I started loading on a 3-station progressive press. Soon after starting my reloading career, I realized I wanted more stations. “Wouldn’t it be great to have separate stations for seating and crimping” I thought to myself. Soon I was loading on a 5-station press. Well, later on I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be great to have separate stations for everything?”.
Here’s an example:
- Powder charging
- Powder checking
- Bullet feed
Well…. there’s a new 7-station reloading press coming to town. This territory used to be almost exclusively owned by the Dillon Super 1050, a professional-quality 7-station press that many competitive shooters swear by (yes, swear by, not swear at ). At the SHOT show this year, RCBS showed a pre-production example of their new press, the “Pro Chucker 7″. With prices speculated way below the Super 1050 pricing, and with a case feeder “under development” many shooters/reloaders are excited about this new piece of gear.

It looks like this press will offer some GREAT features, and I’m looking into getting a unit as soon as they are available! More info as I get it. Are you all excited about this press? Please leave a comment to express your thoughts!
