Re: Loading presses ?

The RCBS Rockchucker is very popular , for a good reason
The Hornady Press has the LNL feature which makes caliber changes fast and Hornady has customer service second to NONE!

Re: Loading presses ?

Hornady Lock-n-Load single stage. Absolutely love it. Quick, simple, & red... It matches my Jeep, & my pickup parked next to it in the garage
I'd take an RCBS, & put the L-N-L quick change bushing conversion on it.
Id take a Redding, or Dillon, or Forster too. I'm not too picky as long as its a QUALITY press.

Someday ill have a turret press for pistol ammo, & a shotgun press to go along with my L-N-L.... Someday.

Re: Loading presses ?

Living in australia, i purchased an O frame made locally by an australian company called Simplex. I have had it for 32 years and it will no doubt out last me.
It has a very heavy cast iron frame with thick steel linkages and a .8 hollow ram. Its a heavier duty version of the Rockchucker.

Re: Loading presses ?

for single stage loading ive got a rcbs rockchucker and a hornady lnl. I probably use the lock and load more because i like the lnl feature. it makes easy work out of swapping dies. the rcbs seams a bit stouter and has a bit more leverage. I just bought a lnl bushing to convert the rcbs to lock and load too but havent got around to sticking it in the press yet. My first single stage press was a lyman orange crusher. I lost that one in a fire. Its a good press too.

I have a cheap Lee, a Rockchucker, and a RCBS Partner. The Partner is my favorite. It is compact, a single stage and I have it set up to take to the range.
