Forster LS Shell Holder Jaws For Co-ax Press
When Forster originally tested their unique shell holder design, Forster full length sized two-hundred once-fired 300 H&H Magnum cases dry and unlubricated. Forster neither pulled the rims off the cases nor did they stick a case in the die. The heads of the cases and rims were unmarked by the shell holder jaws because the shell holder actually floats and permits the cartridge case to find its exact center in the die. When a case is in the shell holder it's supported by spring-loaded jaws that contact the base of the cannelure for more positive extraction. The shell holder is also self-acting, so when a cartridge is placed in the die and the handle of the press is activated, the jaws can open and close on the cartridge case. When the handle is raised, the jaws automatically open and release the case.
