    At first glance it would seem the APS system for primer feed that RCBS has would be safer than the stacked tubes of primers the others use. I have shot trap for many years and am just getting started in metallic reloading. I am wondering what you think of the APS system in general. Also, I have not seen the aps preloaded primers anywhere so I assume I will be loading my own strips. Is it worth the extra effort? How many here have ever had a tube of primers "lite off"?

    I nor any on my friends have ever had anything "lite off." I've never used the APS system, however, the worse problem I have ever encountered with a stack tube is a stuck primer and a load of powder on my work table. I've learned to be careful and concentrate while loading and have done that by completing one step at a time. RCBS makes some of the best equipment available, but I don't believe their's is any more safe than any one elses.

    Buy a hand primer and prime your brass in advance - I've been doing that for years on calibers from 22 Hornet to 416 Rigby. I have the Hornady hand primer but there are several quality offerings........
