Guys, I'm looking for the footprint (length and width in inches) measurement of the base of the RCBS Auto Bench Priming Tool. This is the RCBS priming tool that uses tubes as a feeder of the primers instead of the APS strips. I have tried to get this measurement from both MidWayUSA and RCBS without any luck so if one you that has this product and can take a moment to measure it, I'd certainly appreciate it.

Regards,
Milt

I just bought the same tool and I am making a mounting block ( out of wood ) for mine today . I bought mine after loading .223 for the first time . Loading a lot of rifle cases , what a pain in the butt over pistol loading .

I've used the RCBS bench mounted priming tool for about 40 years and you cannot find anything easier or faster. It provides great leverage and seats primer perfectly every time. I also prefer the primer tube model.

I have the press mounted tool, It does not take as much room on the bench and works great. I really like it as it allows you to adjust the primer seating depth.

Good Luck

BYJO4, thanks for your comments. The reviews that I've seen on this product are very good and your comment about leverage is one of the features that attracted me to this priming tool. I like the fact that the seating of the primer is done by a downward stroke of the handle instead of an upward stroke that most presses use.

I make metal brackets out of 1/2" plate and cut and weld C clamps for all my equipment that needs to be fastened. My bench is Stainless Steel wrapped so I don't want to drill any permanent holes either. The brackets also allow me to move things around as I need depending on what I am doing.
