Thread: Compatibility of shellholders for Lee Auto Prime and RCBS press?

    Compatibility of shellholders for Lee Auto Prime and RCBS press?

    Hello everyone.

    This bank holiday weekend, I had planned to finally sit down and start reloading, using the kit assembled from various generous SD members and a few sundries that I bought myself. It's been a long time coming, but it's just hard to find the time nowadays. But I've suddenly had a scary realisation: is the shellholder in my RCBS press compatible with my Lee Auto prime tool? Because if it isn't, there's no way I can score one by the weekend, which means that this damned project is once again pushed back, and I do have a bit of a deadline.

    I think you need a special one for the hand primer.

    That's what I feared. Damn. This is just never going to happen at this rate. OK, I need to order one now.

    Is the Lee tool the only priming tool you have (I'm thinking there might be one built into your press - my RCBS press has one, for example - that you could use as a stop-gap). If not, console yourself with the thought that once you do get reloading, you'll really appreciate how well the Lee priming tool does its job... with the correct shell-holder, of course.

    Yes, we've met, and I don't care to spend £10 and several hours travelling out there and back again this weekend... Anyway, I ordered what I need from Mr Spud earlier on, and Geoshot may well lend me the missing item this weekend, if he turns out to have one, so we shall see.
