I'm reloading .338 Lapua and .308 Winn and I don't like the results I'm getting using my press. Any suggestions?

I use the Lee Auto Prime 2 priming system that is press mounted like a die. It primes on the top of the press. You can adjust the die to get the perfect primer depth on any case. It uses your standard shell holders.

For priming I like and use the LEE hand primer. Like the feel you get with this tool when seating the primer. Replaced my first one a couple years ago with a new one. The old one had primed over 10K rounds of ammo and still worked but was getting a bit worn.

I use the RCBS hand primer. Seems to work for me, but the aforementioned Lee Auto Prime 2 has piqued my interest.

Lee auto prime here as well. I do all my loading by hand. I only have a single stage press on the bench for sizing/de priming.

Been using the RCBS seperate bench tool so long I don't know if I could get comfortable w any thing else. Even using the Dillon I feel like I'm leaving something out.

That all I use! Once I get going with a couple of primer tubes it is faster than a hand tool.

I like the Lee hand primer too. I just watch TV and prime brass.

The RCBS universal hand primer looks pretty cool because you don't need to purchase extra shell holders.
