The Co Ax by Forster is a top quality item, and darn hard to find since production cannot keep up with demand. My advice: keep looking for a Forster (or the original maker Bonanza) Co Ax. Its worth the hunt and its worth owning.

I know Forster is behind on many items. I have a 6.5 Creedmoor die back ordered since Fathers Day.

Listening to suggestions from folks, a Forster Co-ax was added to the bench for Veteran's day. De-capped and sized just under 1K of 6.5 Creedmoor cases today. They will get run through the Giraud trimmer tomorrow on their path to some fun shooting soon.
Gonna take some getting used to with the operating handle a couple of feet higher than the Rockchucker I have been using for over half a century. I will get over it.



Pretty neat how it keeps the spent primers and associated yuck in a little bottle rather than all over the press, floor and operator.

In the process of updating, I think, to the Forster Co-ax.
Drilled and tapped my steel plate on the bench for 4 1/4x20 bolts to hold her in place.
Got the roller handle, led lights and offset linkage to allow better access to the cases.
Ordered a shell holder adapter so I can still use all my RCBS competition seaters. I really like feeding the bullets in the side rather than the bottom.
Oiled up the old Rock Chucker and put her in storage. After over half a century it was hard to replace her.
