    Question. A little while back I bought some reloading stuff basically from an estate sale. A couple boxes were sealed and when I got home and started taking inventory I found a rock Chucker with the progressive attachment on it. The press itself appears to be complete and works smoothly. I think it was called a Piggyback. Anyone have experience with those? Just wondered if it's even worth keeping around.

    Only if enjoy frustration. I had a Piggyback II in the early 90's and I couldn't make 50 rounds without it screwing up. I bought a Dillon and threw it as far as I could. Junk it. Trust me.

    set it up and see if it works. they are just like any press, they work, don't work, or sometimes work. the piggyback is in the later two. i don't know if you can buy a new one anymore. when they were on the open market they were priced high, around $399.99. you can buy a dillon square deal for not much more. at least you know the dillon will work. for sometime i have been looking for a used one to try/play around with/see if i can get it to work. but when i find one they are priced too high for something you know that is going to give you problems.

    Heck no, it's a waste of space.

    Call me and I'll pick it up see that it's recycled.

    Well, it is fairly sturdy steel. Perhaps we should tape a target to it at the range! Maybe set it out at 500 yards with about 20 pounds of tannerite, in the name of science of course.
