RCBS RC Supreme Master Reloading Kit

Cabela's -- RCBS RC Supreme Master Reloading Kit

For $302 shipped from Cabelas, is this a good kit for a beginner. The stores around me sell the same kit for $350-375 so I figured maybe with the extra $$$ I save from getting it through Cabelas I could get 2 or 3 reloading manuals as well. The kit comes with a Speer reloading guide

Depends on your goals. If you are just reloading, not a bad kit. If you are handloading for precision, maybe not so good.

My first kit was the rockchucker and I bought it in 1962 and I still use it today.

I did buy the newer/bigger rockchucker press for the longer magnum cartridges
and use the 47 year old for standard cartridges and pistols.

You cant go wrong with the RCBS.

Just my opinion.

Re: Have the chance to pick up a

The following thread addresses the same question as you have:

looking to start reloading, how is the rcbs reloading starters kit

I'm not encouraged about the quality of the new RCBS press. We're seeing evidence of a poorly fitted ram, and that's not good. The press is being made in China, and that alone turns many people off.

As you will see, I recommend against a kit, simply because I believe that you can do better (not cheaper) by picking your own pieces. It takes more effort, but it also better prepares you for reloading, both knowledge-wise and equipment-wise.

Searches on these forums will get you lot of information. Be thorough.
