    Default Priming

    What is everyone using for a priming tool? Loading for the 308 and 250 Savage. Trying to not break the bank on this stuff.
    I've already told you more than I know.

    I use an RCBS hand primer.
    Had a priming tool attached to my press but got rid of if.
    Like the hand primer much better. (No comments!)

    RCBS hand priming tool. It allows you to feel when the primer is seated and avoids crushing/damaging the primer, specifically the anvil on the inside. Unless the automatic tools have greatly improved I would go with a hand tool. Once you get used to it the time spent is minimal. Also cheaper, the calibers you referenced use the same size shell holder.

    Thanks all.

    I was looking at the Lee RAM Prime but will go with the RCBS universal hand priming tool instead. There is no one within 3 hours of me that carries any reloading supplies so it is hard to look at things.

    RCBS hand primer, but if I’m only doing 10 or 12 rounds I just use the primer on the rcbs press.

    If you want pics of anything let me know. I have some lee case trimmers, rcbs lathe case trimmer, pact electric powder dispenser and scale, rcbs priming tool and rcbs single stage press. I was into reloading pretty big for a while. Now I just do hunting loads.

    i have a press, dies, scale, calipers, trimmer, chamfer tool, shellholder, brass, primers, and bullets. All I really need now is powder and something to prime with.

    Another vote for the RCBS hand primer. It's also nice to have a tumbler to clean your brass.
