    I have inheirited a few vintage Lee priming tools, the ones that use one primer at a time. They came with only 1 shellholder for 38/357 .
    Does anyone have one in 45 Colt they could sell me?
    This seems like a good priming tool and I like the feel when the primer enters the case its really sensitive.

    Very few of those around anymore. Lee may be able to help you but I would expect the cost could be hefty. And single primer tools aren't vogue anymore.

    Go to a benchrest match, where everyone is loading their ammo right at their shooting position and you'll see that the single primer tool is very much in vogue.

    So much so that there are even custom units made costing as much as $200.

    For Lee parts give them a call first. Then check the "collector" or "vintage" sites.
