Hello all,

I am thinking about making the foray into reloading. As I was pricing out a RCBS Pro2000 press I noticed that I could buy the press or a deluxe kit with added items. I was using the Natchez Shooting Supply web sight to give me an idea of the cost I would be looking at. That’s when I noticed something a bit odd . . .

RCBS Pro 2000 Deluxe Reloading Kit, part # 88880, $675.61

or

RCBS Pro 2000 Press, part # 88875, ($381.04)

RCBS Trim Pro manual case trimmer kit, part # 90355, ($69.95)

RCBS RangeMaster 750 electronic scale, part # 98927, ($89.95)

RCBS stainless steel dial calipers, part # 87305, ($36.95)

RCBS case lube kit, part # 09335, ($14.95)

RCBS deburring tool, part # 09349, ($14.05)

RCBS hex key set, part # 98975, ($6.28)

Speer reloading manual #13, part # 709511, ($16.95) Total: $630.12

It would seem that buying the items separately would be less expensive or am I missing something? Are there other items than the ones listed in the kit that make it a better deal?

I bought my RCBS Pro 2000 from Graf and Son for $299.99
which included shipping. I believe they bought out another distributor of RCBS and they are selling it off. You might find some of the other items you want there also.

Here's the link

Thanks guys,

I thought the powder thrower came with the press. It is hard to find information on these things. I have failed to locate the owners manual on line which is how I usually find out what comes with what.

I will give Grafs a look see . . .

My press came with the uniflow case activated powder thrower. It wasn't an extra item.

Try Midway USA (http://www.midwayusa.com/) . You may find them cheaper.

Opps! Or not.
