    Lee APP Primer Swage Has Changed

    Been trying to look around to buy the swage dies for when the press finally ships. Titan and Lee both pulled the listing for the dies a few weeks ago. Midsouth has not. But they were all out of stock.

    Checking Lee's site today I see they now have a new version of it listed. It takes the shell holders that come with the press.

    And they will be delayed even longer than the delay for the press. Oh well!

    Thanks for the update,

    Yeh, and I checked the LEE site for the APP Primer Pocket Swage Kit Instructions and it says "coming soon".
    They must be re-writing the Inst. for the newest design...
    Size/Prime a few cases when starting off with a progressive and put them aside. You can plug them back into the process when a bad/odd case screws up the priming station and continue loading.

    I've been real tempted to jump in on the APP but changes to the first ones out is what is holding me back. I'll see how the first ones work out for the guys that get them.

    I got everything but the swages. When I went to order everything they had just went out of stock. Now they re did the whole Swage setup.

    I hope it works. I have about 15 5gal buckets of 556 brass that was supposed to go to the scrap yard. I am going to go through it and pull out the LC and take the rest to the scrap yard. Maybe. I should hold onto it for the election panic. Scrap is WAY DOWN right now.

    I don't have the Lee APP, so I still use the RCBS primer pocket swaging tool.

    I like my Dillon primer pocket swage. It works very well, once I got the hang of it.
    It's fast and easy to use.

    So I ordered all three swage styles from Titan the day they listed it for presale. Now there is only one, so what happens? The new one is more expensive than the singles, but less expensive than the three.
    Do they just send back the extra $$?
