    I just got a Hornady L-N-L AP and I have to remount my single stage. It's an old RCBS Jr. At some point, I plan to get a Rockchucker to replace it. Before I drill holes for this JR, I was wondering if anyone can tell me the hole spacing for a Rockchucker. Both have slots for the mounting bolts so I might be able to reuse the same holes.

    Thanks.

    My bolts are 3.575 center to center on my RC with a little room on either side.

    I have had both the Jr and the RC at one time or another. If I remember right, the holes line up. But one of them has three? holes? The other only 2?

    3.575 would be at the outer edges of my JR but should work. Thanks.

    I just upgraded my JR to a Rockchucker a couple of months ago and I had to drill another hole. (this is keeping both in nice an tight)

    Gotta love reloading equipment . . . if you buy used and reload on it for awhile you can pretty much sell it for what you bought it for.

    Have a good one,

    I've had a Junior for 25+ years, and have loaded calibers up to .375H&H Mag. Never felt the need for an upgrade. I have added a Dillon XL650, but I'll be hanging on to Junior for the forseeable (sp?) future. You gonna load .50BMG or something?

    Fluted,

    Which one was that: upgrading, or selling the old one for what you bought it for?!
