Tip: Lee Value Turret Spent Primer Fix

(Link for Email/RSS Readers)

Since getting setup with the Lee Value Turret press, I’ve been having about 10% of my spent primers fall out onto the floor while reloading. This isn’t a huge deal, but it’s annoying constantly having to sweep them up.

I made a quick, almost zero cost solution for this by molding some kydex around the three posts of the press to act as a guide for the primers as they fall out of the ram. This guides all of them into the base of the press, where I have drilled a hole in the workbench, and the primers fall through and get collected in a coffee can.

It’s quick, easy, and it seems to work 100% of the time.
