    Apparently they shipped the new bullet feeder to me on Friday... should be here by Wednesday.

    I have three weeks to put it through it's paces, (they are sending 1000 .45 cal jacketed bullets in different weights and configurations but primarily they want it tested with lubed, lead bullets) and then write up an extensive review for this and several other forums.

    If at the end of the review period I decide to keep the feeder they will pay to ship the test model back, (they want to examine it) and ship me a new one for $150.

    Wednesday can't get here soon enough... hope my oxygen lasts that long.

    Prior to the full review I'll post comments on the ease, or difficulty in installing it and setting it up.

    Are you going to try it on any of your other presses? I don't remember, do you have a 650? Will it even work on other brands?

    Oh I don't have any doubt he's probably ordered it... I'm guessing his Visa card is screaming though...

    Oh yeah... Jack...

    LET YOUR SON CARRY IT UP THE STAIRS! ;)

  8. I just got the email notification that the new feeder was going to be available soon.
    I just spent $ on a new toy. An MP-15-22. No more toys for me for awhile.
    Looking forward to your write up, GTR Commandant:supergrin:
     
  9. Those guys are sneaky. They were going to charge me $200 for a new one if I liked it.


    I need a better agent.

    How do I get on that List? Heck I would even buy a new LNL AP to get on that list.

    I could be their 40SW test guy.
