Rockchucker too little.??

.. Hey guys.. Just got back from LDC/annual club fish fry with the .300 Tommy.. A new issue arose this trip.. Last time out all I had was a 300 Win. shellholder to use.. I know it's not the right one but it's all I had at the time and it worked OK.. Anyhow, This time I was equipped with the #38 RCBS shellholders.. Problem being that when I use the seater I can't get the loaded case out of the press.. I have to unscrew the seater a good bit to get enough clearance.. What's up.?? Am I doing something doofus.?? Thanks.. d:^) JiNC

..Crap.. I was under the impression that this Tommy would work with "normal" gear.. So much for the "economic" facet of this deal.. Hehehe.. Does the "new" press happen to fit on the same footprint as the "old" press.??

BTW.. Congrats on the long shots..!! d:^) JiNC

umm..nope not really .. but it is a whole lot better enginered.. same distance traveled by the lever but a longer stroke on the actual press. I think you can find one for around $99 .. that what I gave for it. I had that Rock Chucker for 15 years I think.. almost hated to give it up but I like the new one just as much.

Re: Rockchucker too little.??

I load the Tomahawk and the 338/416 Imp with a Rockchucker press.
Whats the problem again?????

When the bullets are seated in the die, they come out of the press just fine for me.

I have a fairly new and an older Rockchucker?

You guys have me perplexed. Of course, I'm like that a lot these days. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

DC,

My standard RCBS Rockchucker was waaayyyy to small for the 300 RUM after you seated a bullet.

I purchased the RCBS RC supreme Press.. Really nice! $99.99 from Cabelas and Midway.

Jake here's a link....
