Re: rcbs JR 2

The JR presses were good tools for their time but were immediately out moded when the compound toggle press linkages came along to ease the effort for resizing larger cases.

They are still quite useable but I'd restrict them to pistol loading or specialty rifle tasks such as decapping, file trimming, bullet pulling, seating, etc.

Your presses, your choice.

I'd keep 'em if I had room to mount 'em and get a Lee Classic Cast for my main, really strong, press.
