I'm always interested in things that work reliably, speed up the operation, and don't cost more than what's already available.

It would help to know what price range you would expect.

Also if it is as fast and reliable as the Dillon unit.

As it is right now I just have a large quantity of tubes and fill them in advance of a loading session. I can start a session with 1,000 primers ready to go.

I am certainly interested. Are you working on one similar to the Dillon RF-100 Primer filler or the discontinued Frankford Arsenal vibra-prime? I am not really interested in spending $300 for a primer filler. The link below shows the Frankford Arsenal vibra-prime.

Looks cool. Filling those primer tubes has to be about my least favorite thing about reloading on the Dillion 650. Sadly now that the kids are a few years older, I can't convince them how fun it is anymore. And the wife? Well, I can't even convince her to clean her own dang guns let alone fill primer tubes!

Is that plastic primer tray from the Lee safety prime thingy? All the primers always end up the right way around inside the tube?

Sent PM. What do you mean by the primer tube needing to be "modified just a little" ?

I did pm you back in December, but never got a response. Anyway, I bought one of the little purple primer eaters from Subtle-T Engineering. So I don't need one of yours anymore.
