working on getting them made.....wondering if anyone else would be interested in one?
I would be depending on the construction and price. I'm looking into loading .40 S&W again next year for USPSA limited, expect to be loading lots more rounds a month. Was thinking of getting a Dilllon primer tube filler but the cost is OUCH!
im guessing the cost would be somewhere in the $20......i will have a picture soon
BG is talking about this:
You just dump primers in, it flips them and fills the tube for you. You're not gonna do that for $20.00. If you are, I'll take a dozen.
it would use a lee primer tray to flip and funnel then my part to get them into the primer tube
You've peaked my curiosity. Keep me informed of your work.
Sounds like a adapter for the Lee Hand Primer so that it attaches to your primer tube. Most people make their own and just permanently attach it to a primer tube. A adapter would be better.
I'm interested in how it works out, as well.
One of the big slow-downs in reloading is stopping every few minutes to pick up primers. Even if I load up a few hundred ahead of time, I just don't have enough tubes for 1000 and it takes a fair bit of time to shake and pick. Anything that improves the situation has my interest.
I kind of like the Dillon approach because it allows for concurrency. The primer tube can be loading while I am working the press. It would be even better if the gadget loaded more than 1 tube. But the price is so high I just haven't bought one - yet..
What I want is something that will load 10 tubes at a time and then I want a carousel on the loader to automatically index through the tubes. I just want to dump 1000 primers in a hopper and everything else happens by magic.
I would be interested in seeing what you have going.
I've seen this guys on youtube... looks pretty good, but at $50.... I'd like a testimonial from someone I know.

For $50 they should include a pre- modified tube. Most people don't have a lath.
Dillon's is a little problematic. Very high fiddle factor. Once you get it figured out it's not so bad. But that can take some time.
my first prototype.....needs some adjusting
I'm interested. Please keep updatng this thread.
I just watched a video of the Dillon version on youtube:
Slow AND super noisy. I'm not too impressed, really. The last 3 primers didn't even want to go "in", dude had to mess around with it.
Different video, this guy had at least 2 go in upside down:
He says "cost of doing business, you save so much time". Ugh.
Once properly setup it will do better then 2-3 per hundred flipped the wrong way. But speed is not a issue. You simply dump primers and keep loading. In a minute you just turn it off. If there are a couple left those will drop the next time you fill it up. But it takes some fiddling to get it reliable.
primers going upside down suck.....dillon says i think 1 in every 1000 but as you have stated it is a lot more than that.....i am working with my design but it seems there is no surefire way to stop upside down primers and fill with any speed......i keep you guys updated
What a WASTE of money... $400, id rather buy 4 bricks of primers..
It is pretty expensive, but as I have recently found out with the 1050, I can load 100 rounds faster than my buddy could fill one primer tube. If there was a cost effective solution, I think someone could sell a bunch of them.
$400?!! I just have my kids do it. they are so happy to do it too..
