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 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.

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
FWIW... I had a GSI International bullet feeder and it was a beautiful, well made, turd. 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.
