Like MTA, I like the Lee hand prime.
On press priming generally sucks.
I have the Lee auto prime. Its a bit different from the hand prime. IMO It is much better than the hornady hand prime that I have ended up throwing against the wall a few times :cool:. $26 on midsouth + $15-20 for lee priming tool shell holders if you dont have them already.

That looks nice, but I can hand prime while sitting on the couch watching Discovery Channel ;)

So I was looking again at this and evidently Lee says to load Federal primers one at a time...if that's actually required, it's a no go for me. I just picked up 1K of Federal SPP. :/

Midway had a free shipping promotion so I bit the bullet and picked up the RCBS bench prime.

PSA had the APS bench priming system for about the same time but I opted to go with the conventional. Looks like the APS is on the way out so no point in buying into a dying system.

They just launched the promo the day after I bought my rcbs swager tool and 8mm brass :banghead:
