No one answered golfnutrlv's question:

"... how do you get the last primer out of the pickup tube and into the press feed tube without pushing on it with a pointy object? (Not desirable with primers)."

I know what you mean. The little fingers on the plastic end of the Hornady pickup tube have a pretty good grip on that last primer.

I use the fiberglass rod to very gently push the primer past the fingers to join its brethren in the tube. I wear safety glasses while reloading but I'll admit to having a little trepidation during this manuever.

As the pickup tubes break in a little there is less tension on the primer.
