Forster Co-Ax

No need to complicate the reloading process. Our Co-Ax® Press keeps it simple while still delivering famous Forster precision.
The Forster Co-Ax® Loading Press comes with several unique features that help make it truly one of a kind, including:

  • Snap-in and snap-out die changing. You can actually change from sizer die to seater die in two seconds!
  • A positive spent primer catcher system which passes all spent primers and dirty carbon through a tube and into a container. That helps keep all working parts free of dirt and abrasives.
  • Dual floating guide rods to help ensure perfect alignment.
  • Because there is absolutely no torque on the head of the Co-Ax® Press, long life is the rule rather than the exception. Due to the design of the linkage and pivots, all forces are in equilibrium whether the press is at maximum work load or at rest.
  • Our Co-Ax® Press has three times the mechanical advantage of an ordinary "C" press. It's so effortless, full length sizing can actually be accomplished by operating the handle of the press with the little finger! There's no pain but plenty of gain.
  • The Co-Ax® Press delivers perfect alignment of the die and the case because the shell holder jaws are designed to float with the die, thereby permitting the case to center precisely in the die.
  • With no frame supports or swinging primer arms to interfere or cause an obstruction, the Co-Ax® Press provides plenty of elbow room for both right handed or left handed operators.
  • The Co-Ax® Press accepts any standard 7/8" X 14 reloading die, some with existing locking rings. We recommend Forster Cross Bolt Locking Rings.
  • The unique top priming device seats primers to factory specifications. The seater is always at right angles to the case head. Primers will not flip or tip. They will be seated straight, level and at a uniform distance below the case head. Primers cannot be crushed, nor will they protrude from the case head and cause premature firing.
  • The top of the stroke provides a rock solid stop for consistency.

User reviews of the Forster Co-Ax press:
I find it somewhat difficult to seat and remove the Ultra Mag cartridges from the great, but unique, Co-Ax shell holder. Also the actual opening for the cartridge and bullet when working the ultra mag cartridges, is marginal. However, all other operations for all other calibers seems to be perfect, and without flaw. Who could've looked into a futuristic glass ball and forseen the ultra mag cartridge lengths and then planned ahead. IF you know this person...send their email address and phone number please.

Not much to say but if you think your loading accurate ammo on your RCBS or Redding Press.... Think again

I bought my Bonanza Co-Ax press in 1972. I have yet to brake a part after all of these years. I have reloaded and formed literately tens of thousands of cases using my press. The force this press can generate has to be felt to be believed. There is nothing it cannot do well or better than most of the other single stage presses. I highly recommend this press. It will become your "go-to" press year after year.

I have had my co-ax press (labeled Bonanza) for 36 years and it has served me well for the entire time. I have used the press for loading everything from 375 H&H to 22 K Hornet. It is very acurate (I load for my 6mm PPC on it) Thank you very much for a great tool that has already lasted nearly a lifetime. Paul Holland Bigfork, Montana
