    Fella's;

    I found, and bought, for five whole U.S. dollars, an original RCBS aluminum primer catcher tray. I don't know how old it is, but it fits my rockchucker just fine, thankewveddymuch. It even has the RCBS cast into it. It was just too cool to pass up.

    My first reloading press - a Rockchucker bought when I was still a youngster - came with the aluminum tray; bought it from Gander Mountain somewhere around 1971, give or take a year or two. it wasn't long after that the change to plastic trays was made.

    Did it come with the original rubber band used to hold it on the press? :neener:

    I passed one of those up at a gun shop for $5 and I am kicking myself for not getting it, every time I dump the primers from that cheesy piece of plastic crapp :banghead:

    I have one.

    Came with a RCBS jr press and a set of .38/.357 dies I picked up for somewhere around $35 a couple of years ago.
