personally I agree with plateshooter. Also the rockchucker is stronger and doesn't have the flex when loading larger caliber rifle cases. I'm also of the mind that someone who is new to reloading needs to get use to the process of reloading, from depriming to seating the bullet. Take your time and learn the steps first. If you get in too big a hurry you can cause yourself some problems,such as stuck case, broken depriming pin, cockeyed seated bullet and so forth. Once you have the process down pat and you find yourself shooting a lot then get yourself a turrent press. Rolling your own one round at a time can be very satisfying and can help you find the most accurate load for your gun. Have fun!
