Lyman Products introduces the right-sized Brass Smith Ideal press, ideal for beginner or experienced reloaders thanks to several top features.

Beginners using the C-Frame style press will appreciate its rugged frame of cast iron and all steel parts with a central handle position for easy ambidextrous use and a ball handle for a smooth, comfortable operation.

The new Lyman Brass Smith Ideal press has features for beginner or experienced reloaders.

Experienced reloaders will love the compact size that requires minimal bench space and its compound linkage for optimum leverage including a 1-inch diameter ram and a 3 7/8-inch press opening. The opening can handle all pistol calibers and rifle cartridges with a loaded length of up to 3.700-inches. The Ideal press is the perfect auxiliary press for reloaders wanting to perform a separate operation from their main press.

All reloaders will find the compact size, rugged construction with a durable powder coat finish and ambidextrous design to be a welcome addition to their reloading applications. The Ideal press accepts all 7/8 x 14 thread dies and standard shell holders, and weighs just 12.6 pounds.

“The new Brass Smith Ideal Press is a single-operation press that really gives a reloader plenty of options,” saidTrevor Mullen, VP of Global Marketing and Business Development for Lyman Products. “Very affordable, it makes a great starting press for a novice reloader that allows them to reload a variety of pistol and rifle ammo. For the seasoned reloader, this C-Frame style press gives them the advantage of adding to their operation without having to reconfigure an existing press or take up lots of bench space with another big press.”
