All benchrest shooters seat with a hand primer. There is a good reason for that. You can feel the primer going in and bottoming out. You can accuracy by seating to deep or not enough. Matt

I fitted an adjustable scew to my rcbs seater, now I can only seat to a certain depth and be more consistant. I tapped a hole through the handle and fitted the screw which pushes againts the body.

Are you talking about an RCBS hand primer? The hand primer i had if you took out the piece you put the primer in; it would screw farther in or out and control depth. It is threaded in between the spring and end.
