Priming.

716 24
Priming a few boxer cases this morning with Federal 210Ms. Did a couple of batches of berdan yesterday using Tula 7.62 Ns. I use the same tool for both, RCBS universal. I like this priming tool a lot because there is no need for different shell holders and after some getting used to, you can tell if the primer pocket is worn or working well. Whatta Hobby!

I use the same RCBS Universal hand primer ...as you can "feel" the tightness of setting the primer. Not all primers and brass primer pockets are equal in exact size. I wear golf gloves to help my old hands when priming several hundred at a time.

I’ve been trying to find large rifle primers for a while. If I do find them they either want third party paying or they just want too much. Same thing for powder.
Do you have any primers to trade? A while back I posted in a forum Trade section to swap a brick of small pistol I had for a brick of small rifle. I stated LOCAL ONLY. A forum member responded and met me at a local store and we swapped primers.

I use one of these RCBS bench priming tools; however, I have it attached to an RCBS accessory plate that I can attach when needed to the bench with a clamp thereby, freeing up much needed space on my reloading bench. Except for my Redding Ultramag press, I have my both of my redding powder throwers, and a Rock chucker press on these accessory base plates from RCBS. I can rearrange my reloading bench whenever I want to without having to drill holes in my reloading bench. Very convenient!
Good minds....think alike! With limited workspace I have my RCBS mounting plates ( for presses ) and motorized trimmer mounted to 12x24x3/4 board that I can clamp to my work bench or remove and set below. (y)
