    My Lee kit is missing the plastic (vinyl) tubing that the decapped primers flow through. I can get tubing at Ace, etc. but not sure what size I would need. Anyone know the size? Inside diameter is probably what I would need. Thanks.

    I needed to switch my primer tube(to short) on my Hornady LnL. I just went to the hardware store and told the clerk what size the stem was and he sold me the correct size.

    Alan, ½ inch I.D. should work for you. That's what my lee classic cast has on it, I think the lee classic turret is the same.

    Assuming you have a dial caliper to measure OAL, use it to measure for the size tube you need.

    I used my digital caliper and it is 1/2" indeed. Sometimes we cant see the forest through the trees.
