Re: Lee Reloading Kit

So there are a variety of rcbs presses that arebprett good. Is there any I should stay away from? And I see a lot of variation in ram stroke and all that. How long do I need to be able to load up to something like a 300 ultra mag?

I do 25-06AI's on one like pictured. I see that loaded 300 Ultra's are 3.600 long. Thats a long one but should fit fine
Stay away from the El Cheapo that has stamped metal lower arms.
Any of the Reloader models should do you fine. Compare pics to see the better ones

On second thought...go and buy the Lee junk....

I see a lot of the cheaper ones are JR2's. They look like good quality. What is a good price for somethinG like this, not including shipping? I just don't want to overpay in desperation of needing one.

I agree, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.... and even smashing his gonads won't cause him to inhale......

It's not all junk, their presses are but I use Lee crrimp dies all the time and their pistol dies also work well.

The Rockchucker will handle anything up to a 50BMG in length. Plenty of room for my extended COAL 338 Lapua reloads.

I have a Lee hand press I use at the range for quick NS'ing reloads and it's handy and cheap.

A comment was made that Rockchuckers are aluminum alloy, maybe the brand new ones are but mine is cast iron and heavy and I think it's 5 years old and I use the hellout of it. I have a Dillon too. Dillons are nice and pricey and the issue with a Dillon is their proprietary die holding arrangement, it's Dillon dies or no die....
