LEE AUTO BENCH PRIME
Various devices have been designed to seat primers in cartridge cases. Long ago, the makers of presses incorporated a movable arm that could hold a primer at the upper end. Swinging the arm to a position under the case and drawing the case downward inserts the primer. This operation was slow and did not always provide a good “feel” to the process. Tools were developed that involved seating the primer by a squeezing motion that moved the primer upward. A later development had a saucer attached that held numerous primers so that a single primer did not need to be inserted each time.
Now comes a priming tool from Lee Precision that can be mounted on a bench or a special Lee Bench Plate System. The primer feed allows one primer to move from the reservoir to a position under the case, and by slight pressure, the seating ram forces the primer into position. This might well be the most convenient tool for putting primers in cases.
