Great off press priming tool.

This is a well built easy to use priming tool. It is especially helpful with some of the tough military brass. It mounts easily and has a reasonable footprint. It has all the leverage you will ever need for well prepped brass.
Great so far

I upgraded from a Lee hand primer tool and so far this thing has been great. It feels like I am getting very consistent seating of the primers. The plastic assembly does appear to be the weak link, but it did not fail on me so far (55 rounds). Too early to tell, but if this lasts for the thousands of rounds my hand primer tools did, it is an amazing value and so much easier and more consistent than the hand primer.
Used these since they came out.

I really like them. I have one at home, and one at the gun shop. I load 10,000+ revolver/rifle rounds every year for SASS ammo. I have only had one break, which LEE Precision replaced immediately.
If you use these as much as I do, you will keep a couple of extra adapters on hand, as they wear out.

I use almost exclusively Lee, but I may have to look elsewhere. Cheap plastic constantly breaking. I've had to send back 3 times already and now it's going back in for a fourth. their old system is better but they no longer offer replacement parts, It broke once after 1000s of rounds. This new replacement can't go a few hundred without being destroyed. If this is their new and improved; somebody needs to go back to the drawing board.

is very fast to use both priming and refilling tray. great feel when seating primer. only problem is jamming the staging bar if you tap primer tray to free bridged primers with primer lever up. taping with lever down after seating primer it never jammed the next 3000+ primers. you have to tap the primer tray to feed but the time you spend filling primer tubes or strips is much longer. hand held are almost as fast but i prime, chamfer inside, charge,and seat bullet so i don't have to wait on the charge master, laying down the hand held each time is too slow.
I wanted to like this primer

I wanted to like this priming tool. Loaded several hundred small and large primers and was able to feel the primers seat easily.
Then the priming sections (mostly plastic) started to break down, capture primers in the movement and not feed primers. I have already sent them back to Lee for replacement, and the newer ones broke quicker than the originals. I am now back to my RCBS hand primer.
Once Lee figures out the priming sections, I will be back.

I am totally dissatisfied with this tool. The small adapter broke after about 400 rounds and the large adapter broke today after <200rounds. I contacted LEE about the small adapter and they are sending a replacement but these problems along with others have caused me to request a return to GRAF. Another problem is related to the feed tray which does not feed primers without constant tapping to get the primers into the feed chute. Overall, this is a very fragile unsatisfactory tool. The concept is decent but the functional quality and longevity is severely lacking. Not up to the usual quality and long life of LEE products.
