I broke the priming tool that came with my Rock Chucker Supreme press so I was in the market for a new tool. I looked up some reviews about the Lee Auto Prime, and the RCBS Hand Priming tool but some of the reviews were kind of shady. But the reviews for the RCBS Ram Priming tool were excellent. I went to my local gun shop and they happened to have one in stock. I brought it home, set it up, and tried a couple. It is by far the simplest and easiest way I have ever primed brass. Its not as fast as a hand loader type but it is very affective. Anyone looking to upgrade the way they prime brass should look into one of these.

Didn't know they made something like that.

Thanks for posting.

No problem.

You can see it at MIDWAY USA.

Only problem I can see with that is that you have to manually handle the primers to get them in there, unless I'm missing something.

You do but its not a big deal. It insures the primer is in the right position to be seated. The reviews I read for the hand tools said that the primers would occasionally flip over and get seated upside down.

I use to have that RCBS tool (it was given to me and I accept any reloading tool given to me) It is a really good tool, but RCBS perfected things since then with their APS system. Check out the review at http://www.realguns.com/Commentary/comar76.htm

If you want to look at his other reviews on all the APS versions go to http://www.realguns.com/ and use the site's articles search. Search word: APS

BTW, I really like RealGuns.com The guy is very knowledgable and since he has his own store running mostly by itself, he has the time and ability to review and use everything under the sun. His reviews are always well done and complete. His life is obviously..guns. His life is obviously...good...I'm not jealous...I'm not jealous.

I read good things about that set up in a magizine some where,


I am loading on the down strike of the ram with the primmer tubes, I get one that flips out of 100, but I like it, pretty much zero handling. It came with my kit

Yeah I knew that. But I wasnt fond of the original part to begin with. It was just a small steel are that was screwed into the press and sat in the groove of the ram. It didnt take much to actually bend the steel arm.
