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. 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. The Sea Girt-3 has the short swaging stroke only. It does not have the longer reloading stroke so cannot be used to reload ammo. 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 (WH-2) swaging & reloading press. An updated and strengthened version of the Walnut Hill press. The Walnut Hill-2 press can be used with any Walnut Hill (WH) swaging dies and accessories. The long stroke is used for reloading standard cartridges 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. An optional reloading adapter that accepts standard tee slot shellholders is available. 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 (WH-50) swaging & reloading press. An updated and strengthened version of the Walnut Hill press. This press has been especially redesigned and 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. 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 and the BMG shellholder adaper in the press ram.
Walnut Hill-JM (WH-JM) swaging & reloading press. This is another in the Walnut Hill line of presses and is intended primarily for making bullet jackets from copper or brass strip. It can be used to reload the BMG cartridge or similar large shells. Reloading standard cartride is also possible. The reloading adapters are included with the press. Any bullet swaging dies ade by RCE, LLC can be used to swage bullets. Most accessory items can be used but some may require special adapters due to the longer throat length of the press. The top plate of the press is wider than other WH presses and is threaded 2″-12. Bushings for 1.5″-12 and 7/8″-14 are included.
If only doing basic swaging the the Walnut Hill-2 press or the Sea Girt-2 would be better choices. Thirty pound shipping weight.
WH-002 Extra Punch Holder
Walnut Hill standard punch holder. One punch holder comes with the press but often extras are wanted. The punch holder comes with the drawbar and split lockring.
WH-007 Reloading Adapter
Walnut Hill reloading adapter. Use the press in the long stroke mode with the adapter to reload standard rifle and pistol ammo. The Walnut Hill press cannot be used to reload 50 BMG or similar cartridges.
WH-003 W H Handle
Replacement handle for the RCE, LLC presses. Standard handle with cushion grip and locknut.
Special punch holder used when making copper tubing jackets. The punch holder makes the work faster and easier by adding one inch of stroke to the press without modifying the press toggle. The holder is threaded 1.5”-12 and is hardened & tempered for long life. It is not needed for most swaging tasks.
