    Lee hand priming tool thread size

    Hi,

    What is the thread size for the old style screw in lee priming shell holders? Pictures look like it is about 1/2x20.

    Thanks!

    I don't know the exact size but can tell you that 1/2X20 is way too coarse.

    The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

    Apparently somebody will need to. I don’t know where I hid my thread gauges or I’d measure one of mine. I agree with stubshaft that the threads are way finer than 20 tip... I’m guessing more like 28 or 32.
