Many here like the hand primer seating tools. With the volume of cases I reload at any one time my tired old hands would give out and take days to recover. If there is a tool that seats primers perfectly every time with total consistency every time then why would anyone choose to "feel" the primers seat? But hey, we all get to choose.
There is. Both Lee and RCBS make a ram primer unit, unaware of any others, can't speak on the repetiviness of the Lee, but once you've set the seating depth on the RCBS unit, it seats the primer the same on every case. Of course, you're back to handling each primer one at a time.
