    Does anyone make an aftermarket ram extension for an RCBS Rockchuker Press? I want to load some handgun calibers and shorten the throw on the handle. RCBS makes extended shell holders, special order and expensive. Looking for a ram extension so I can use my standard shell holders.

    My thinking is that a ram extension would cost just about as much as an extended shellholder. Additionally, one might make the ram's upward travel too much to be compensated for by the die's threads. I have a Rockchucker IV, which is the larger one with a four-inch opening to make seating bullets in really long cases like those of my son's 7mm STW and my 300 RUM easier. What we do when loading shorter rifle cases like the .223 and 22-250 is just not lower the ram the whole way.
