for your shooting style and needs. 

At Natchez Shooters Supplies, we stock a wide variety of reloading presses, parts, and accessories from industry-leading brands: Hornady, Mark7, and Lyman, to name a few. Family owned and operated since 1979, we are your one-stop shop for all the tools and supplies you need to case your own ammo and get the most value out of every shot. 

 

Presses FAQs 

What are the different types of reloading presses? 
There are four main types of reloading presses, distinguished by their loading capacity — in other words, how many rounds they can load at the same time:  

  • Single stage presses are the simplest and, consequently, the cheapest presses of the bunch. As their name implies, they can only load one round at a time. Single stage presses typically feature only a single die, which means they are designed for one specific cartridge. This makes them ideal if you only need a limited amount of ammo or if you’re loading a very specific type of rounds. 
  • Turret presses are similar to single stage presses, except that they also feature a so-called turret ring which can hold several dies (usually up to 5-6). This means that turret presses are only capable of loading one round at a time, but they also allow you to quicky switch between the different dies. This makes turret presses useful if you use ammo of several different calibers. 
  • Progressive presses are the most sophisticated type. Even though they still operate under a manual level action, they are more automated than single stage presses and turret presses. Progressive presses often feature separate casings and gunpowder feeders in addition to a revolving shellplate, which can hold several casings at the same time. With a progressive press, you’re still only chambering one round at a time — but because the powder and the casing are fed automatically with each lever action, you can load your rounds much faster. This makes progressive presses suitable for pistol ammo or semi-automatic rifle ammo. 
  • Automatic progressive presses, also known as autodrives, are an evolution of the classic progressive press design. Even though their operating principle is the same, automatic presses are fully automated, as the name suggests. That means that you don’t have to pull any levels to load your ammo — you simply load all the components into their designated feeders, press the button, and the machine loads your ammo for you. Automatic progressive presses are the fastest and most efficient type of reloading presses — however, they are also the most expensive. 

The Natchez Shooters Supplies inventory includes all types of presses, from single stage to automatic, at the most competitive prices! 

How do I install a reloading press?  
While the exact installation process varies from one press to another, all presses need to be secured in place to work properly and safely. Ideally, you should mount your reloading press onto a designated reloading table or workbench. 

Are reloading presses legal? 
Yes, loading your own ammo is legal in all 50 states across the U.S. As long as the ammo is intended for your personal use, you can make as much of it as you want using your press. However, selling the ammo you make yourself without a proper license is illegal. 

Can I buy a reloading press online?  
Yes, you can buy a reloading press online without any restrictions from Natchez Shooters Supplies. However, this does not apply to casings, bullets and other supplies you need to load ammo using a press. Some states have restrictions on purchasing and shipping ammo components. Check your local legislation before stocking up on supplies for your handloaded ammo. 

How much do reloading presses cost? 
The price of a reloading press depends primarily on its type. Single stage presses are the most affordable and can cost as little as $100. Turret presses are slightly more expensive and typically cost between $150 and $200. A progressive press will set you back anywhere between $200 and $1,500 depending on specification and accessories, such as feeders. Finally, fully automatic presses command a price of $2,000+.
