    Hello all- Just completed another video in the "RCBS Bullet Feeder" series that I've been working on. This time, I show loading with the RCBS Pro 2000 (loading 45ACP). Finally, the bullet feeder matches the press :)

    Link to the video:

    What's nice about this setup is that you can mount the bullet feeder behind the press on your bench (I use the RCBS Accessory Baseplate 2) rather than off to the side like you would with the Dillon XL-650, or the Hornady Lock-N-Load.

    This video is basically a continuation of the RCBS Pro 2000 loading 45ACP video (http://ultimatereloader.com/?p=782) but this time with the bullet feeder. I also modified the die positions, and tried out charging and flaring the case mouth in a single station (worked quite well).
    I'm happy with how this press runs with the bullet feeder. It's way easier to grab brass with your left hand each time than to grab/insert brass, then grab/place a bullet. Plus, they look good together :)

    Here's the die setup:
    1. RCBS Decap/Size
    2. Powder Charge/Expand case mouth
    3. RCBS Lockout die
    4. RCBS Bullet feeder die
    5. RCBS Seat/crimp

    Perhaps I'll try this out with the Loadmaster, the only 5-station press I haven't tried it with.

    And here are some screenshots from the video:

    That video is a lot more entertaining to watch than the Bronco game right now. Bums I tell ya, they're all bums... well, unless they win.

    Another very good job with the video.
