Reloading 50 BMG

How much ram throw is required? Can a Rockchucker or a Redding T7 load 50BMG?

The RCBS 50 BMG press has 6 3/4" of ram stroke while the shortest press stroke is Lee's 50 BMG press with 4" of ram travel. RockChucker won't work. You also have to know the press die thread size and find a 50 bmg die to fit it.

The Lee press is just the classic cast press with the thread insert removed.
