Crap...then I guess there is no point if you will still have to adjust. Ever heard of shimming the bushing to match the spec from the lnl ap press?

You're asking if you can install your dies in the bushing for the Hornady press, then take the die out of the bushing and install it in an RCBS press, correct?

From the Hornady site

Quote:
Simply insert a Hornady bushing into your RCBS® Rock Chucker or other reloading press using a 1-1/4-12 thread, and you’re ready to take advantage of Hornady’s Lock-N-Load technology. It’s the easiest way to get the most out of your competitive reloading press. The Lock-N-Load Conversion Kit includes three die bushings and one conversion bushing.


On the rockchucker there is a black threaded on inside and outside "nut" the 7/8X14 dies screw into. I believe if you remove that your Hornady adaptors will screw into the Rockchucker in its place. Then you can use the Loc-n-load bushings on your dies and keep the setup just like when switching around in a Hornady press. Catch is I bet the dies will need some adjusting when switching presses.

^^This is why I said no.

When dies are set to specs within a thousandth, I don't see them staying set perfectly.

FYI: This is more a economics thing.

Go to Cabelas and buy the Hornady Rockchucker conversion with SIX bushings. They are $19.99. You only buy this kit as it will give you the cheapest bushing cost.

That's what I did a couple of years ago. Like the Rock Chucker much better now.
