    :rofl:

    Wonder what it will cost? Back in the day, I believe it was around $25-$30. I can't see them selling it for that anymore, not after they've seen what people pay for Dillon's.

    I have to admit pecking primer tubes manual doesn't really bother me at all. I usually load 200-400 rounds at a sitting and it takes me 4-8 casual minutes. That time gives me the opportunity to get into the "Zone" as you will. I go over my load at that time in my head, make sure that I've done my other primarily prep for the upcoming loading session.

    I definitely can not justify the Dillon primer filler, no matter how I try. $50 for a Vibra -Prime though, no brainer.

    Don’t know about the new one. But the old one I never could get their filler tubes to work right. I just held the Dillon ones in place instead of the Vibra Prime. It is well worth the 47.00. Glad to see they came back out with it.

    I just pre fill 6 tubes I got when I am bored. The more rds I need to load (anything over 300) I actually enjoy the break from pulling the handle to load a primer tube.

    When I take a break the last thing I want to do is spend the time loading primer tubes. I want to take the break away from the loading bench.

    I ain't gonna lie... it would just be cool to have a Vibra-Prime in the reloading tool box. :cool:

    I'm with you, I just zone out also thinking about my loads or women :dunno:. I really don't mind it to much. Is it just me, or does a 100 primers shaking in my hand scare anyone else..:wow:

    What bothers me is when they are going from the pickup tubes into the primer magazine.

    No they fly them around the world, sometimes more than once and they don't go off. Don't force them and you will be fine, same as women.

    Did you actually get one ordered while it listed "in stock"?

    I got the notice this morning and checked immediately and it still showed out of stock... checked again several times. The due date moved from 2/28 to 3/1 now at 5/13.

    I didn't get the notice, guessed they kicked it after moving the expected date to mid May. A thread on BE alerted me yesterday and I ordered a few, have to say their "dealer" price leaves something to be desired these days.
