The RCBS Rockchucker is a great press. When I started out back in the early 1980's, I bought the RCBS Reloader Special - one step down from the Rockchucker. Though it was a great press for me, I always kicked myself for not spending the extra bucks and getting the Rockchucker.

I also picked up a Dillon turret press a few years later - wonderful press. But I also used the RCBS single press for doing a lot of case prep prior to loading in the Dillon.

The kit is a great way to start, but if money is a bit tight, then I would suggest you start by getting a good press like the Rockchucker and then build from there the other items you need as you can afford them. It may cost you a little more in the long run to do it this way, but you will be less tempted to buy cheaper than what you really want and need.

Mine works fine. It misses a primer now and then, but no biggie.

Do you have the newest Rockchucker with the odd, fandangle triangular shaped catcher that sits behind the ram?

True the plastic primer catches are a bit finikey with these presses but with a little time dinking with them they work just fine enough.

I use the RCBS Charge Master Combo and it gets me consistantly within 1/10th of a grain.

Quoted for the dang truth. They are hands down the most accurate powder measures on the market.

If you are wanting to shoot benchrest. The Harrell is the one you own. RCBS, REDDING, Hornady are good powder measures but they don't hold a candle to a Harrell for accuracy and consistency.

As for a spent primer catcher that would be my floor. I just pop them out and let them fall.
