RCBS Ram Priming Unit

Use one?What is your opinion?I dropped the spring for my on press mounted primer arm.Searched for it but could have went down a floor vent.I need to buy this as an upgrade or buy a primer arm or plug to get a spring.Unless smoene has spare spring.I made a spring but have not tested it yet.

Re: RCBS Ram Priming Unit

I have one of these and really like it, https://www.midwayusa.com/product/31...d-priming-tool

And a friend has one these and likes it, I didn't like as much as the hand held but it does work nice, https://www.midwayusa.com/product/45...h-priming-tool

Re: RCBS Ram Priming Unit

I haven't primed with a press in so long I wouldn't even remember how to set it up! I've had a Lee Autoprime forever. It works. The only thing I had to do to the thing, ever, was open up the cartridge slot with a dremel for WSM cases....the new ones are already larger.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Re: RCBS Ram Priming Unit

I used a Lee till I broke it (thumb lever). Bought a Lyman and LOVE it. For the same (or similar) price compared to the Lee, I'll take the Lyman every day and twice on Sunday. And I'll take any hand priming tool over press priming with equal enthusiasm.

I broke the press-mounted priming stem and had to get a hand primer to finish what I was doing (I live near Cabela's). I never bothered to replace the press mounted priming stem!

Re: RCBS Ram Priming Unit

Haven't used a press priming system in over 35 years.

Went to Lee Auto Primes that long ago. The oldest one still works fine, because I've always kept the lever cam lubed. Have two, one for each sized primers.

Nothing beats the feel of a properly seated primer with a hand held tool.

Re: RCBS Ram Priming Unit

Found that little rascal of a spring.I now have time to decide on another type of priming tool.I can go load some new bullets now for testing.I need them refined before rifle season and just got them.Oh I trried a few home made springs,nope,wire too thick.
