Handheld Primer Insertion Tool

#1 Post by MetalMagus »

Ok folks,
I am torn between 2 choices for a handheld primer insertion tool. I am looking at:

Sinclair priming tool
or
Frankford Arsenal priming tool

Does anyone use either and would you recommend?

Thanks thankssign

I use Lee.

They are all much alike and do a simple job.

Used the Sinclair one for over 20 years - the best.

Thanks for the responses. Will add the RCBS one to my list and see what my local RFD has in stock first. If I strike out there, I can then look online. But, I like to support my local RFD's where I can. Use it or lose it as they say.

Cheers
