...Nuttin wrong with the JR press...
I agree. I searched for a used one and bough one years ago because of the shorter stroke than the "stronger", more sophisticated presses. I figured that inasmuch as the majority of my hand loading was for handguns (higher volume than hand loading for rifle), the shorter, and therefore slightly faster RCBS Jr. made more sense than a larger, longer linkage, as with the "stronger, better", RCBS Rockchucker style of presses. The RCBS Jr. has more than enough mechanical advantage to do all the common duties of hand loading. Anything with more mechanical advantage is just over-kill. It is my choice for anything I need to do or would rather do (bottle-neck rifle loading), on a single-stage rather than my Dillon 550B. If one has a progressive, it is also very handy to have a single-stage press and the RCBS Jr. is ideal in that role.
