While a case is in the Lyman Quick-change Jaws it is supported by spring-loaded jaws that contact the base of the cannelure for more positive extraction. The jaws are also self acting so when a cartridge is placed in the die and the handle of the Co-Ax 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.
This complete assembly contains everything you would need to easily swap out a single side of the ?S? or ?LS? Shell Holder Jaws for all compatible cases in any of the configurations listed below :
- 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
With Quick-change Jaws you simply remove the 10-24 x 5/8″ Button Head Screws (028271-020) and replace the jaws to get ready for the next size of case and die. No need to take apart the Shell Holder Jaws; swap or flip sides and spring-load the jaws; and reassemble. An alternative for other calibers is the Shell Holder Adapter Plate for Co-Ax Press though it does not allow a cartridge to float as with the Forster ?S? and ?LS? Shell Holder Jaws.
