I sold my PW 375C for a

Postby culot » Thu Feb 27, 2014 6:22 am

Italian press like this :thumbsup:

http://www.gaep.net/index.php?option=co ... &Itemid=56

For me who use only new Fiocchi & Cheddite hulls, result is always perfect, crimp , total length of cartridge etc etc

If i want another caliber i just change crimp finisher and star crimp tool

if i want to reload, i have to get a calibrate tool and deprime & prime tool.

I loved my PW 375C, but this is another level of loading :smile:

Nope !! But i have a Gaep VS 1500 press , i haven't see any until 2011 when i first time got a link to gaep about their
crimpers, i started with a T3 in a bench drill to improve my crimp when using my old trusty PW 375C .
later i get interested in the way the Italian made their loads, so 2012 i sold my PW and buy the VS 1500 press.
but when i got it i wasn't happy :mad: Power cable was damaged ( i see the core ) and there was to much slack
in the bronze bushing , so the tools don't line properly. Design of press is good, but it must be a blind blacksmith
putting the parts together, so after some hard argumenting with the seller i got new bronze bushing and a excuse.
Today i shouldn't buy a gaep press, there are other press with better quality in italy . But after some struggling
with change bushings , and modifying the shot dispenser and change the Bn2 crimp toll with a gaep T2 special crimper
it work really good, btw: the T2special is designed by a Greek Nikos and i read about it on a italian reloading/hunting forum.
And now when i really get to now the press, my loads always look assume with no swirl crimp and perfect taper,
and the italians is extremely finicky with the total height of the cartridge, and i get constant heights

So that's the story about my press :smile: ( i don't sell anything , i'm a locksmith for profession )

That's why italians is extremely finicky with the total height because crimp depth affect pressures very much in some loads. Italy have four companys who sell those same style crimpers and presses. Cortini, Colvini, O.M.V and Gaep.

Yup ! And some of them don't produce /make their own crimpers.

All of them are pretty good , and all of them will improve ' a good american äcrimp "
