As many of you know, Midway had a special on APS SPPs the other day. I bought 3000 (shouldve bought more). I believe it was BDS who mentioned the RCBS hand primer was only 39$ (free shipping from amazon) so i figured I'd bite. Everyone might already know about this APS stuff but its all new to me. Of course it could crap out on me any moment but I have to say, I really like it. I havent tried to change the "plug" ( i think they call it) from small to large yet but it looks easy in the instructions. Its quite a solid feeling piece and well made. It has a universal shellholder which is working very well so far. Im always skeptical of "universal" but so far, so very good. It's a big plus-when I started fiddling with it I was dreading doing the shellholder shuffle and then remembered you dont need one. Awesome! The strips are easy to deal with, just feed a strip of 25 primers in, and it moves a primer up one position every time you compress the handle. Easy peezy-You can also attach the strips together for continuous priming, just snaps right together. They also have separate unit you can buy that will actually load strips of non-APS primers into the APS strips. (I dont have it-yet) It's priced almost like a lee product IMO which is always nice and with RCBS' warranty there's no worries there. With my regular rcbs hand primer, I've never had a priming session where their wasn't at least some small snag...but I had no issues in about 100 cases, no fiddling with loose primers, nothing going in sideways or upside down, no swirling priming trays and having all but 3 primers flip over the right way, no lid popping off the primer tray. Just really smooth operation. Though its probably good to have the ability to go the normal priming route also, I highly recommend one of these bad boys. Thanks fellas, now Im off to prime some cases! I'll try to update any new thoughts, and feel free to ask me any questions. Its brand new and I dont know the ins and outs, but I'll do my best to answer any if you're on the fence.. -PH ***If anyone has any comments on the Strip Loader, and the ease of use, I would like to hear your comments, thanks!
