    If the threads are the same, yes. I have not heard anyone say different. 7/8" - 14 I believe is the thread size. 50 BMG needs a larger threaded receptacle so a different press is needed. Lee presses that have the Breechloader removable inserts may accept the larger size dies. Dillons also are different size.

    yes they will .....HOWEVER

    1. The Lee shell holder will not work in it

    2. Lee presses Do Not Cam Over, the RCBS does, if the die is not set right you could ruin some brass

    Yes they do Mate !

    I have lost all faith in standard RCBS Dies, so I switched to Lee, some 2-3 years back, and use them in conjunction with RCBS "Precision Mic's", and the results have been outstanding.

    Sorry SWO1, but I have no issues with the shell holders. !
    Maybe it's because I work them upside-down.

    (hehehehe)

    I have never had a problem with Lee shell holders in my Rock Chucker press.
