    Looks like clear Tygon tubing and an 8 gal waste basket to me.
    What am I missing???

    My Rockchucker has a black primer catcher that looks nothing like this green one......and it only "sorta" works. Maybe this is what comes with a new loader now?

    Forgot to post the maker.
    It's Elite 3d Design, out of Greeley Co. $16 with free shipping.
    Guys name is Daniel Porter.
    They make a couple of different ones, depending on the press you have.
    I got mine in about a week after ordering.

    OEM catcher is rather lame,,, I bought one of the 3D-printed versions off Ebay years ago, very similar to what's pictured above. Worked great, but,,,

    If you have a Rockchucker Supreme and plan on getting a case ejector system from Inline Fabrication, you may need this: https://inlinefabrication.com/collections/rcbs/products/3d-printed-improved-primer-catch-for-rcbs-rockchucker-supreme

    The spent primer discharge on the I. F. catcher is offset towards the rear just a bit to provide clearance for the case ejector system. My Ebay catcher's discharge came out straight,,, Not enough room to use it and the ejector at the same time. :(

    UPDATE: From the Elite 3D website:
    • This catcher is not meant to work with any other modifications. We do have a version that will work with the Inline Fabrication case kicker. If you desire that version, please make a note of that catcher at checkout.

    Might do. I wonder if he thought about it but it didn't work out.

    My factory one works fine when the primers don't fall out the back hole in the ram because of gunk collecting on the slope toward the catcher. Except my CCI LR. For some reason they just seem to go all over the place, cup and anvil separated. My Star 45-70 brass pockets aren't even especially tight but they seem to pop out like a toy cork gun, lol.

    I have a RCBS Rockchucker II and bought a primer catch system that mounts to the two screws at the top forward edge of the Press. The primer catch system kind of worked and had a plastic piece that went into the primer slot on the ram and was held in place by magnets. The magnets would get dirty and slip down and the spent primer would either fall on the floor or get caught and in that case. I would have to take the piece apart and clean the magnets and the slot. I ended up making one out of Aluminum and drilled the ram and taped it for a set screw. It never misses a beat and with my clear tubing mounted and put into a coffee can mounted under my reload bench, I hear every spent primer hit inside the can. I also have a RCBS Rockchucker 4 but it doesn't have the same forward area. I bought the II at a garage sale for $25.00 and I know I got a good deal and it is the one I use all the time. I bought the Rockchucker 4 complete kit in 2013 from Natchez for less than $300.00 with everything you need for reloading, even a Speer manual #14. I have since purchased many dies and tools for reloading the many calibers that I have.

    Got the same kit from my LGS for just a little under 3 bills a couple of years ago.

    I can't believe they don't hit you up for additional shipping, it's a great deal.

    You need to run that output tube into a plastic coke bottle mounted in a marine cupholder. It's what all the cool kids do.

    I've considered one of these but truthfully I only have maybe 1 out of 100 primers that mis the original catcher.

    FWIW, I just ordered one of the regular (not 'cool' LOL!) catchers for my RC Supreme. Why? My Ebay version doesn't work with my case kicker and The I.L. Fabrication version uses a 'hard to get to with the kicker in place' screw to secure it to the press. (PITA)
    When ordering online, there is no place on the website to specify 'the version that works with the I.L. Kicker'
    I used the chat feature, and then followed up with a 'need this version' reply to my order confirmation email.
    Vendor replied promptly both in chat and to my reply email. :thumbup:

    That is some hotness right there, very cool with the little drawer. Sadly, I'd fill that in about 4 minutes or so. If somebody made one that was about 5X bigger, I'd replace my coke bottle for sure.
