    I was in a heated debate the other day over the fact that primer manufacture is a human performed hand-crafted task and this is part of the primer shortage / ammo shortage.
    Currently there is no machine that can duplicate the subtle touch and feel required to spread the primer compound into the primer cup other than a human.
    Now if I am wrong show your reference!

    I at one time had a 10 video on the step by step process of making primers at the Winchester factory. Can't find it anywhere - maybe on a flash drive somewhere???

    Anyway I found this video that skims the entire ammo manufacturing process.
    In the middle you see a lady filling primer cups and its all done by hand.

    Anyway here ya go - just a cool video to see!
