    im loading 240 matchkings in my .30-378 and
    my rock chucker press is just too short.
    what kind of presses would work better?
    i was thinking about getting a .50 bmg
    press but im not sure in they make inserts
    so one could use standard size dies in them? [​IMG]

    I hear the Redding Ultra Mag press is top notch.

    Hello

    I don't understand why you say the Rockchucker is too short to load the 30/378 Weatherby?

    I load the 338/416 IMP (300 Gr Sierra MK in the 338 and 240 Mk in the 30/378) and the 30/378 Weatherby in my Rockchucker. I had the big ammomaster that would load the 50 cal and it also had the insert for standard dies also.
    I sold it. To big and didn't need it for my big 338 and big 30s.

    ?????????????????????????
