Drill vs screwdriver

I have heard when reaming primer pockets or turning necks or any other case prep to use an electric screwdriver not a drill. Is there a reason you don't want to use a drill? Does anyone use a drill?

    The main reason people advise against using a drill is because of the speed the drill is capable of turning. With a drill, it is very easy to overdo things. I do use a drill for uniforming primer pockets, but use it only on low speed and turn it very slowly.

    I've be using a VSR drill for case work for some thirty years. Like anything else, it's not the tool that matters, it how you use it and knowing what you're doing.

    Slower is better. To fast and its easy to get it crooked and make your primer pockets loose.
