I have the swivel set bought from Avery 20+ years ago. I love it. It's done two RVs and allowed my wife to handle the gun where I needed a second pair of hands.

Thatís the one I have and IIRC, Jim? Avery would fine tune the rubber by sanding it down by hand on each and every one before it shipped.

I have one that looks like the one in your picture. It works great for me. No mods required!
I agree with this; I have never been able to get my swivel set to work well. Probably a technique or personal thing: it can't be that bad if some people can get it to work and swear by it.

But I love the Boeing style one, and can't stand the swivel type. Others feel the opposite.

It's funny--it's like when people ask for advice when they are just starting to get into competitive shooting. There is no one gun or tool that is best for everyone--the best is what works best for you!

I posted a review of how much I liked the Boeing ST set and it almost started a primer war. I found it to be much better for me particularly when working by myself.
