Operation of Lee Safety Prime Video

Operation of Lee Safety Prime Video

There have been quite a few questions recently on the smooth operation of the Lee Safety Prime system. This video was made to demonstrate it's proper operation. Quality is not great since I used a digital still camera, not a camcorder, but the principles are clearly to be seen. I am using a Lee Classic Turret Press in the demo.

I hope this helps new users and others who have been learning to use this important new priming system.

Thanks for the video!

Your Safety Prime seem less "wobbly" than mine...I'll have to check to see if I have it set up wrong.

Yeah, mine seems to be quite wobbly as well. I'm going to head down to the basement later this morning and try loading some.

Just an update...

I filled the primer tray with 50 primers (I think it was 50) and gave it a try.

MUCH better operation. I also found that operation was MUCH better when I used my thumb on the trigger instead of my index finger as I had been doing.
