Nexus Press

“The Focal Point of Your Reloading Process”

When we set out to develop the Nexus Press, we were trying to build a press that eliminated any issues associated with the die and shell holder relationship. We also wanted to develop a more consistent and powerful cam over action every single cycle of the press as well as a work envelope so you can easily and efficiently process your brass without annoying C arms or small work areas in your way.  One of the highly innovative features of the Nexus Press is our dual floating shell holder system, which is also quick change and tool-less.  This is similar to a custom rifle action’s floating bolt head feature.  The shell holder will center on your die each time because of the “floating” ability of the shell holder.  Our shell holder system also allows .010″ more sizing than all other shell holders on the market.  So, if you are having issues not getting enough sizing out of your dies, there is no need to modify them anymore; the Nexus Press will take that headache out of the equation.  The press will include 4 shell holders: 223 Bolt face, 308 Bolt Face, Magnum Bolt face, and Lapua Magnum Bolt face.  Additional shell holders will be available to purchase a la carte.   One of the most groundbreaking features of the Nexus Press is the dual cam over pucks, which precisely stop the movement of your floating die block every single cycle of the press, eliminating the relationship between your shell holder and die when it comes to sizing and consistency.  One of the issues we discovered when developing the Nexus Press was the need for shell holder contact on the bottom of your die with traditional reloading presses.  This causes much stress on your reloading press and sizing or seating die, so we wanted to have the Nexus press cam over independently of the shell holder. Every single cycle of the press, your hard cam over pucks limits the travel, which gives you the same amount of cam over every single cycle, regardless of where your die is in relation to the shell holder.  The press cams over 2 degrees past the top dead center, allowing the same amount of sizing or seating with each stroke of the press.  The die retention system is entirely unique.  Two detents hold the die in the press, and you can use any standard lock ring available on the market today.  The die retention system has radial floating capabilities, allowing your die to center up each time it is used.  Additionally, the Nexus Press has storage areas for all your shell holders, dies, or cam over pucks.  There are also two 8×32 threaded holes to put small brushes in to help with brass prep.  The Nexus Press will easily allow you to run seven-eighths diameter and one-inch-diameter dies. To run one-inch diameter dies, you would simply replace this die retention top plate, and that’s it. The 1-inch plates will be available in early summer 2024. The Nexus Press uses two precision ground linear guide rods and two linear guide rod bearings, giving the Nexus Press a very smooth and consistent feel. Every Nexus Press is built to last; we use pre-hardened steels, which are then salt bath nitrided, increasing their strength, lubricity, and corrosion resistance.  We also use high-strength aluminum that is Type III hard coat anodized.  So, if you are tired of inconsistencies with your sizing or seating dies or having to modify your dies to get enough sizing, the Nexus Press is the fix you are looking for! Like all Short Action Customs products, the Nexus Press has a 100% lifetime guarantee.

    They’ve done it again! This press is the most wonderfully machined and designed product I own. I just got done setting it up so I cannot comment on how it functions, but there is NO doubt in my mind that it will perform flawlessly like the dozens of other products I have acquired from Short Action Customs. Do not even waste your time shopping around for another brand if SAC makes what you are looking for. By the way, they are also the top tier in chambering barrels and bedding stocks also. I have had many barrels chambered by them and my F-Class stock bedded and the work is superb! You can call me a FANBOY if you want, but I have been an electrical contractor my whole life and know that your tools and equipment MUST be the best, dependable tools you can buy. SAC is that kind of company. A couple bucks more for the best is a no brainer. Thanks again SAC and Mark Gordon for releasing another superb product!!!!

    Time to dive back into reloading after a brief hiatus from the press!

    Let me tell you, Short Action Customs, LLC has truly outdone themselves with their latest creation, the Nexus Press. I just got my hands on it today, and it’s an absolute masterpiece – solid, yet smooth, surpassing any other press I’ve worked with. While I haven’t started using it for brass yet, the feel alone is remarkable. Every machined detail is impeccable. This press perfectly complements the precision I’ve come to expect from SAC sizing and seating dies. Hats off to SAC for a job well done!

    I’m confident everyone will soon declare this their go-to press with the same enthusiasm I have!

    This is a follow up to my first review. As expected, this Nexus press lives up to it’s specifications. I sized 100 pieces of 6BR and my target was 1.685. 95 of them were 1.685 and the other 5 were withing .005. I don’t think you can get any better than that. Of course I anneal after every firing and use a SAC Modular Sizing Die with expander mandrel. I use to use a LEE APP press for de-capping and that was always screwing up. Using the Nexus to de-cap was a joy using the non cam-over pucks.Smooth as silk and an engineers/machinists envy. Pay once, cry once. Get it over and never look back!

    This is a very well made device. It was easier to set up my dies than with other presses I have used and less effort is needed when sizing cases. The cam over feature makes it easy to get consistent shoulder bump.

    The Nexus press was easy to set up. Mounting was effortless with the supplied sticker template. After a weekend of shooting, I finally have some brass to size. Sizing 50 pieces of 6.5 creedmoor, I had a variance of .0005. This press and the engineering that went into it is insane. Having the option of cam over or hard stop is a super nice touch. 10/10
