    Ask ten hand loaders what they use to prime their cases and you will likely get and equal number of different answers. Some folks like hand priming tools, others like bench priming tools, and then of course there are those who prefer to use the priming tool built into their reloading press. Each will have their justifications and reasoning as to why they prefer that style and method, but sometimes circumstances force you to change your process and adopt new methods. That's the situation I found myself in earlier this year and is the reason behind my recent purchase of the new Lee Auto Bench Prime priming tool.

    Not to long ago I realized I was long overdue to change the media in my tumbler. I have used walnut, corncob and treated corncob in the past with acceptable results, but was curious if there might be a better alternative out there. Walnut leaves my cases nice and shiny, but it loads up with resize lube pretty fast and thus requires frequent changes.

    This is without a doubt the least expensive way you can enter the reloading scene. For just about twenty bucks invested, you are almost halfway home. Everybody has a hammer lying around, the only other equipment really needed. Although I always used a plastic mallet and highly recommend one, it is not entirely necessary. This is the little package that can and did get me and many other people started in the reloading hobby.

    Inside the convenient plastic box is a neck-sizing die, a de-capping pin, a primer-seating tool, powder dipper and a bullet-seating device. Also ...

    Over the last 25 plus years, I've reloaded with nearly every reloading tool available in that time frame. I'm an inveterate trader and tinkerer and make no apologies for it. It keeps me interested and knowledgeable. I seem to end up with all the ...
