    RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme Master Kit?

    I see that Midway has this kit on sale for $247 plus thereís a $25 rebate for a net of $222.
    Thatís a good price isnít it?
    Is this a good way to start out or are the accessories cheap stuff that I will replace anyway? What else would I need besides powder, brass, primers and bullets?

    I've been a Rock Chucker Fan for about three decades. I just bought the Press then added goodies. Handgun to .300Wby Mag. No major issues, just minor spring or primer cup wear. Easy to learn on. Probably some cost saving with the kit as opposed to seperate items. Can't help with current prices just "value" as a great tool.

    Be safe, follow instructons and if possible get up with someone who is proficient reloading and get some hands on education, it helps a lot.

    I was doing a little checking around. If I buy it thru Midway at $247 there's a $25 rebate from RCBS for a net of $222.
    But, if I buy it thru Cabela's at $299, there's a $100 rebate for a net of $199.
    I guess my question is - are these accessories garbage or worth the extra money over buying just the Rock Chucker Supreme press for $112 plus a $25 rebate for a net of $87 ?
    Can I do better with that $112 difference ?

    Great deal IMO. Just the press and powder measure alone are over $200. Add a case cleaner and an Impact Bullet Puller and you're golden

    The only RCBS item I ever bought that I didn't like was the powder trickler. I found it was slower then just tapping lightly on the scoop to bring charge weight up slowly when using a scale. If you just going to use scoop measurement/weight you don't need it at all. If someone has a med issue with shaking hands it might steady the powder drop.

    I never bought a stand alone primer seating tool, Press did the job fine. Personal preference choice.

    pretty good deal. the only thing I see that I wouldn't use is the lube pad...there are far better ways to lube cases. I do like hand priming as opposed to press priming unless it is on the Dillon and the kit has a hand primer. There are a few things you may need that aren't there depending on what you are going to load. There are some aftermarket items that may make the RCBS more user friendly. The spent primer collection..blows IMO. The Redding presses are a little more friendly in that area. The powder drop probably could use the $7.00 baffle...probably doesn't come with it. Don't know if the drop comes with both drums...but that might nice to have if you are loading pistol and rifle. A VLD case mouth reamer and some of the other tools that you use with the handle might come in handy....primer pocket reamer..then the Lyman tool ( https://www.midwayusa.com/product/13...rep-multi-tool ) comes with all of it and it isn't expensive either and it all stores inside. Your going to need something to clean cases too.
