Just got off the phone with Dad. I was needing help spending my gift card at Cabelas. I asked him what i might need to add to my reloading bench. He suggested the RCBS powerstation. I read the reviews on Cabelas web site. I thought i would see iffin any of you all had this and your opinions. Also wonderin if I reload enough to make it worth while??

Don't know how necessary it might be but it is a neat tool.

If you're loading a BUNCH of ammo, say, for a PD shooting trip, they are handy as can be. If you're just doing a small batch, not so much. I use mine quite a bit! If I only loaded a couple hundred rounds a year, I wouldn't bother getting one, but if you load more than that, by all means get one, they are as handy as a third hand.

I think Mule's right, trimming is the worst chore going, and a power trimmer is the cat's backside:) The rest of it, chamfering and deburring, isn't too much of a chore, you can do it watching TV or something.

I use my buddy's Dillon trimmer if I have a bunch that need doing, THEN I bring them home and use my Prep Center on 'em. I also loan the Prep Center to my buddy when he needs to do up a bunch. That way, neither of us needs to spend a bunch of money:wave:.

Is that coupon for a single purchase or total. If it is for a single....you're $3.01 short Rick.

I hate it when they use the .99 trick.

Reference my other post, if you're shooting a whole lot, YES, if not, nope.
