Default what' s the difference except price

I was looking at ebay and right now there are a few deals going on RCBS JR. and Special presses I know the rock chucker is the top of the line and have some bookmarked, but most of them have been going for almost what you' d pay for a new one. Which one' s should I keep an eye on after the Rock Chucker ?

Do it right the first time and buy the rockchucker. That way you only have to buy a press once in your lifetime.

I agree with Vapodog, go ahead and get the Rockchucker, it will last you a lifetime. For the little bit of price difference between the Rockchucker and the others, it is well worth the extra cash.

If your buying on Ebay and want a deal you have to be patient , I got a rockchucker that was like new for just under $60 with shipping . It took about two months but I wasn' t in a hurry . The JR will also do a good job its just not as heavy built as the rockchucker. I used one for years and never had any problems with the ammo it will load .

He' s right, of course. However, I bought an RCBS Jr. press in 1968, and, although it has chips and nicks in the finish, it works as good as when new. It does not have the leverage advantage of the bigger presses, but is OK if all you are doing is FL resizing of cases and seating bullets!
