I'm most likely going to buy one. Those of you with them, do you have any remorse?

I reload about 15,000 rounds per year on a Dillon 650.

Opinions? good or bad please.....

As long as it would function fine I think it would be great, but then I would want a mortised drive after that. Thousand rounds in one sitting doesn't really take that long on a 650 doing the manual way. if you reloaded just 3 hours a month you could keep up with 15 k rounds easily.

I produce 20-25k per year. I don't use a bullet feeder and do just fine....

It gives me just that extra step/pause to check everything over before seating a bullet.

I use them for rifle, I prefer the GSI because I can keep the powder check die in 3, seat in 4 and crimp in 5. All the other feeders force your to give up a station. Well, except the Lee feeder, only problem with it is making it work for more than a few hundred rounds without spitting bullets.

......now I'm beginning to think I should order some bullets and primers and skip the bullet feeder. I do enjoy the machine as is.

The MB feeder is great, but IMO, just complicates things but does work well. I load about 12k rds a year on a 550 & 650, I don't want or need a bullet feeder. BTW, if you shoot lead bullets, big headache.

I have a Mr. Bulletfeeder and pretty much love it. However, it's on a 650 that loads 45ACP and nothing but. So there's no moving it, converting it, readjusting it.

I don't realize just how much I love it and the case feeder till I load on my 550's Roll Eyes Big Grin


FWIW... I had a GSI International bullet feeder and it was a beautiful, well made, turd. Mad Couldn't get it to work worth a damn. After fighting with it for too long, I returned it for a refund, but at a great financial hit, shipping was astronomical.
