Check out the Lee APP (under $120) if you want case kicking and primer catcher. I use one for batch depriming (among other tasks). I don't bother with the case feeder tubes, etc. I can hand place cases on the carrier almost as fast. Left hand places case on carrier, right hand pulls the handle. Watch one of the video links.

There are two major problems with these catchers. One is the front edge is not high enough to catch the primers when you are more robust in your sizing/decapping energy. The primers tend to leave the case with too much energy to get caught. My solution there is to take a MTM box label inserted in the catcher on the right side ending about the 7 o'clock position as i load and remove cases from the left. a thin piece of cardboard would work as well. This catches the vast majority of primers.

However, the secondary issue is the fit of the catcher to the lower part of the press. Primers like to catch in between the catcher and the press, and when you remove the catcher to empty, they hit the floor. The solution there is to put my hand under that area as I remove the catcher, and I capture the majority at that point. I suppose I could put foam tape on the inside edge of the catcher at that area, but have not.
