How do you feed it?


I have one of these but prefer the RCBS hand held.

I was somewhere last week and saw a hand primer by Hornady that looked like the old round Lee tool.
Did the buy the rights to the design?
Anyone know?

I started using the press tool but went to the Lee hand prime tool.

Now i use the RCBS bench tool and find it faster and seems to have a good feel when seating primers.

RCBS bench top

fast & effective

Best $100 you'll spend on reloading tools

That's the way I'm leaning.

Count me as another vote for the RCBS bench tool. Mine's 25 or so years old too with no problems ever. Sometimes the last one or two primers in the tube dont end up in the cup right, but it's always when I'm hurrying.


The old Dutchman once told me that fate watches over fools, drunks, & handloaders. Since getting on the internet, I'm pretty sure he was right.

I have found that when primers don’t seem to fit in the cup right, that the plunger has loosened a little. Every once in awhile I will pull the shroud down and tighten the plunger. I keep a large head decapping pin handy or a small Allen wrench which fits the hole in the plunger. Give it a little tweak and all is well.

Thanks Swifty, Just checked the plunger for looseness. It was still tight. I'm pretty sure it's the loose screw behind the lever. The offending primers stand on their sides or just fail to feed when I'm moving too fast. It's a hobby... a pastime. If I go slow but steady it works flawlessly.

I use an old Lee AutoPrime. It’s a great priming tool, but it’s a bit dangerous too! I will never change unless I run out of parts. They stopped making them long ago.

Does the automatic primer feed on a Dillon 650 qualify as a priming tool? I just it "just for priming" sometimes. Great feel and speed.
