Mini Mr Bulletfeeder
« on: September 25, 2013, 02:17:48 pm »
I just discovered the Mini Mr Bulletfeeder. It's a third of the price of it's big brother, Mr Bulletfeeder, but comes with some disadvantages as compared to the bigg'un. It has to be loaded manually, like a primer tube, as opposed to the hopper/collator of the original.

On the plus side, you can get multiple "magazines," which can be loaded in front of the TV. We all have multiple primer tubes which we load up before we start working the handle, so this seems little different. Double Alpha offers a combo pack that includes 3 magazines. That kit still comes in under half of what the orginal costs. I could load for almost a solid hour, stopping only to drop another tube of primers or replace the bullet magazine and have 300rds at the end. Probably take 10 minutes to reload all the components and do another 300 virtually without stopping. Get a friend to help with feeding and we could load a case or so in a day (we'll load his case tomorrow.)

Of course, if money were no option, I'd have the original on a Dillon 1050 with a Dillon RF100 loading my primers while I run the machine, but that's a $3k setup....and money is an issue, unfortunately. This seems like a nice compromise to fill some ammo cans quickly.

    I'm building my own version using the Hornady bullet feeder dies, acrylic tubes and a collator made from a 2 gallon Lowe's bucket.

    Will do.

    The tubing fits into the top of the die like so:
