    I saw a thread here relating ways to do this. I think you stick it in your trailer hitch then jump on it.
    Can anyone point me to the thread?
    Thanks,

    Hmm, Bob223 did a nice job on his, maybe try searching for his threads or PM him for details.

    I stuck a Dillon Handle in the trailer hitch of my DBL Cab Tundra. Lifted a wheel off the ground just to get a little bend. I wouldn't try jumping. You will probably hurt yourself.

    Heating the handle up until its orange at the bend point with a torch (oxy/acetylene is best) will bend it no problem. Of course heating it will ruin any finish that was on the handle.

    Unless the Red Match's perfectly, I would rather have it in black. I doubt it's a perfect match. That is very hard to do unless Hornady is using a stock off the shelf product others can buy.

    You can get stickers -- hearts, flowers, doggies, kitties, balloons, etc. -- at Walmart or the craft store to decorate your press levers and press.
