Features: 1. Directions and pictures provided in press manual are not detailed enough for a new-to-hobby person to set up reasonably easily. 2. Manufacturing problems: (a) Ram is off-center about 5 degrees, preventing primers from sliding into the ram. (See Pictures 1,2,3)(b) Shellholder receiver won't accept shellholders (including RCBS) without removing the shellholder receiver spring. (See Pictures 4,5,6)
Customer Service: RCBS was a bit slow. 2. (a) After a couple weeks of back and forth emails, RCBS shipped me a ram assembly. I appreciate RCBS standing behind their warranty. The ram was installed. The primer slide function works. 2. (b) The shell-holder receiver still doesn't work without taking the receiver spring out, inserting the shell holder, and then placing the spring back in.
When I got this turret, the ram and primer flap were turned around backwards with the primer flap hanging out of the ram. Not only did tech support walk me through turning it around (extremely easy process), but they put in an order for all the parts I was about to work with JUST IN CASE I happened to break something during the process. When you buy a press from RCBS, you're buying a press for life. Not only are they designed to last seemingly forever, they have a lifetime warranty.
EDIT: I wish I could stop there and give a glowing review. I can't. I had to return it. I noticed primers were ending up crooked, some sideways, some upside down and having to fight with some for 5-10 seconds to get them seated. I tried the primer arm without a case in it and found it was actually rubbing against the right side of the shell holder. I contacted RCBS. They told me they thought it was the primer assembly and would send one out the next day. The next week I contacted them again after having not received it. They told me it hadn't shipped, but WOULD the next day. I told them not to worry about it. I sent it back and got a Redding T7. I think it was most likely the ram bent and not the primer arm...either way, too much wrong on a new press.
It's perfect for what I wanted a turret press for, reloading moderate volumes of pistol calibers, being able to set up and leave the dies in the turret head and ease of changeover of additional turret heads. Bonus to me was I was pleasantly surprised by the priming system. The press is "light" enough for me to mount on my portable reloading stand, yet still "beefy" enough. For those interested here is the portable stand I use. [...]
I've already loaded a batch of 45 acp and 44 special on the press. It's so nice to have the dies all set up and you can leave them on the turret. I've already swapped turrets and am setting up my .357 and .44 mag dies now. The turret is held on by a single bolt which was a bit tight from the factory but I got it off fine. Now that it is set up I can comfortably load 100 cartridges/hour. Deprime/size, turn the head, bell on upstroke prime on downstroke, put the powder in, turn the head and seat the bullet.
To me being able to put 2 3-die setups on the turret head was more important than setting up a powder measure on the press... but if one is so inclined I can see where one could have a setup using all of the stations for one caliber. Size/deprime, bell, powder measure, powder check/lockout die, seating die and a separate crimp station.
I still will use my single stage press for my hunting rifle loads and I will still use my progressive press for my high volume pistol loading, but dang this thing fills a nice niche on my reloading bench for calibers that I shoot a moderate number of but would be slow to load via a single stage and not worth setting up the progressive for.
