    I am wondering what your opinions are on the RCBS turret press kit. Please tell me why you like and/or dislike it. Will this be an acceptable press to load a variety of calibers from 9mm to .308 and a host of cartridges in between?

    Are there any recommendations for things I should replace in the kit? I am also looking for recommendations for a case tumbler?

    It is a good kit

    I just recomended the Rock chucker Supreme kit to someone else. It is the same kit with the turret press. There is nothing in this kit that you will need to replace. It is all good equipment. Check out the Lyman turret kit with the trimmer as well. The only thing I don't likein that kit is the powder measure.

    Yeah, what he said.
    The only thing I don't like about the Lyman turret press is the way the press handle bottoms out to limit the up stroke. It puts too much pressure on the casting and it WILL break if too much pressure is applied. I have one in my shop that I was able to repair and now it is as stong as an RCBS.
    Good luck with whatever you get.
