    Pressman replied to a thread rcbs A3 in Vintage Reloading Gear
    They were the last of the A series presses. They were made for about one year, 1968/9. It was determined that the Rockchucker would do everything the A would do at a lower build and shipping cost. The bigger A just was no longer needed. The...

    That's too bad it's all packed away, it would be educational to see your work. Serious, as in hard or heavy effort to size or swage boolits or brass.

    Looks like a well thought out system for a lot of reloaders. Boy, he sure has a rock solid mounting system. I never saw that press shift at all. Thanks for posting that video Castalott. :p

    I use the Franklins. Blue in-color, they each have a really nice chart on the back of each telling you what calibers fit in the different numbered trays. Relatively inexpensive ($7 each on Amazon), they will last forever, and stack neatly. My stack...

    1hole, good questions. The way the JR2 was converted created a weak area for the links. The links need to be supported on both sides and to do this with a conversion is bolt on a side support. Full length resizing a 30-06 has been considered the...

    This is a RCBS JR2 converted to compound linkage. This press was made as a proof of concept. It is not strong enough for serious reloading. Yes, it can be done but the amount of engineering to make a successful press is considerable and totally...
