Reloading: Frankford Arsenal’s Hand Primer

For the reloader who wants extreme control over the seating of their primers, Frankford Arsenal has created the Perfect Seat Hand Primer.  This tool allows you to seat the primer to an exact depth that can be adjusted in 1 thousandth of an inch.  As a reference, paper is usually around 4 thousands of a inch; that should give you some idea just how precise you can get with your adjustments (not something you could get with the typical press). Are you someone who does your own reloading? Want to know a little more about it? They sent us the following information.


This could be a useful tool for just adding a primer to a case to test for function.

The Frankford Arsenal® Perfect Seat Hand Primer is one of newest additions to the state-of-the-art Platinum Series line of reloading tools. This handy tool was specifically engineered to avoid “over seating” and when used properly eliminates the potential of crushing a primer. It features an adjustment dial which precisely adjusts the seating depth one thousandth of an inch at a time with a total adjustment range of fifty thousandths. Once the desired seating depth is set, simply squeeze the handle. Its integrated positive hard stop design will never seat primers deeper than the specified depth; thus eliminating the need to worry about “squeezing until it feels right.” The primer tray holds 100 plus primers for quick seating of multiple cases, works with both small and large primers and comes with twelve shell holders covering 652 different calibers. The Frankford Arsenal Perfect Seat Hand Primer is designed to create the perfect primer seat every time!

-Die cast zinc body with steel internal components
-Hard stop to avoid crushing a primer
-Heavy duty injection molded robust plastic storage case
