Hornady introduced a new single stage press at the 2015 NASGW Expo called the Iron Press.

The Iron Press is made of cast iron for strength and durability. According to Hornady, it is “built to be the heaviest, most rigid press in its class.” It is outfitted with top mounting points for the addition of case prep tools and other accessories.

The press uses the Lock-N-Load dies for quick die swaps. If you are using one of the Lock-N-Load progressive presses this might be a good addition to your bench.

The Iron Press has a suggested retail price of $268.81, while the accessory kit that includes the auto prime system, digital scale, case prep tools and more runs $618.94.

Hornady published this video to further explain the features of the Iron Press.

      @Garavella Yk Second that! Can't beat Lee Classic Cast Press for price, efficiency, ruggedness and value for money.

    Nice, I'd like to see it compared side by side with the Forster Co-Ax.
