CPS_Lite - Press-Mounted Primer Seater
** PATENTED **
The CPS_Lite was designed to provide a lower-cost alternative to the CPS for shooters that desired a robust and precise high-volume primer seating tool. The limitations of other priming tools are self-evident to those that have used them for a 300, 500, or 1000rnd priming session. Hand priming tools can cause extreme fatigue in your thumbs and hands. This is especially true when you have a batch of brass with tight primer pockets. The bench-mounted units are often quite a lot safer, but generally much slower. They also often lack the same "feel" you get with the hand priming tools.
The CPS_Lite screws right into your existing reloading press and allows you to prime quickly and precisely using the same shuttle systems from our CPS design.
Good for right-handed or left-handed use. The orientation of the CPS_Lite can be changed for left hand or right hand presses by using the included die lock ring.
Speed, without sacrificing precision or reliability. Some priming tools are very fast. Others are very precise. The CPS_Lite is both fast and precise. You can achieve seating depths accurate to within a thousandth of an inch, all while priming at a comfortable rate of over 15 cases per minute.
Precise primer seating depths. Precision rifle shooters know that one of the keys to reducing your extreme velocity spread is to ensure consistent powder ignition. The CPS_Lite has an adjustable mechanical hard stop built in to ensure you can set the primer depths right where you want them, and hit that depth with each stroke of the ram.
Universal primer tube loaded. You can use nearly any brand of primer tube for simple and effective loading of primers into the tool. No more plastic trays to break or fumble with. As long as the tubes have an outside diameter of .312" or so, you can use them with the CPS. The unit ships with both small rifle and large rifle priming tubes.
Integrated shuttle feeding system. The CPS_Lite uses a manually-operated shuttle system to slide primers from the primer tube into position over the primer rod. This ensures that any jams or misaligned primers are easily and safely discovered by the operator. Slight finger pressure is all that is required to position a primer for seating. Sliding the shuttle rearward until it stops will capture a primer from the primer tube. Sliding the shuttle forward will position the primer over the priming rod. This is an effortless motion which completely isolates the primer being pressed into the case from the rest of the primers in the primer tube. The manual operation also ensures that you will be able to feel any malfunctions immediately and allow you to stop if a jam occurs.
Press-mounted. The CPS_Lite is a press-mounted priming tool. You screw the CPS_Lite right into the top of your existing reloading press, which turns your press into a precision priming machine!
