My turn for a "weird tool?" post.
I saw this on eBay, looked interesting and I bid on it figuring worst case scenario If I won it, I'd have a extra Lee Auto Prime around for $20.00 shipped. No one else bid....
Its a Lee hand primer with some sort of RCBS die and linkage to deprime brass. I tried it out on with some .30-06, .308, .45 ACP, .45 Colt, .38 Special, and .357 Magnum and it works good. You drop the brass in the hole, close the cover and squeeze the lever and the primer pops out.
There is a second die that works the same way but it is machined so it fits a standard snap in shell holder instead of a Lee Auto Prime. The only thing I can figure is that it was made to use with another brand of hand primer.
Thing is I've never seen anything like them, I'd swear they were home built but they are stamped RCBS and the workmanship is very precise and clean as if they were factory made.
Any thoughts on this one??
