Can someone make a I/O measurement of a large primer pick-up tube for me? I'm going to a really good hardware store today and I thought I'd make some more tubes while I was there. This place is out of the way, so it's rare for me to go. I'm not at home or I'd measure this myself. Thanks.

For the time and money it would be better to just buy them from Dillon, plus the problems you would have with primers hanging up in the tube. You can get 4 Lg. tubes for $11.95 from Dillon.

I agree, I can't imagine trying to make them when they're very reasonably priced from Dillon!

I have a friend who has done it, and they work great...they're also $1 each at the store...unfortunately, he's not available right now, and I'm just about outta here. (work) I hope you guys aren't sitting at home near your presses and calipers and telling me to "just buy the Dillon tubes."
