Lee Bullet Feeder

Hello all,

I recently purchased a Lee bullet feeder with the 4 tube adapter for 40sw and 357 caliber bullets. I set this up last night just to see if it works, and the thing is making my press vibrate so bad that it is rattling the bullets off of the feed lips. I know I'm doing something wrong, right? Should it add a LOT of resistance to my press action? I'm thinking of just getting rid of it, as I prefer to insert bullets by hand (as I just found out ). Does anyone want the dang thing?

I would say watch a few videos on youtube and see if that helps you get it figured out.

Other way yea I would like it.

With the feed dies and fingers for 40sw up to .65", and 357/9mm up to .70", multitube adapter and shipping included, I can send it for $60.00.

PM me if interested.

Try spraying things with the spray silicone lube....I run 4 dirrerent P1K's and have found this stuff to be a godsend! the fingers can bind on the guide / slide thing with a suprising amount of resistance.

Most people hate these feeders, but I get along fine with them. The secret is to leave them alone once set up for a particular bullet / cartrige combination.
