    do ammo presses work on all reloads depending on the dies?

  • #2

    There is different presses and what they can do. I prefer the RCBS Rock Chucker simply because I shoot both competition and hunting and it covers all my handgun and rifles. Also I make my own brass for 338 Win Mag and 25-06 and the heavy duty of it really makes it a pleasure to use.

      Most presses will handle just about anything. However, I've heard that you need an extra large press for the Browning 50 cal ammo.

        jer4570, most presses will do, but I think as Del said, I do believe you may need a tad bigger press for the 50bmg.

          The above is true but I would like to add that if you are into volume shooting you might consider a Dillon or one of RCBS's high end presses. They do cost a lot more as do the various attachments to switch from one cartridge to another which is worth it to some people. Like Clay I am very content with the Rock Chucker mainly because I closely examine each round that I create by feel and by visual inspection. I can carefully observe each step of the various procedures required to turn out quality reloads. I utilize this press for everything from .17 Rem to .470 NE. I have worn out one of them over the years and am in the process of doing the same to my second one. I do recommend the compound leverage model of whatever brand you select, costs a few bucks more but you will never regret spending it. I bet a good press would last the average shooter a lifetime.

            I have an RCBS turret press which speeds up the old rock chucker considerably. I also have a Lee and its a piece of junk, you will have to get another press for the 50 BMG but RCBS has you covered on that one too. I've got that one but haven't set it up yet because it cost a butt load to reload the 50.

              As the guys have said most equipment will interchange. I have an old RCBS Rockchucker that will handle anything except anti-aircraft rounds!
