Reloaders who use the Forster Co-Axial reloading press can take advantage of a quick-change system designed to hold shells, thanks to a set of spring-loaded jaws that contact the base of the cannelure. These self-acting jaws automatically close around the cartridge case as the press works, releasing the case once the press has done its work. Forster now offers a Quick-Change Jaw Assembly for its press, which makes swapping out these jaws for different case sizes a breeze.
- S-Large – holds .468″ to .562″ rim
- S-Small – holds .343″ to .422″ rim
- LS-Large – holds .531″ to .625″ rim
- LS-Small – holds .312″ to .375″ rim
Each Forster Quick-Change Jaw Assembly allows for easy swapping of S or LS shell-holder jaws, allowing users to adjust the shell holders to accommodate cases ranging in size from .312-.625-inch shell rims. This saves an incredible amount of time when switching over to a new caliber, and it also avoids the frustration of losing springs or misplacing a spare set of shell-holder jaws.
As an added bonus, with the Forster Quick-Change Jaw Assembly, there's no possibility of installing the jaws in the wrong direction, avoiding the frustration of assembling the wear plate in backwards or having a flipped jaw.
