Not long after I wrote this review, and having shared the same concerns over the negative aspects with RCBS, I was contacted by one of their people. Some of the issues with the setup instructions have been acknowledged. A new manual may be included with newer production. They are addressing the lack of QC on factory assembly I expect some new parts soon to address the "slop" issues with the top casting and column fit. After using the press for several hundred more loading sessions I've found this press to produce the STRAIGHTEST sized .308 cases. Straighter than any other press or die system (hand dies) I've used in 40+ years of hand loading. The last 100 sized cases measured LESS than .0005" TIR. That works. I cut the bottom out of the primer catcher cup, added a long piece of vinyl tube to it, and now the primers all fall into a collection can under the bench. This is one fantastic press now. I've raised my rating on all but the setup. It's a little more time consuming ...

I was totally excited when I ordered this press. At last a press that was built like I thought a solid reloading press should be. No "Knee Knocker" under the bench, no primers spread over the floor, and the shell holder is easily accessible and visible. The unit I took out of the box took me half a day to do the work that should have been done in the factory before shipping. Every nut, bolt, and set screw was loose. The machine work itself was beautiful but the center column, where the upper pivot casting is mounted, was undersized. Had to finally shim it in order to stop the flex that was causing the bolts holding it to loosen up during operation. I have the skills and ability to cure this so I won't waste the money sending it back to RCBS. I merely added some shim stock to fill the gap. For those that don't have any shim stock then just clean out the casting with laquer thinner, wipe the mating surface of he column with wax and use some J-B Weld to fill the gap. When ...
