Lee Auto Prime XR Hand Priming Tool
Seems Well Built
I just bought this product the other day and it seems well built. I got it because I kept having issues with the primers not being seated in the little priming piece on my turret press, which resulted in me having to handle just about each primer. I made the mistake of thinking that this used the same shell holders as the turret press, but it doesn't. That's the only disadvantage I have for this is that it requires it's own set of shell holders instead of using the same ones the presses use. So now I am waiting on my shell holders to get here (it's been almost a week already) so I can get back to reloading.

I want to say am impressed with this primer tool. Caliber/ shell holder, primer tray changing is easy/ fast.
Also the design of this primer seater is great I load in bulk and this tool primes 100 cases as fast as I can feed it shells with no problems. After two years of hard use it still works like new. Big fan of most Lee reloading tools

Best one so far.
I really like this primer tool. I was about to give up on primming off the press. I was given an rcbs hand primer as a gift, which worked for a total of 75 primers. Then it started flipping all the primers sideways. I couldn't get it working so I bought the lee. The Lee is smooth and works great. I've done.about 500 cases with no issues. Read the instructions and follow them. The only downside is you have to buys the special shell holders. The ones for the press won't work. If I ever need another ill get another Lee. I always end up back with lee products. They just work.

Great for the money.
One of the better and cheaper hand priming units out there. Uses proprietary shell holders but they are cheap and come in a Universal set. Works well. Good for priming .223 Mil brass - you get that feel if the mil crimp is still there or case isn't trimmed enough. Quick and primer feed so far is 100%.
