    hand primer , you can "feel " the primer going in and get the same pressure , I still use the Lee hand primer but the new version is crap, the old style one is quicker .

    Hi doug, I'll have a look in the garage later bud, I'm selling a few things off and I'm in the loading room that's the other half of the garage, not sure what loading geari still have but if there's a hand primer there I'll drop you a pm,

    I used the arm on my rockchucker and found it ok but it slowed the process down for me so I have never used it since, and I think I had a spare hand primer somewhere. Here's hoping bud
