The Pro Chucker Tube Case Feeder installs on the RCBS Pro Chucker 5 or Pro Chucker 7 progressive press, converting it to an automated case feed for both bottleneck and straight wall cases and can increase output by more than 25 percent. The tube case feeder includes a medium feed tube that accommodates 80 percent of the Pro Chucker case fits.
In addition to the medium feed tube, RCBS is also offering new small and large feed tubes to allow users to automatically feed cases for all Pro Chucker shell plate fits. The Pro Chucker Tube Case Feeder will sell at a suggested retail price of $149.95, and the additional feed tubes will sell at a suggested price of $29.95 each. Both will be available in April 2016.
6.5-300 Weatherby and 30 Nosler Die Sets
This two-die set is intended for reloading the 6.5-300 Weatherby and 30 Nosler, and consists of a Full-Length Sizer Die with an Expander-Decapping Unit, and a Seater Die with Bullet Seater Plug.
The Full-Length Sizer Die brings the case to SAAMI minimum cartridge dimensions. It sizes the outside of the case, de-primes and expands the neck to accept the bullet. The die has vents to prevent case damage caused by trapped air and excessive lubricant. Headspace is held to minimum tolerances to avoid changing the case body length during full-length sizing. The included Seater Die has a built-in roll crimper to simultaneously secure and seat the bullet.
Both die sets will be available in January 2016 and will retail at a suggested price of $80.95.
The new M1000 mechanical scale gives users 1,000-grain capacity with +/- 0.1-grain accuracy, plus right or left-handed operation. It offers magnetic damping for fast readings and maintenance-free movement. A metal tip-proof pan makes loading easy, and the scale comes with a limited lifetime warranty. The suggested retail price is $159.95.
Ultrasonic/Rotary Case Cleaning Solution
Designed for use with the RCBS Ultrasonic Case Cleaner, the new Ultrasonic/Rotary Case Cleaning Solution quickly removes tarnish, carbon buildup and metal oxides from cartridge cases.
The specialized formulation cleans brass cases inside and out, including the primer pockets (spent primers must be removed), producing a bright, professional-grade finish. Ultrasonic/Rotary Case Cleaning Solution is non-corrosive and non-combustible, making it safe and easy to use.
One quart of the concentrated solution makes 10 gallons of cleaning mix, and it comes with a built-in measuring cup for use with all brands of ultrasonic cleaners. The Ultrasonic/Rotary Concentrate Solution has anti-tarnish protection and works with rotary style cleaners.
The Ultrasonic/Rotary Case Cleaning Solution will retail at a suggested price of $22.95 and will be available in January 2016.
