The Redding T7 Turret Press Review

Firstly, if you’ve had the pleasure of seeing the Redding T7 Turret Press in action, you’ll know how versatile this reloading press is. Highly skilled employees assemble the press from heavy-duty cast iron and 100% American Steel parts. Since Redding has built its reputation on producing high-quality reloading equipment for over seventy years, the T7 is no exception. In other words, this press combines a well thought out design with quality components that will last a lifetime.

While I do have other reloading presses currently set up, the T7 has quickly become one of my favorites. The seven-station turret head allows you to set up any combination of dies that you may want. The turret smoothly rotates between stations, with positive indexing at each point. Once you’ve set up the dies for your project, you can quickly move between stations without needing to readjust them.

Turret presses have several advantages over your traditional single stage press. The biggest is having the ability to set up your die sequence in advance. Also, having the extra real-estate on the turret head allows for the integration of additional reloading components such as a power measurer. While it does make sense to weigh your rifle loads separately, a powder measure is handy for pistol loads, for example.

First Impressions of the Redding T7 Turret Press

Honestly, it’s a beast! The press body is quite heavy, and that’s not a negative feature by any means, in my opinion, that works in its favor. The design allows for a full one hundred and eighty degrees of unlimited access to the shell holder and ram. The shell holder clips into place and can rotate three hundred and sixty degrees should you want it. With 4 3/4″ of press opening and 3 13/16″ ram stroke, the Redding T7 accepts even the largest calibers. The T7 takes full advantage of the 1″ solid stainless steel ram. There are no cheap components on this press whatsoever. The action has a smooth pull, and at 15″ including the ball, it has plenty of leverage.
