The Redding Big Boss II Press is built with some of the same features as the original Boss press but built on a heavier frame with a larger ram and more usable ram stroke to make loading large magnum cartridges a breeze. Some of the new features include an innovative spent primer collection system which has a tube that redirects the primers away from the press and the Smart primer arm that automatically swings into position during the ram stroke and flips out of the way when not in use. Dies and shellholders sold separately. Simply, the only press you will ever need!
  • "Spent primer collection system
    Spent primers automatically drop through the large diameter hollow ram into a handy flexible plastic tube that can hold hundreds of spent primers before emptying, or be easily routed to your trash container.

  • 1 diameter ram

  • Heavy duty cast iron frame with 36° offset for easy access and visibility

  • Large 4-1/2" frame opening

  • 3-13/16" of ram stroke for easy reloading of magnum cartridges

  • Offset/straight pull ball handle for ease of operation

  • "Smart" Primer Arm"
    Smart primer arm automatically swings into position during the ram stroke and flips out of the way when not in use. For maximum sensitivity at the lowest possible leverage, priming is done at the end of the ram stroke.

  • Heavy duty compound linkage

  • Steel adapter bushing accepts all standard 7/8"-14 threaded dies and is removable for use with oversized dies

  • Frame with bushing removed accepts 1-1/4" - 12 dies

  • Includes primer catcher

  • Includes two primer arm assemblies, one each for both large and small primers
