Default Dillon RF100 auto primer filler

just got a dillon RF100 automatic primer filler today. it showed up late this afternoon curtesy of FED EX. talk about handy and labour saving. one thing i hate is primer pick up tubes. anyone else have one of these magic devices?? i spent like an hour just playing with it refilling the tube over and over and swapping out the conversion from large to small.

Don't have a Dillon unit but, I do have a Frankford Vibra-Prime hand held unit that I paid ONLY $50.00 for NEW last year! One just sold on eBay NEW for $102.50 & Shipping and Handling and that is still cheap ($150 plus when new on eBay regularly). Sad thing is they used to sell NEW for $35.00 at MidwayUSA two or three years ago. The 9v Battery version is better than the AA Battery version. Still cool and very fast loading primers.

neat little device. im just incredibly lazy after loading for decades on a single stage talking at least a hundred thousand rounds or more anything to remove the tedium has beena plus. i didnt buy a progressive loader until about 8 years ago.

I never seen the need to pay $150 for something to do what I can do in almost the same amount of time. It is cool thought but to load 100 primers in a tube it takes me about 30 to 45 seconds.

it isnt that much harder to put use the pick up tubes but my laziness outweighs it. that thing has made it so much better loading the tubes while i work the press. there isnt much of a delay. its extravagant but since giving up pay to play computer games and the need to constantly upgrade my computer i got a little more leeway to get toys like taht.

I have had one of these for a lot of years. It really speeds up the total reloading process. It only takes me 10 seconds to dump a tray of primers in the RF100 and turn it on. I then continue to reload while its loading the tube. Saves some time.

The only recommendation is to keep the RF100 clean. Especially the ramps. If they become contaminated with primer residue, it will struggle filling the tubes. You find that it will take multiple cycles to load a tube. I use 70% Isopropyl Alcohol. Get a q-tip and clean the ramps. I also take a rag and clean the base area once in a while.

You will learn to love that machine.
