Re: RCBS presses

Sounds like a good price. Bought a RCBS rock chucker back in the mid to late 70's. We load for 9 different rifle calibers and for 3 pistol calibers.
It still loads good ammo as far as I can tell. Every thing is still tight on it and produces good reloads. I was looking at an upgrade for this press a while back and could not really see a reason to do so. Hell I'm beginning to wonder if this press is going to last longer than me. Good luck on your new press.

Re: RCBS presses

I've seen old presses that were rusted, I've seen old presses that were worn sloppy due to a lack of oil. But I ain't never seen a press of any color that was 'worn out' from use, only neglect. Meaning they ALL will last longer than we will if we use them correctly and give 'em a modest amount of care.

+1

Lifetime investment if you actually try to take care of it. My press is 6 or 7 years old; my Dad's is 30+ --probably closer to 40. They are both standard rockchuckers. You couldn't tell one from another ammo wise. Tear 'em down when they feel even a bit gritty and clean/grease them, and that's it.

$140 for a good press isn't a bad deal at all at today's prices.

"And your point is..???? "

Well, I didn't think it would be that obscure but my point is RCBS presses are not unique nor do they last any longer than others.

I have two 18 year old Lee presses in great shape. I have a 22 year old Rock Chucker in great shspe. I have a 47 year old Lyman in great shape. I have a 49 year old Herter's press in great shape. I Keep my presses cleaned and lightly oiled and they last, I don't need poorly informed web hype to tell me about how long presses will last. Does that help?
