Re: RCBS prep center

Been using mine for 6 years, high volume. No issues whatsoever. In fact, I can't live without it.

It makes case prep so much more efficient. Big time saver.

You can bog it down if you try, but I have never done so under normal operation.

I use it for chamfering, flash hole uniforming and pocket reaming, if that helps. It is not underpowered at all for these operations.

Re: RCBS prep center

The only time I've ever bogged mine down was trying to cut too fast when removing crimps from mil-surp brass. And yes my fingers are tired after prepping 5 or 600 cases in one evening, but doing them by hand keeps my fingers tired for two weeks.

My RCBS Prep Center works great. Mine is set up with a Lee trimmer so I can trim on it too. Check out this video.

Re: RCBS prep center

I have had one in regular use for 6 or 7 years and if it dies today I'll have a new one ordered tomorrow.

I uniform/clean primer pockets, debur and chamfer case mouths, remove military crimps, and uniform flash holes with it and I could not be any more pleased.
