    question

    has anyone had experience with one of these,

    I realize it's not ideal or efficient, but I'd like to put one away with powder, primers and projectiles like this package and a bag of cleaned brass as it doesn't require PAL to have or store, can be anywhere inside, just to have

    I haven't used one much, but it takes a good bit of oomph to size a 30-06.
    Holding the press, setting a charged case in the shellholder, not spilling the powder, setting a bullet in the casemouth and then working the handle to seat the bullet requires about 4 hands.
    Maybe it isn't that bad, it is do-able.
    Using a mounted press is much nicer, but I haven't sold my hand press, just in case, I guess.

    9mm would be fine. I managed to run 300 win mag through mine and my mechanic's hands and forearms were pretty sore after only a few dozen. Not the ideal tool, but it could get you our of a jam someday.

    I seem to recall a guy using a mallet to resize large rifle brass in one....

    The Lee dippers aren’t bad for basic reloading, rather than a scale. You just won’t have the ability to fine tune loads, I’ve done a bunch of pistol ammo with them.

    the concept was a single small package containing all needed that can be stored without needing a PAL

    l would go with this one. It is away more user friendly. Trying to seat a bullet in a short case full of powder?

    I forgot about the C-frame....

    The standard Lee O-frame presses can be found on sale pretty cheaply too.

    Why not just make up some rounds and put those away? They don't go bad with time.
