L-N-L Conversion

Tried it but, it just didn't work for me.
I went to Sears and bought a 3/4inch ratched and an adapter to convert it to 1/2 inch [Over $20]. Took it home and removed the "heli-core". It is a bitch to adjust theose MANY seater dies for L-N-L adaptors. I use many cakibers on my Rock Chucker press so it did not pay for me to use it.

It is fabulous. I load for my AR's with the RCBS competition die set and changing dies takes about one second. Definately worth the money and a great time saver, not to mention the problems with screwing dies in and out.

I think it's the best thing to ever happen to my Rockchucker. If you go to Midway and read the only review there for the L-N-L conversion kit, you'll see my thoughts on it.

I think it's a true improvement.
