I don't know the specifics of both but either should do fine. I had a great experience with RCBS customer service last week if that helps.

It would really help to comment if we knew what your requirements were???
Calibers, number of rounds a month, types of loads (target, match, hunting)
All these factors really make a difference.

I just acquired a Remington 700 SPS Tactical rifle in 308 WIN
with a 20" heavy barrel. Results with Remington 150 gr FMJ's
@ 100 yards were good but not spectacular (more info here):

I would like to make between 100-200 rounds a month for target/ match shooting.

I wanted to get Dillon 550B, but after doing some research,
it is my understanding that single stage reloading presses are more suitable
for rifle accuracy reloading.

MidwayUSA has both kits (RCBS Rock Chucker or Hornady Lock-N-Load)
for about $310. Or should I still get Dillon 550B? :dunno:

Nothing wrong with either choice but if my main focus was wringing out extreme accuracy, I'd snag a Forster Co-Axial and never look back.

I don't believe the accuracy will be affected one bit by your choice of press.

This website contains alot of tips on wringing out accuracy as well as his digital headspace gauge. There are so many factors involved that it is a never ending quest.

My daughter sent me this article on snipers from, of all places, Vanity Fair magazine.
Enjoy!

If you want a single stage press I would get the Co-Ax. Using Redding competition dies.
As far as a Dillon 550 not producing accurate rounds. Tell that too David Tubbs.
I also would not buy a press in a kit form.
Take a look here and get some ideas.

But between the two pressesís that you are looking at. I would go with the RCBS. If you like the Hornady because of the LNL feature? You can put that no the Rock Chucker Press.

Both are nice and will accomplish your goals but if your budget permits a 550 I suggest you look at the Co-Ax as well.

Both are good and will handle what you need. If the budget allows, lood at a Forester Co-ax. Accuracy is going to depend on more than the press.

It's hard to make good ammo with a bad press; but a good/excellent press doesn't make good ammo by itself. When it's all said and done, the press itself might be as smaller percentage of the formula than you would think.

Thank you all. I decided to go with Dillon 550B.
Just ordered one from Brian Enos.
Thanks again.:wavey:

Kits are similiar. Main difference is the beam scale vs digital and the presses. For rifle (being a total rifle noob) I would be inclinded to the digital scale. Easier to trickle into. Both presses are going to serve you well. I can't BELIEVE no one has mentioned the Hornady comes with the free bullet offer. 500 free bullets.
