    So, I just went to prime a piece of 25/06 brass when the press handle went about 15 degrees too far in a quick jump from where it first started seating the primer.

    ::sour feeling in my stomach :shocked:::


    I look down and the handle threads are stripped and the handle comes right out of the press.


    So uh... do I try to shave off the threads, stick it in there and weld it on, or do I try to get rcbs to fix it?


    (I already drank the blue cool-aid, but only use it to load my high volume cartridges)

    Wow, that is great customer service. I've been using a Partner Press for around 20+ years. Loaded everything from handgun rounds to 30-06 and 45/70 on it and it works fine for a small single stage press. IIRC I paid around $25 bucks for it, now I guess they're quite a bit more but mine is still going strong. One thing, I don't use my press to prime cases. I've got an RCBS Handi-Primer that I use. Anyway, glad to hear they're going to take care of ya'.

    RCBS has always been a great company. This is just another example!

    I had a similar response from RCBS regarding a handprimer I broke. They asked my address and that was all they asked. The new one showed up a few days later.

    A friend had an RCBS Partner press and went through two free replacement handles before he replaced it with an RCBS Rock Chucker press.
