Best primer seating solution available?

What is the best primer seating solution on the market?

I have heard good things about the Sinclair but want some input.

I've use the Lee hand priming tool and would recommend it.

RCBS and others have similar hand tools.

I like the feel of the primer being seated.

Square and uniform has never been a problem.

HTH.

"Best" of anything is somewhat relitive but I believe the Sinclair is probably the best made hand priming tool that's easily available.

The sinclair is a fine piece of work but I feel it does nothing better than my $10.00 lee. I have a lee for every type of primer I use So I don't have to mess with them much. For $30.00 you can buy 3 lees for 3 different primers. I think the sinclair I bought was like $140.00 or something. It was nice but just not worth the cash imo.

Ditto. Plus the Sinclair requires you to load one primer at a time, no tray.

I use the RCBS hand primer (not the one that uses the pre-loaded strips), and have had no problems. You know if you get where it is supposed to be and that its deep enough.

"Best primer seating solution" - buying pre-primed brass, but I never do it.

I'm pretty sure the best is K&M's.
It has a dial indicator and with it you can set every primer to exactly .002 crush, regardless of primer pocket depth variance.

YOU CANNOT DO THIS BY FEEL
