problem with press for .30-378

im loading 240 matchkings in my .30-378 and
my rock chucker press is just too short.
what kind of presses would work better?
i was thinking about getting a .50 bmg
press but im not sure in they make inserts
so one could use standard size dies in them? [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

I hear the Redding Ultra Mag press is top notch.

Hello

I don't understand why you say the Rockchucker is too short to load the 30/378 Weatherby?

I load the 338/416 IMP (300 Gr Sierra MK in the 338 and 240 Mk in the 30/378) and the 30/378 Weatherby in my Rockchucker. I had the big ammomaster that would load the 50 cal and it also had the insert for standard dies also.
I sold it. To big and didn't need it for my big 338 and big 30s.

?????????????????????????
