Personally, I have a Lee Cast single stage. A serious piece of kit. It will even change out to use 50BMG dies, the big ones. I can't imagine any forming job it couldn't do.
I had the impression that the Lee stuff wasn't nearly as strong since its aluminum right?
Ahh I didn't realize that, guess ive never seen one up close. I have a loadmaster and it is a cast aluminum frame so i just kinda made an assumption.
I do have an extra rs series press laying around (rs-2) for swaging bullets. I've sold all my 7/8-14 swaging dies off except for the .224" dies. Don't need a 2nd press anymore.
PM me if your interested in it. I'll be selling it for what I have in it. (cheap + shipping)
I use an old Rockchucker, and it can definitely handle it...that's what I form my brass with. I can't speak highly enough of the inline fabrication mount for it either, definitely the way to go for what you want to do. I've got the table anchored to the floor and the wall so it doesn't move at all.
I use them to reform 223 into 7.62x25.
No problems, no undue pressure, all identical after reforming
you could get a Corbin if you want a beast. And make jacketed bullets too.
I really want a Rebel.......I just don't need one.....the Rock Chucker 2 I bought many years ago will never die......somebody help me with a good excuse to add one more press to add to my green line and Lee APP complimenting them.
Pro 2000, Pro Chucker 7, Rock Chucker II, Lee APP already, so it's a little crowded.....I need to remodel my space.....
OP.......any cast iron O press will do your bidding.....but I do like the looks of that heavy duty Rebel.....clean, simple, heavy and a large wide open mouth.
Hard to beat a RockChucer.
