    Which press do you already have? for rifle ammunition the Lee Cast Breech Lock is excellent value for money.

    I brought an RCBS Rock Chucker Pro back from the US last year (very cheap!) and the only thing it gets used for is de-priming and full length sizing cases.

    Nothing wrong with doing it on my Lee breech lock but I've fitted a case ejection system onto the RCBS which really speeds things up when you're doing a lot of cases.

    Depends what you want it for. I have a Lyman Crusher II press that is ideally suited to the longer cases like .30-06 where a Lee Turret Press is not quite tall enough when bullet seating. For rifle cartridges the Lyman is excellent. For pistol brass that requires more batch quantities I could do with a Dillon progressive, the Lyman makes them perfectly but it is a slower process. I would not use a progressive press for rifle cartridges though.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    In essence im looking for another press to do the bullet seating or sizing. Will use the lee for one and the new on for the othet. The rock chuckers have a good rep, but wondered about the other options too.

    Will get some competition dies as well for the 308...
