I use the old style Lee auto prime. Got my unit in 96 and still use it. Basic, consistant easy never a problem.

I second K&M (indicated model)
I set my primers to particular crush value, which is impossible by 'feel'.

Primer tubes are less of a PITA to load & WAY easier to swap calibers/primer size.

I use the same thing and love it!!

Until you get carpel tunnel or other "wrist / hand" malfunctions! Then your lucky to get a box of 38 Specials primed

Re: What priming tools...

I have been using the Sinclair priming tool for about a year now. It is slow as each primer must be set into it by hand and I am always washing my hands before I use it. But I really like it, I can feel the primer slide into the pocket, not the old slam bam on the big reloading press. I would certainly buy it again. Sinclair has some nice tools.
