As the quality and precision of reloading equipment has advanced in the last few years (AMP Annealers, AutoTricklers, Giraud Trimmers, IDOD Neck Turners, Primal Rights Priming Tools) we have watched companies overlook the core of the bench – the press. In late 2019 we began R&D on perfecting the precision reloading press – and we are happy to introduce the ZERO. It is the embodiment of our pursuit of ZERO tolerance reloading, with ZERO friction. The turret press also works toward ZERO variance in die setup. It will have ZERO equal on the market.
Milled from all-American billet aluminum and stainless steel, this press moves with the help of 14 bearings, including a self-lubricating linear sleeve bearing, guiding the precision-ground 1.25″ ram with less than .0006″ of diametric clearance. Each press is hand measured and fitted, mating the ram and the bearing, ensuring the most precise ram stroke on the market – ZERO doubt about that. The linkage system will also glide on bearings and custom hardware which will allow us to assemble the system with near-ZERO slop. The operation of the oversized ram, with the .75″ steel arm and ZERO-friction knob will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
The turret system will be secured using a, over-sized, custom-made ZERO-point pull-stud, and the turret will be located using an oversized ball-detent system. Changing the position of the turret from one die to another will require only a turn of a (supplied) t-handle. When indexing the turret, repeatability variance of the system will be less than .0005″.
The opening in the press will allow for sizing and seating of cases up to 338LM, and will accept standard 7/8″ dies and standard shellholders (we prefer the Redding). The press CAN be used for Cheytac-class reloading, but may (depending on your die setup and bullet length) require you to “scoop” the bullet into the sizing die and down into the case before sizing.
Using factory shellholders there will be a small amount of float available to account for uncontrollable 3rd party tolerances. We will also be making and selling shellholders specifically fit to the system at a later time.
We have designed a decapping/primer-catch system into the body of the press, eliminating goofy surgical hoses and baby food-like jars. A simple slide-out tray will make this mundane process smooth, simple, and unobtrusive.
We will ship all presses with a standard bolt-down plate, but will also have available Inline Fabrication plates for the system that will mount seamlessly.

Read this and still ready to ask what it does that your vintage single stage doesn’t? Bullet point time, strap in.
- The zero-slop turret head allows you to change between dies, eliminating the variability induced when removing and resetting dies
- The turret head allows the press to work with multiple die-attachments (7/8 thread currently, 1-1/4 thread, and future unreleased stuff) without goofy thread-stacking adapters
- The available ram-stroke here is 4.4″, allowing you to use it on significantly large cases
- Total opening of 4.75″, with no unnecessary shellholder protrusion at the bottom of the stroke
- The extended ram position will be more repeatable than any ram-style press on the market
- More efficient energy transfer from handle to ram via bearing-guided motion throughout the system
- Adjustable/interchangeable handle setup for maximizing leverage/feel based on operation
- Internally contained primer-catch system, eliminating baby food jars and surgical hoses hanging from your press
- Made in America, from American materials
Consistency is paramount in precision reloading, and that’s what we are really chasing here. From one stroke to the next, or one reloading session to another, we want every piece of ammo you make to be as consistent as possible. It’s the whole goal. The ZERO was designed around that goal, and provides you with an unmatched ability to create consistency.
THE PRE-ORDER IS CLOSED! We have sold our first major run of presses, but will continue production at full capacity, and we expect presses to be in-stock starting in October.

Well worth the money. Very tight tolerances, super smooth operation. There isn’t any play in the linkage, and the bearings in the linkage make it smooth and can feel any change in pressure while sizing or seating. Lives up to the name “zero”. Zero adjustments need to be made when switching back and forth between dies/calibers once you’ve set them up.
Mike Burdis (verified owner) –
I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the Zero since it has arrived. There is no slop anywhere in the system. Fit and finish is absolutely top notch. I’ve yet to shoot ammo loaded with the Zero yet, but I’ve been able to compare measurements on loaded ammo versus my other press. The ES has been cut in half on all measurements taken, so I can assume velocity spreads and accuracy will replicate this consistency. Something. I wasn’t expecting was the comfort while using the press. After many hours in front of it, there’s less fatigue and far less effort using this press compared to my other one. Would recommend this press 10/10. Another home run from the Area 419 team!
Keith Maggard (verified owner) –
The ZERO is a great example of American high quality engineering..design & craftsmanship. I have ZERO regrets for the purchase and would highly recommend to anyone that’s considering one.
Joseph Musso (verified owner) –
This has to be the nicest press I’ve ever used.
The fit and finish on this press is unbelievable. If you use quality dies your concentricity level will be next to nothing. I think this is the future of reloading presses. The Area 419 team knocked it out of the park again.
Maksim (verified owner) –
I loved my Redding t7 for its turret head, than I moved to German Prazipress and loved it for its precision and smooth run. Now I have everything I used to love in one Zero press. Turret head, precise, smooth, super built. Guess what I love now.
Peter R. Ricci (verified owner) –
Best reloading press on market but will replace my rockchucker and my other turret press. Big enough to hold all my resizing dies. Second top was order and the ease to change the top is awesome and no extra movement when resizing . Small thing but love the tray that catches the small primers.
kdrumie (verified owner) –
Very impressed with this press. Yes it is expensive but this is a buy once cry once thing. If you get this press you won’t ever need another.
Anthony Graham (verified owner) –
Great piece of machinery. Most stable press I have ever used. Smooth as butter and no wobble when using. Engineering at its finest. Zero is defiantly worth the money. Buy the best first and forget about the rest.
Thomas Hogue (verified owner) –
I pre ordered the Zero and received one of the first shipments and all I can say is WOW. I have a Forster Co-Ax, Dillon 750 and a RCBS Rock Chucker and you simply cannot compare the craftsmanship of the Zero press. If you are chasing precision or someone who believes in “buy once, cry once” this is an exceptional piece of equipment!
Perry Wood (verified owner) –
I am really ticked off that I had to wait 77 years to get a reloading press as good as this one. This press is certainly worth the wait and the money. My current reloads have their ES in mid single digit range, with this press maybe I can do better.
Wes (verified owner) –
I’m not sure why it took somebody so long to make a truly precision machined press, but I’m glad 419 finally did it for us. This press is something special that’s been designed and manufactured to tightest of tolerances you won’t find with Forester, RCBS, Redding, Dillon, etc. This is my 5th press to add to my reloading bench replacing my current precision king, the Forester Co-Ax.
Measuring runout with a 21st Centrury tool on loaded Berger VLD bullets, I’m seeing about half the runout I was seeing with the Co-Ax.
Is it worth it? I guess that’s subjective. I got the same question from people with I bought the AMP annealer. It’s expensive, but you get what you pay for. And just like the AMP, if the Zero was stolen today, I’d buy another Zero tomorrow.
If you’re going to precision reload, then buy a precision reloading tool. Remove the variables in your equation and you’ll get better results. Will it make you shooter tighter groups? Maybe not, but you’ll know that it’s not your equipment holding you back.
It’s the best press money can buy, no contest.
Buy once, cry once!
Doug P. (verified owner) –
What an awesome product… It is nothing less than amazing, so smooth and effortless. Just opening the box you could see the quality and the craftsmanship of this product before you even pulled the handle. It’s so nice when you make a decision to buy a first run product that hasn’t even been out for any real reviews and when it arrives you have no regrets even before you try it for the first time. It’s one of those things that when using it it just amazes you how solid it is and how there is virtually Zero play in any of its components. I am so glad that I pulled the trigger and got one of the first Zeros before they set the new standard to shoot for in the reloading press world.
Kaiser Kustoms (verified owner) –
Worth of every single Dollar! Perfect! Wonderful! A masterpiece!
Stephen Goldsmith (verified owner) –
As per usual Area419 have hit this one out of the park. Precision most of us only dream of (or never even considered could be possible). Ergonomic and well thought out features and even bubble wrap in the box to keep my two year old entertained while played with my new toy. Is it worth it I heard you say. Well I expect to use it for the rest of my life and then probably my son will use it for the duration of his. I seriously doubt I’ll need it serviced ever and am confident that no other press can get close to the quality and precision. I’m happy to pay for my Giraud, AMP and V3 auto trickler what would be the point in running all those precision instruments without the press. Waiting with baited breath for the accessories for the press to be released I’m sure there will be things I didn’t know I needed I simply must have.

Very satisfied, design and build quality is superb! It is one of those things that is just a pure pleasure to use.
Leroy Brace (verified owner) –
I’ve been reloading for 30yrs with many different reloading presses. The ZERO is without a doubt the finest press I’ve used to date. The price of entry is high and not for everyone BUT if you have the funds you will not be disappointed. Its a masterful piece of engineering with tolerances second to none. I’ve spent more on 1K pieces of brass which only last a shooting season, this press should last a life time. I’m very happy with my purchase.
Herman Potgieter (verified owner) –
I am from South Africa and have an engineering and manufacturing company. I ordered with the initial launch and was very impatient in waiting. It was so worth the wait. The craftsmanship, quality and engineering is superb which is probably an understatement. Setting up for the first batch of loading was a breeze. The press is everything advertised and more. Some people complain about the price but I am guessing they do not have experience with new product development and costs associated with it nor the costs involved in the zero press. In the end you get what you pay for. I have various Dillon presses, all great but quality cannot be compared. Congratulations with this awesome product, definitely recommended to any reloader who appreciates precision and quality. Thank you guys, looking forward to the accessories.
Chase Christensen (verified owner) –
Best press on the market. Being able to swap back and forth between dies with 100% repeatability is worth it to me. Comparing the ZERO to other presses is like comparing a custom action to a factory action.
David Mitchell (verified owner) –

Would totally purchase again. Very happy to have ordered when I did. It made a great Christmas 🎁 present to have under the🎄tree. Felt like a little kid on Christmas.
The Zero is very robust, precise and pleasant on the eyes 👀. I’ve got mine mounted on the Big Dog Steel base. Can’t wait to see what other accessories are developed that can be added alongside. Now I just need to clean my bench, the never ending battle, lol.
Anthony Hughes (verified owner) –
It is a remarkable interpretation of an older technology. It takes the covenience of a rotary press and turns it into a precision machine with NO loss of tollerance. It is so smooth and precise, it makes reloading enjoyable. I am very pleased with my purchase. Yes it was expensive, but now it is paid for, and I can enjoy it for years to come.
Mark Hanson (verified owner) –
I don’t like drilling holes in my bench, so when the guys at Area 419 sent me the bolt hole pattern, I was able to create my own mount. The press works great!
Paul Cross (verified owner) –
Michael M. (verified owner) –
The Zero arrived and was immediately installed on the Big Dog Steel mount. In 54 years of metallic reloading, the Zero is the smoothest press I’ve ever used. Repeatability and consistency is superb… it’s truly a product of state of the art CNC machining.
Dan Jarecke (verified owner) –

Bradley Schwaiger (verified owner) –
First off I am still just starting out reloading. Its something I have wanted to get into for a long time, and I have been looking at a turret press for a while just because I could leave my dies setup long term I only reload a few calibers anyway. I’m really happy at how smooth the zero is I have beat up joints so its really nice. I wish it was quicker to change positions but I like how repeatable this system is so I can live with the rotation the way it is. My only real gripe Is I had to grind down the head of one of the supplied bolts so I could put the primer catch tray in. My guess is that will get fixed and subsequent iterations wont have that problem. The last thing I like is leverage this thing has a ton of leverage so I know I pushed hard enough to resize brass, no guessing here.
Absolutely love my Zero. I’ve loaded on a Co-Ax, arbor presses and several Dillon’s all for precision ammunition but this was love and first feel. Something about it just feels ‘right’ and you won’t understand until you try one. I love using this so much I actually sold my entire Dillon 750 setup and this is now my only press for everything I do.
Michael Klan (verified owner) –

Garrett (verified owner) –
I will start out by admitting that I was skeptical when the Zero was released. The attention to every little detail on this press is amazing. The consistency in my sizing and seating operations has improved and I feel like I’m not chasing my tail anymore. I would definitely recommend a Zero Press to friends.
Sebastian F. (verified owner) –
Not sure what I can say that hasn’t been said by folks much more reputable than me; but this thing puts a smile on my face every time I use it. You have to experience it but it’s that good and worth every penny.

All I can say is WOW! I’ve been reloading since 1968 and have used too many presses to even remember, well over a dozen. I was a member of the NBRSA and shot competitively in the mid 70’s and I still shoot in local competitions, so I appreciate excellent reloading equipment. Over the years it seems like there have been major improvements to almost all of the equipment with the exception of the press itself. Sure some are better than others, but until I tried the Zero Press I didn’t appreciate accurate and advanced a reloading press could be. If I took a lot of time setting up both my neck sizing and bullet seating dies, I could get within .001 runout on both the case and the seated bullet. Not bad, but once I setup my dies in the Zero Press the runout went down to .0005!!!! Plus I can leave them setup in the turret, so I don’t have to go through the process every time. The only system that even comes close is using an L.E. Wilson bullet seating die and a K&M Precision Arbor Press which really slows down the process.
One last item is the beautiful packaging you do on everything I’ve purchased so far. Please keep up the excellent work and keep developing innovative products.
You have made me a lifelong customer, I only wish you were around when I first started reloading!

James Tatum-Delacruz (verified owner) –
Haven’t exactly used the press since it was the first item I bought to get into hand loading. But I for sure appreciate the engineering that went into this press.. can’t blame the press if it’s the best on the market.

It all happened so rapidly. Last week l saw the ZERO on a favorite supplier’s web site – one of those: -We think you might be interested in this- kind of things. The next thing I knew, I ordered it and it arrived a few days ago. I am enjoying it. There is a measurable increase in consistency from the press I was using before.
Upon my return home from work today I see a nice review in my Handloader magazine.
Thanks for making this wonderful press!

Holee Molee…This is the most impressive press I’ve ever had my hands on. About fifteen years ago I settled on a series of single-stage Redding presses for my setup, and five years ago added a turret press. The Zero Press is the One-Ring…it rules them all. The action is so slick and smooth, the tolerances so tight. This press is built like a benchrest action. So impressive.

All the major-name-brand-press manufactures make reasonable products within an acceptable price range. These presses will get the job done within acceptable metrics of performance, for most re-loaders. The ZERO, at $1200 retail, simply is not within the framework of the current paradigm. The QUALITY hits you in the face as soon as you open that box it ships in and does not disappoint from there. You can feel it as soon as the ram is moved. This press does not have the standard $50 worth of engineering in it like the ones we have lived with for decades. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR AND THIS DELIEVERS IN SPADES. This company did not hype anything. WORTH EVERY DOLLAR SPENT.

I was working on .45 ACP when I noticed I needed to load 4 more rounds of .223. I just spun the turret as everything was already set up and in place, worked on those 4 rounds and went right back to my .45 ACP project. 306 rounds of .284 win with less than 1/2 thousandth run out.

Awesome press! Sure beats the heck out of my Redding T7 press in terms of repeatability and stability. I love not having that silly spent primer tube hanging down between my legs anymore. On the Zero, I added some anti chafe tape to the sides and bottom of the spent primer tray. The tray now slides silently in and out, fits with a satisfying amount of friction and won’t ruin the beautiful finish. My only suggestion is perhaps Area419 could come up with a clever way to stow, store, hang the wrench that comes with zero die rings on the press somewhere.
John P. (verified owner) –
I wanted a Zero Press since I first saw it in a video. I hadn’t viewed one in person so I hoped it lived up to the hype. There was several weeks lead time to ship but it was well worth the wait. The press far exceeds my expectations. Everything about it is beefy and designed to last. I like the locking turret head with zero play for reloading for my rifles. The press isn’t cheap but once you open the box you can understand why. The R&D that went into creating this press is evident. Even the shipping box is high end with stiff, solid foam. I am glad I bit the bullet, pun intended, and ordered it. I bought an extra turret head as well for future use. I highly recommend the Zero Press as an investment if you are really into reloading.

Insane rigidity and build quality. Cannot praise this press enough.
Shawn (verified owner) –
Amazing repeatability. Locks up solid as a rock. Super smooth. The biggest advantage is setting up dies and never having to touch them again

Best Turret press on the market by a wide margin. Packaging is a work of art.

If you have a bit of OCD this is the only press to use. Add the Zero Modular Shellholder System and it just gets better!!

The best turret press on the market

Very happy with this purchase. I load a lot of ammo for various precision rifles and this is very accurate and repeatable.

I mainly load for PRS and long-range precision hunting – so volume is secondary to consistency. This press is simply amazing. I have more mechanical leverage and yet retain the feel of an inline arbor press setup. I can load faster with high repeatability using Short Action Custom die.
The only thing I’d note is that there isn’t as much working room in between the ram and the press when extended all the way up say, when compared to single stage press. I had to change how I manipulate components but not a big deal.
Lastly, I noticed with depriming that sometimes primers won’t fall down the back chute and stay either at the top of press or fall off the side – no biggie since I’m thinking of dedicating an old single stage press for dedicated decapping. Don’t want all that primer dust munging things up on such a nice press.

This is the best of everything in the reloading arena. The quality very much reflects the pride in craftsmanship at Area 419. This press is everything I could want for precision reloading. Extreme quality! Excellent craftsmanship and customer experience.

Great product! After I got it mount to my bench I checked concentricity tolerances on my brass and precision on the ram at it’s raised position. Cycling it and applying pressure at its fully raised position and the dial caliper did not budge. Great product. Very happy with the results.

Worth. every. penny.

The only press you’ll ever need.

can you machine a bullet that mounts to the arca rail
as shown in picture?

The press is well built, it’s like a cinder block sitting on your bench. If you’re not sizing large cases (28 nosler up) I would recommend just getting a Herral’s turret press. It’s over priced for what it does.

This loader is rock solid and has Zero competition.

This this is a tank…no detail overlooked…even down to the packaging. One can tell that every component was obsessed over and speaks to the personality type of those tangled up in precision reloading…in a respectful tip of the hat way.

Its everyting you would expext from Ares 419. A real Professional piece of equiptment. A thing of beauty really, unbeleavably smooth to operate.

I shoot competition benchrest. my shooting partner said, the only thing wrong with the press, was that it was at the wrong house : ) Great Press!!!!
I was told I might be the only shooter in town that has one.(pop 100k) This is an outstanding tool! Worth every dollar amount spent. Looking forward to getting the .308 sizing die. The customer service is awesome!
Brian Clarke (verified owner) –
Works amazing could not be more happier with how it works. Wish I had the attachments to use the rail available on the back.

Haven’t yet got to load on t this press but after watching for a few years the reviews I decided to jump over to a turret so I can leave my dies setup
Jan Cremers (verified owner) –
Wonderfull and super reliable!!
Daryl (verified owner) –
Everything is tight and precise, while also remaining remarkably smooth. This is one great press. I loaded 350 rounds my first time using it. No problems, no complaints.
