I've had mine for years.
Absolutely no complaints.
Load all my precision and oddball calibers on it.

Not using a T7, but using a Rock Chucker Supreme.

I Am using an RCBS Chargemaster Lite. works well, pretty consistent but i still double check the charge on a gempro250.

I'd recommend an Inline Fabrication ultra mount. I have the press and mount screwed/bolted down to a thin, cheap, 1/2' table top and clamp the whole setup down to my workbench.

That way i can remove and clear up space to work on my rifles.

don't forget a case trimmer and chamfer tools

I just sold my T7. Once I got the Forster CO-AX it was collecting dust. Turret will have play which will cause runout. I had milled the turret spacer to remove most of it which made turning the turret a little harder but it reduced runout. You are better off getting a CO-AX IMO.

I absolutely love mine. You hardly ever see them for sale because nobody wants to get rid of them. I shoot maybe 100 rounds a week, so getting a full blown progressive press would take up too much space for how much I would use it. But a single stage was getting a bit annoying, especially with batch processing. I would decap/resize/reprime 100 at a time, then flare 100 at a time, then throw powder seat and crimp all at once. This lead to having a bunch of half processed rounds at all stages of reload in a dozen containers taking up space. Now I just load rounds to completion, and its great. Just having a piece of brass on the press from start to finish is great because I know exactly whats going on and what happens next.

I am on a loadmaster and if one comes up cheap [ T-7 or another loadmaster ] , I will pick it up [T -7 would have to have at least 2 tool heads ]
I have 6 nephews and 2 nieces that reload here .
I / we decap and prime off press but for pistol cases , all the die spots are filled . [ 7 Pistol calibers ]
While I have a single stage , it is used mostly for OAL .
The rifle cases are decapped , bell and sized on press [ hand deprimer does not like bottle necks ]
With another 2 die holes I could auto check OAL and powder fill .

If you were a 'Real Reloader' you would own both a Forester and a Redding T7.

I enjoy my T7. Really speeds up the batch process vs. a single stage without the complexity of a progressive. Few would have any issues with the quality of ammo it can produce.
