I have all manner of priming tools, including 35 year old Lee hand priming tools, however this is all I use for priming these days:
There is no separate shell holder needed, the tool fits all cartridge cases.
It uses the CCI APS priming strips to feed primers into position. CCI Primers can be purchased packaged in the APS strips, the strips reused, or new strips purchased separately. Any brand of primer can be loaded in the strips, either by hand, I press them into the strip with a thumb, or a strip loader can be purchased that loads them in bulk. When I load a 1000 rounds, I use the strip loading tool.
Most precision shooters use a hand tool for better "feel' in seating primers.
