This is what I sent Lee (along with video and pictures of damage):
The auto priming press is very dangerous. See attachments. Loaded the first hundred great. Had my daughter vide a segment so I could post how well it was working. The video and pictures speak for themselves. I want my money back on this. This thing is going to hurt someone bad. Your system will not let me upload the video.
This was the first response from lee:
Sorry to see you had primers detonate on your ACP press, I hope you were not injured.
We will give your money back on this press. Could you please let me know what address to send a return shipping label to?

Just a few questions for you:
What brand of primers were you using?
Was the explosion shield damaged at all?
In the picture, the torsion spring was missing around the trough. Was it present on the trough before explosion?
• What brand of primers were you using?
Federal No. 150 Large Pistol Primers
• Was the explosion shield damaged at all?
Burned by primer flashes
• In the picture, the torsion spring was missing around the trough. Was it present on the trough before explosion?
Yes it was in place. I had checked in accordance with the instructions. I eventually found it and is in one of the pictures of pieces. The trough was blown completely apert by the primers in it.
All I can find is what is in the pictures. I have uploaded the pictures and video. The machine worked great for the first 143 priming's. I was on the last of the 200 brass I was reloading when I asked my daughter to record a set so I could post how well it was working. There were approximately 30 primers in the tray when it went off. No live primers were found in the debris, it cooked off all of them. Let me know if you have any questions
