I do all my loading on a old Lyman press that is real close to being worn out. So now I am looking for a Rockchucker at a good price. Hopefully I'll find one before my old one gives up. I thought about picking up a Dillon 550 a few years ago but figured that I would stick with what I have. I sat down and figured out that I had loaded over 40k rounds of pistol and rifle rounds on that press.

I have a used one under the bench that the newer RC-II is bolted to. It's old as dirt but still tight. If you wanna do some horse trading for something lemme know.

It's something that becomes just part of what you do. Your feet are already wet. It'll come in time....

Re: Which reloader should I buy

For giggles and chits after you get set up and familiar with whatever recipe you confirm with several book and reference black and white agreeing load don't forget about those 147's, just to see how they group. You never know. Do NOT take my memory as gospel but I believe I remember 19.0gr with a 140 with 4198 was a hot charge for the 140 so start at maybe 18.0 for the 7 grain heavier A-Max and work up. There's absolutely no correlation between 7 grain increase in projectile to reducing the load by a grain, that's just where I'd start and not worry about fingers and eyes. It *is* however a fact that as bullet weight goes up powder charge has to come down. There's no ratio formula or anything tho. Same with comparing CUPs to PSI with pressure, there is no rule to follow because they're comparing apples to oranges

If you ever need data just ask, and I'll definitely verify that 4198/140gr data before you do it. I have 6 go-to references I use between book and computer and never go with just one. Get 6 different charge ranges +/- a little bit among them all and I throw a dart in the middle and that's my start load.

Re: Which reloader should I buy

You just have to remember that 99% of anything that has to do with reloading is measured in grains and not grams

Useless number - there's 7,000 grains in a pound. Handy when you're buying a pound of powder and don't know how many bullets and primers you'll need. So at 25gr of your 4198 charge you'd get 280 charges
