What is the difference in the Rock Chucker and the Supreme?  Looking at used ones and plenty of Rock Chuckers around, but not the Supreme.

Do both have the bushings to make die changes easier?

Neither one comes with the Hornady LNL conversion, but both will work with it. Replace the threaded bushing with the LNL adapter, and then put the LNL bushings on your dies.

I am not 100% sure, but I believe that the supreme is the loading package, not just the press. I am not quite sure what that other fella was saying about the Hornady lock-n -load bushings. We are talking about RCBS ,aren't we?

RCBS/

Looking for simple signel stage with the bushings- like the Lee Breech.  Seems this will make changing dies must easier and more acurate.

as was said before,the lock and load from hornaday will work on the green press if fast changes are wanted on a green press and not a red one.

Not to be rude, but it only takes a couple seconds to unscrew the dies to begin with, of course I normally because if time I get to load I'm only able to size and clean one day and powder charge/seat another day, so to me the time saving is minuscule and not worth it.  I have the rock chucker supreme and really like it, and now they have a auto primer feeder for it now too:thumbs:

The RCBS Master Reloading kit came with the scale etc. The newer Supreme press comes with the handle that's reversible for right or left-handed. I don't think there's anything else different?

The priming arm is different than the older RC's I have the RC IV it yses a peice of bar stock wit the priming cup attached works good too.

Apart from the handle being R/L hand compatible (thanks from all us Lefties RCBS) there's lillte if any difference between old & new Rockchuckers.
Neither have quick change bushings as used in the Hornady Lock-N -Load press but both can be fitted with them easily enough.
If you only load a few rounds at a time, then the reduction in time needed to change dies is worth the outlay for the L-N-L inserts.

and then theres the LEE cast turret dies all ready with powder measure installed.

the only reason for the lock n load is because they cant put a turret on those presses.I dont see the sense to the LNL except for that reason. all brands of presses

are good, I just like lee and the turrets.as I have 15.I do have a RCBS rock chucker.I also have Bonanza,Herter,truline jr,and RCBS GReen Machine.so I am aware of the others.:confused::thumbs::shameon:
