Anybody have any experience with one of these? Thanks in advance.
If you have a press that isn't a Lee, you'll want one. Absolutely need one? No, but as cheap as they are, and the time they save you, you'd be crazy not to have one.
Key thing, is get an "oversized" one. Otherwise, the corners of the primer tray will hang off the side, and you'll lose a couple of primers every time.
I use one and I think having it saves some time. You dont really need it but they are cheap and they do make things a little easier.
I use a square one like RCBS makes. I just put it over a tray of primers and flip all of them at once so they're ready to pick up with the tubes.
I've been using my RCBS for over 20 years.
RCBS makes a nice one.
Spend the extra money and get one of these. Just remember to throw away the tube adaptors that come with it. Mine works best when the tubes are against the hole in the tray. Takes about 15 seconds to load 100 primers into the tube.
That's a great concept, and when it works it's great. Too bad FA made it out of plastic.
Great except they dont make them anymore.

Dillon Precision makes a nice Primer Flip tray and its made of metal.
I have a metal flip tray, and wouldn't be caught dead without it. One of the great labor saving devices of all time.
I have a metal one... The Gold Dillon one.. But now I am afraid to use anything that has to do with priming and Dillon and metal and static electricity.. I should have just stayed in my own little quiet world... Damn World Wide Web..
You have a better chance of winning the Lottery than a primer going off and causing any damage. I guess you better stay home today and the next because you might have a car wreck on the way to work. Or you might fall in the shower all are more dangers than reloading. If you follow standard safety precautions.
I have a question concerning primers that I had to 'take out' becuase they seated wrong for whatever reason.
What the heck do you do with them?
I mean I just don't want to throw them out.
So, how do you folks get rid of them?
oh and also 'used primers'.
What do you do with them?
Can't recycle them, can u?
Do you just throw them out?
I just run them through the single stage press with a universal decapping die slowly. I just throw them away. Also the spent primers. Dont know if the junk yard will take them or not. But the last time I went to the junk yard it cost me more to replace the tire than what I got for what I took over. Spraying the primes with WD40 does nothing. Takes about 3 days to kill the primer and once they dry out you have a live primer again.
They're brass, so I keep them with the eventual plan of selling them to the scrap man. So far I have 1 3/4 gallon milk jugs full.
I've heard of some guys loading them into shotgun shells.
ETA: I agree with Bob. Just slowly deprime the live primers (wear eye protection) and either reuse them in practice rounds or toss them. I don't put live primers in the recycle bin because I'm afraid they might pop and splash someone while being smelted, but I've heard from smelters who say it's not a problem.
I just throw USED ones in the trash.
In 40,000+ rounds, can only recall one or two *new* ones getting ruined (going in sideways and getting crushed or something. Those went in the trash also.
I've had several go in upside down, I just *carefully* push them out and re-use them in PRACTICE rounds. Or I've also had a bullet fall over when going into the seating die and damage the brass. I also extract and re-use those primers. I'm a cheap SOB when it comes to my primers.
One more reason you should have started reloading sooner.
Used ones are available.
