I bought this off of ebay for my Lee turret press. You would not be able to use the press mounted priming system with this installed.

The old model "value model" turret did not have the primer tube. The new model does. The build up of spent primers was why I changed to the new edition.

The "Classic" turret always had the primer tube.

I use a Harvey deprimer to remove primers prior to their first run in the tumbler. It saves me from unknowingly throwing a Berdan primed piece of brass in with all of the rest. Once in a while I will send some brass out for processing (.223 to .300 Blk conversion) to someone who runs a Dillon 1050 with an autodrive. He doesn't charge for the first broken decapping pin, but does for any subsequent broken pins. Hand depriming and cleaning prevents me from sending him bad brass.
I may end up doing this, thanks!

Now it's starting to make sense. Thanks!

For years I too have dealt with cleaning up spent primers. A PITA for sure. One of the presses I use looks to be the same as in the E Bay auction you posted.

Obvious questions: Does it work and did it solve the problem for you?

It did solve my problem. I have a Dillon xl650 so I basically converted my lee turret press into a single stage for loading 45-70. Iíve deprimed alittle over 100 rounds with this and all of the primers went into the chute and down into the tub. I purchased an adapter for my 650 as well that lets the primers fall in to my tub.

I have 2 Lee turrets and lee single station and none of my presses came with any sort of tube to catch primers. I put a large cardboard box under the press I am currently using and it catches about 90% of the spent primers. Can someone post a pic of this tube you're talking about?

I like to watch the tube fill up with spent primers. When it's full It's time to close up and go to bed

Circled area shows the tube extending from below the press arm.

Thanks for the input. I ordered one to try on the Lee Turret press.

I load longer rounds like 45-70, 7mm RM and 270 Win on that press. Since the catcher mounts on the ram handle side of the press it looks like the assembly and tube would be in the way of the handle and not permit it fully retract the ram. That shouldn't be an issue when sizing empty cases and catching spent primers. And I suppose the catcher could be removed when seating bullets.

We'll see how it works on my bench...
