I don't use the APS but do use a hand held RCBS tool to prime. Never handle the primers. When emptying the box one decides how many (if less than 100) primers he needs and slide the tray out of the carton to that amount, place the tool tray over tray in carton and turn upside down. It works if you the amount of primers are in multiples of 10! I have been satisfied with it even though I have a Dillon 650. The reason is I like to clean primer pockets and seat the primer to the bottom of the seat for highly tuned revolvers (i.e. light actions). For a semi auto or rifle with heavier firing pin strike I don't think one would need to do this. Just that I had a bad experience once with a lot of ammo for the revolvers I loaded up and it didn't go bang (note that I didn't have the Dillon then either).On 2001-06-12 01:29, JLM wrote:
Do any of you guys use the RCBS APS Hand Priming tool (or the bench mounted version for that matter).
