The CPS was designed to address the need for 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.
Recognizing these deficiencies, we set out to design the worlds best priming tool, with all of the strengths of other units, but none of their weaknesses.
Good for right-handed or left-handed use. The handle on the CPS can be moved to accommodate any bench position or priming style you prefer.
Speed, without sacrificing precision or reliability. Some priming tools are very fast. Others are very precise. The CPS is the only priming tool to combine both features into a single unit. You can achieve seating depths accurate to within a thousandth of an inch, all while priming at a comfortable rate of over 20 cases per minute. At that pace you can easily prime over a thousand cases per hour.
Absolute precision 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 has a revolutionary adjustable shell holder system which allows you to raise and lower your case in relation to the priming rod. You can seat the primer deeper or shallower in .001" increments. The adjustment mechanism has tactile and audible clicks to ensure you stay on your desired seating depth. One click = One thousandth of an inch adjustment.
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 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.
Bench-mounted for rigidity and stability. The CPS is a bench-mounted priming tool. This ensures a controlled and static orientation of the case being primed, so that if a faulty primer detonates, the blast will be directed straight upwards through the case mouth rather than in a random direction. Being mounted to a bench also allows for a consistent technique and operation of the priming tool.
Rotational drive system. Nearly all other priming tools on the market utilize a pivot drive system to provide leverage. The drawback with those systems is that the amount of force required to achieve the desired leverage changes through the tools range of motion. Unlike pivot-driven designs, the CPS provides an accurate and constant feel through the entire range of motion. This, combined with the extreme strength and rigidity of the CPS ensures that you will "feel" each primer as it is being seated. This is important so that worn out brass can be identified and culled when you feel a loose primer pocket.

Primer Flip Tray
Shell holders for your cartridges.
The CPS is compatible with Lee Auto-Prime type shell holders. This is also the same style used by Sinclair and other priming tools. The CPS is not compatible with RCBS and Hornady type shell holders which are used in their presses.
In collaboration with Double Alpha Academy, we're pleased to offer our custom color-matched Primer Tubes which are designed specifically to allow owners of our patented Competition Primer Seater to use the Double Alpha PrimaFill to fill their primer tubes!
**Will only work with our CPS using the new red and black primer tubes!**
The Double Alpha PRIMAFILL is a semi-automatic primer tube filling solution, able to quickly and easily fill both Small and Large primer tubes. It allows you to switch between Small and Large primers instantly, without tools or assembly.
The PRIMAFILL can be used with any primer tubes which have an 8mm outer diameter, such as Dillon, or DAA/Primal Rights tubes. It does not require a custom adaptor piece fitted to the tube, as other competing products require. So using the PRIMAFILL, you will be able to fill all your primer tubes!
The Extra-Large flip-tray area is convenient when emptying large primer boxes, such as Federal and others. The tray is large enough for the entire box to fit over.
The PRIMAFILL is powered by a regular 9v battery (not included). A momentary ON switch falls naturally under your index finger as you hold the device for right hand use, with your thumb centered on top of the lid. Hold the button down as you feed the primers into the tube, and release as soon as the last primer vanishes down the exit hole. Since this action should take 20 seconds or less, one battery charge will last for many thousands of primers.
The spring-loaded orange latches incorporated into the output posts enable you to snap a tube into place, or remove it, instantly without any twists or turns, the latch falls naturally under your thumb: you press down on it as you insert the tube up, and you press up on the latch as you extract the tube downwards. An Easy and natural apposing thumb action.
Primer tubes and battery are not included!
Organize your reloading bench with this practical and efficient Primer-Rack. Hang your full primer tubes upright to prevent them spilling, and keep them close at hand next to your press.
The kit includes the wall-mountable Rack (screws not included) and 10 collars with set-screws to attach onto your primer tubes.
Designed for 8mm tubes such as those available from Dillon or DAA but it can be used with any brand tube which has the same outer diameter!
The parts are made from hi-quality polymer and rubber-coated for an extra cool look and feel.
