Reloading Press with Most Leverage

Howdy folks.

I've been using an RCBS Jr for about 50 years.

I have been noticing extra strain/effort necessary for resizing abused magnum cases.

I also have an application that I don't think the Jr. is up to.

What should I get that gives the most leverage and is super robust out side of one of the 50 BMG presses?

Thanks in advance.

    I use the Rockchucker press and like it. Works great for me with the Lapuas and big RUMs.

    Recently, while talking to Bob Cauterucio he mentioned that he has 18 Rockchucker presses modified for bullet making. Given the tangent your inventive mind has been on lately with this bullet thing I thought you might find this interesting.

    Yur spot on..........
    I'm that apparent, eh? Hey, there ain't nothin' wrong with being transparent around this camp fire........

    Unbeknownst to me the die that Dave sent is a Type-R which fits in a standard reloading press which turns out to be quite fortunite for total cost and schedule wise.

    Unless I scale up to creating bullets from the component level rather than customizing existing bullets, I won't need the pricey Corbin S press (which I think would be sweet to have any way)

    I figured that the Rockchucker would be the choice. Your input increases the confidence level.

    I should be up and running shortly, by early March.........

    The first run will be to get things set up and adjusted. Phase two will be to add a John Whidden's Bullet Pointing Die System (Bold is unintentional - it came over that way from Sinclair)

    Thanks for the feedback!!

    Dave has the S press on hand but I'm going the typical old fart cheap, well less expensive route, then move up if I have to.

    Plus I've got the hankerin' for another custom LR Harvester......

    Thanks for the info.

    Roy,
    Wonder if the RCBS Ammomaster would do the trick for you.
