Sea Girt-3 Press

Price: $325.00

The Sea Girt-3 press is a redesign of the original Sea Girt press.  And, yes, it is Girt- not grit.  See the photo taken in 1932 of the Sea Girt rifle range on the “About” page of the site.  Most Walnut Hill type dies are used with this press.

The Sea Girt-3 press is intended for the casual bullet maker who doesn’t need the power and versatility of the Walnut Hill-2 press.  It is excellent choice for someone that needs more than one press as it could be used for lighter work to allow the Walnut Hill-2 press to be used for harder tasks.  Walnut Hill dies are used but some accesssory tools are used only with the Walnut Hill presses.

The Sea Girt-3 has the short swaging stroke only.  It can be used to reload shorter cartridges like the 44 Magnum, 22 Hornet, or 218 Bee.  A special shellholder adapter is available for it.   A separate priming tool is needed.  Some advanced bullet swaging tools like a copper tubing jacket maker or some accessory tools that require the long stroke must be used with the Walnut Hill-2 press.

The Sea Girt-3 press has a shipping weight of 25 pounds compared to 29 pounds for the Walnut Hill-2 press so shipping cost is less.

Walnut Hill-2 Press

Price: $499.00

Walnut Hill-2 (WH-2) swaging & reloading press.   An updated and strengthened version of the Walnut Hill press.   Use with any Walnut Hill (WH) swaging dies and accessories.  The long stroke is used for reloading or doing special swaging tasks.  The short stroke has the power needed to easily swage bullets.  The press top plate is threaded 1 1/2″-12 and comes with a 1 1/2″-12 to 7/8″-14 reducer bushing.

The photo shows the optional reloading adapter for standard tee slot shellholders.  There is no provision for repriming.  A separate priming tool is needed.  The Walnut Hill-2 cannot reload 50 BMG cartridges.  Use the Walnut Hill-50 for reloading BMG ammo. 

The press is not compatible with other makes of swaging dies.

Walnut Hill-50 Press

 

WH-50

Price: $550.00

Walnut Hill-50 (WH-50) swaging & reloading press.  This press has been especially built to be able to reload the 50 BMG  and similar large cartridges.  It has the stroke length and throat depth (distance between the ram when down and the top plate of the press) to handle almost any BMG reloading requirement.

The press can be used with any Walnut Hill (WH) swaging dies and accessories but adapters may be needed for some accessories.  The long stroke is used for reloading and the short stroke for bullet swaging.  The press top plate is threaded 1 1/2″-12 and comes with two reducer bushings.  One reducer is  1 1/2″-12 to 1 1/4″-12 and the other is  1 1/2″-12 to 7/8″-14.  A reloading adapter that accepts standard tee slot shellholders and one that uses the RCBS screw-in BMG shellholder are included with the press.  The shellholders are not included.

The press is not compatible with other makes of swaging dies.  The photo shows the press with the standard punch holder for swaging bullets.
