I've been looking at getting one of the auto progressive (rifle & pistol) reloaders. I have my choices down to RCBS or Hornady.

    Auto progressive is very luring, however if you really like to tweak and make your own cartridges like I do, I prefer the RCBS 9356 - ROCK CHUCKER SUPREME PRESS hands down over the rest!

    I can do more with my single stage RCBS Rock Chucker than any other presses except the 50BMG! t&langId=en_US&action=ProductDisplay&screenlabel=i ndex&productId=2842&route=C04J146

    Nothing pisses off Civilians more at a NRA High Power Match when an Active Duty Air Force Maintenance NCO (NON-COMBAT) walks up to the firing and cleans there clock with a ½ way worn out M1 Garand and Ultra Match M1A both with open sights shooting his own ammo!

    There’s something special in those Hornady Match bullets that I find superior over the Berger’s and Sierras!

    You can put allot of “TLC” in a cartridge using a single stage!

      I've been using a single stage RCBS Rockchucker for about 40 years and it has done everything I needed. A couple of years ago, I finally wore out the dead primer catcher (plastic). I called them and they sent me a new one with a smile. They are guaranteed for life. I'm with Clay on the fact that I can finese loads more with a single stage... If I were loading a lot of highly accurate rifle loads, I would save the extra money for an electronic powder measure (RCBS) to speed the process. If you are loading tons of pistol ammo, then the progressive is worth it. I just don't like to throw rifle loads with a volumetric measure... they are not accurate enough with most extruded cylindrical powders.

                My greatest fear is that Trump would run for president again in 2024 and lose again, giving us four more years of Democratic rule.
