Thanks a lot all I need is a powder throw. I checked my scale with a 55 grain projectile and its dead eye d!ck every time.

I got the RCBS powder throw with my kit, it works ok but I am not thrilled with it. I wish I would have bought everything seperate and spent probably a little more but got the components I really liked. My buddy has the Hornady powder throw and it has a much better feel to it. I didn't notice a hand prime tool there, these are very handy and a good way to prime without really handling the primers with your hands too much, my kit came with the RCBS one and it works ok, stay away from the Lee handprime tool as it requires it's own special shellholders rather than using the same shellholders as all the presses use.

There's actually a primer on the press with a tube. It seems like it will be a little awkward to get used to but I think once I get it down ill be A-OK

Ya I saw that on there, that should work pretty good, my buddy has the old Rock Chucker and it had a setup like that with the tube, though he still used the hand prime tool a lot as well, my Rock Chucker Supreme which is the replacement for his press only has a small arm which you would have to individually set each primer on, it's a pain in the a$$ so I use the hand prime, also the hand prime allows you to sit on the couch and watch tv while priming rather than being tied to the bench, just something extra that's nice to have but not really a necessity.

Trust me, get the lee hand primer tool. It is awesome! Once you get it, you'll never want to use the one built into the press.

Yea I have all the original manuals which is pretty cool IMO. It's good to know that you can load -06 on it that's the biggest ill be loading for a while to come.
