Thread: Recommended hand primer...

  1. #1

    Recommended hand primer...

    Looking for some opinions on hand primers prior to buying. Are these things fairly robust? Any point in buying new as opposed to a good second hand one and what make would you recommend?

    Thanks.

    Of course if you want a "real" hand primer that's properly made go for an RCBS Universal Hand Priming Tool, bit more expensive but you really do get what you pay for

    Thanks for the replies guys. Seems Lee are hard to beat with their pricing and reliability for hand primers. 4 out of 5 replies for the Lee (I realise Spud is selling another make too but Lee was mentioned first so I'm taking it)

    Thanks again

    I had my original Lee for about 2 decades. Bought the new model just to have around. Gave the old one to a friend who happily uses it still.~Muir
