What a a great time saver! So easy to load the hopper with primers and keep pulling the handle of my Dillon and listen to the tick tick tick sound as the primers are loaded into the tube. By the time I have loaded a few more rounds the tube is ready and I start another tube loading. Great to have...

The DAA Primer-Pro is legit! I hated filling primer tubes and now I never will again. Mine arrived a little too tight to spit out primers, but was simple to adjust it and get it running 100%. I like it and I would recommend it!

The collator works very well. Some tweaking may be necessary on occasion. But it does very well so far for me. Eliminates the most irritating task in bulk loading. Hope they provide large primer capacity soon.

What a disappointment the DAA Primer-Pro Collator is for the price. If you only want to do small primers and chose a non-sticky primer it seems to work. But it will not do large primers and you have to spend a lot of time cleaning and waxing to get it to process Winchester primers. In my opinion,...

Excellent product. Feeds CCI like a champ. Federal not so much. I was told (but didn't try) Winchester also doesn't feed so well. Instructions are vague on how to address the problem of the unit not picking up and delivering the primers. Trouble shooting refers to this as the unit is "slow". to...

Wow!!! This makes filling tubes so easy. The only drawback is the tube angle prevents using this if your bench has any side thickness. I made a small shelf and attached it to my bench. Take time with setup.

The concept is great. I love the fact that it doesn’t use vibration, that you could put more than 100 primers in the hopper, that it counts 100 +\- and stops, and that it is pretty affordable. Unfortunately it is high maintenance, in my experience. I mainly use Fiocchi primers and the only brand...

Takes a couple of minutes to set up and a few more to get the collator plated dialed in. But once it is dialed in, it works great! I had to back out the screws on the back side of the collator 2 full turns. Using Federal Small pistol primers.

DAA PRIMER-PRO Collator

(55)
Manufacturers: Double-Alpha Academy

Description:

US PATENT 10,718,599

Please note: 
Some types of primers are tacky/sticky. These may not slide well through the slots in the Primer Pro Disk or down the Exit Ramp. This can lead to a slow output rates and/or poor exit ramp/hole performance.
One simple solution to this issue is to apply a little silicon to the primers before loading them into the Primer Pro, as shown here.
Another effective solution is to periodically clean/lube the Primer Pro plastic parts using a plastic cleaner/Polish or dry lube, such as Pledge, Cockpit spray cleaner or the likes. As shown here.
With one or the other solution applied, all types of Small Primers can successfully be used.

--------

The PRIMER-PRO by Double-Alpha is a unique new approach to handling primers, and the solution reloaders have been waiting for!

As any reloader knows well, manually filling primer tubes can be the most time-consuming and aggravating step in the whole reloading process, and few good automated solutions exist.

Until now!

The PRIMER-PRO by Double-Alpha is an innovative patent-pending design which departs from the traditional vibratory bowl solution used by all other automated primer tube machines. The PRIMER-PRO uses a collator type solution where the primers are allowed to exit the bowl through 20 precisely formed channels, ONLY if they are orientated in the correct direction (Anvil side up). If they are Anvil down, they will not pass through the channel, and rather slide back into the bowl as their channel reaches the top of the rotation, to enter again later, correctly oriented.

This rejection-type design makes it practically impossible for a primer to enter the output channel if incorrectly orientated, making this device extremely reliable. During development, we ran many successful tests in which 100 tubes were filled (10,000 primers fed) without a single up-side-down primer!

As the primers slide down the covered output-chute, they pass through an optical sensor which counts them and stops the collator once 100 primers have been counted into the primer-tube. The electronic processor board also monitors the sensor and is programed to stop the collator if, for whatever reason, primers hang-up on the exit hole and stack up along the ramp. The collator will be stopped before the primers stack all the way up and jam the collator. In such a case, the LED will flash quickly to indicate there is a problem. Once cleared, pressing the start button again will allow the collator to run and the count will continue from where it was stopped. Or alternatively, a long press on the button will start the count a new.

One of the most innovative design solutions of the PRIMER-PRO is the Output Actuator Arm, which is activated by a lever system off the Timing Disk at the bottom of the Collator Assembly. This Output Actuator Arm slides the primers from the bottom of the ramp slide, moving them over to above the output hole, holding them there for a split second to ensure they are static, horizontal and stable, and then retracting to allow the primer to fall cleanly down into the awaiting primer tube. This dynamic solution for the exit hole greatly reduces the chance of primers hanging up while exiting into the tube, a problem common with other automated primer fillers.

The PRIMER-PRO is currently available only for Smaller Primers, and handles Small-Rifle or Small-Pistol Primers equally well. A Large primer version may be offered in the future.

One Magnetic Collar for a Dillon Primer Tube is included with the unit. A PRIMER TUBE IS NOT INCLUDED! Since the PRIMER-PRO can refill a single Primer Tube faster than you can use the previous 100 primers in any reloading press, only one tube is strictly necessary.

However additional Magnetic Collars can be purchased separately, for those who prefer to fill multiple tubes before starting their reloading session.

The unit is powder by a 12v DC power supply (dual voltage, 110-230), which ships including a suitable European and US prong set (included). The power cord is 2 meters (6ft) long, and includes an ON/OFF switch in the cable.

NOTE: Primer tube not included.

By the time I have loaded a few more rounds the tube is ready and I start another tube loading. Great to have loaded primer tubes at hand and the magnetic collars fix the tubes perfectly into place for loading, no guessing and no spilled primers.

On my first attempt at using this unit i was dissapointed and was sure i would send it back for a refund. Primers would gather under the plate and lift the whole primer plate off the unit and up the drive shaft. After some investigation and after calming down over my initial dissapointment i realized what was happening. There was a large accummilation of card board dust in the primer channel at the bottom of the base unit. I used a Q-Tip saturated in One Shot case lube and cleaned out the primer channel and allowed the One Shot to completely dry. I also ran some through all of the primer channels and lightly coated the bottom of the primer plate, wiped off the excess and let it all dry. On my next attempt Federal small pistol primers filled my tube in less than a minute and i have ran over 5000 primers since without a hiccup. I also backed off of the screws under the plate a quarter turn each. I am very happy with how this works now and it will run out the last primer in the hopper without any problem what so ever. Pledge may work for this but i didn't have any so Pro Shot case lube was what i had onhand. It works also. Pro Shot dries quickly and forms and very good layer of slick, clean lubricant for the primers to travel on. I also put some on the ramp and now the primers are flying into the tube. I will purchase another and if i could give it more than 5 stars i would. Great product once you figure things out.

I was a little worried when I purchased the Primer Pro Collator. The early reviews showed problems with some of the primer brands. Luckily it looks like they have worked out all of the problems as mine has been nearly perfect. I have ran CCI and Winchester SR and SP primers through the machine and only had a few come out upside down (around 3k primers). Overall it is a much better system then anything else I have tried and the cost has disappeared from my mind as soon as I started loading with it. Only negative is the machine always leaves a couple of primers left after filling the tube. These have to be cleaned out after I finish loading. As I typically load 500 to 1k at a time, this isn't a big problem as cleaning out 4 or 5 primers after loading 500rds is minor.

This is a great product at a reasonable price! I have now loaded over 15,000 rounds since receiving my DAA Primer-Pro Collator. I have had only one reversed primer which might have been the result of a bad transfer to my Dillon. Have have two of the Dillion primer collators. They are noisy and very difficult to set-up. The Dillon is good at collating large primers but with small primers it is not consistent enough for my needs. Here are the negatives, none of which I found to be a serious problem: 1) The angle of the hopper requires you to be diligent when loading to avoid spillage. Some type of a funnel would be nice. 2) The angle of the collating tube requires you to locate at the edge of a bench. 3) The last one or two primers generally do not drop into the collating tube. All three of these negatives are the result of design compromises which, considering the accuracy of the device and its low costs, I probably would made the same concessions. Finally, all collating tubes are not the same. I found that many of my Dillon tubes did not work with the same consistency. That's on Dillion NOT DAA

I bought one of these when they were first released. It came and I spent 4 hours trying to get it to feed primers. It would not do it. I tried CCI, Tulammo and Winchester. Nothing worked in it and tech support could not tell me how to get it to work. I returned it and they gave me a refund.. Now on 7 - 2020 I decided to try one again. I received it 8-6-2020. Right out of the box if fed CCI primers problem free. So I tried Tulammo which happens to be the "stickiest" primers I have and they still fed through it although really slow. I tried wiping the bowl down with pledge and ran a cotton swab moistened with pledge through the slots the primers slide into and Tulammo primers started feed as well as the CCI primers did. In another video, I saw someone tumble his primers in a box that was sprayed with silicone spray. I am not sure I want to coat my primers with silicone spray as wouldn't that defeat the friction fit in the case a bit? The plastic construction still gives it a fragile feel.

Works 100% out of the box with cci primers. Federal and winchester have varying anvil heights causing feeding issues. Per the instructions included I loosened off the screws and win primers fed 100% federal about 80%. With nothing to actually space the plates apart i cut strips of printer paper and put in screw holes between the 2 plates to keep the assembly ridgid. You can then adjust the spacing by compressing the strips of paper and it holds the spacing. Bought a second one, stuck paper in right out of the box and it runs 100%. A very thin paper-like ring with the bolt spacing could be included with it for minimal money.

Instructions are vague on how to address the problem of the unit not picking up and delivering the primers. Trouble shooting refers to this as the unit is "slow". to fix, you need to loosen the screws holding the plates together. I did, very slightly, and it improved the performance on Federal primers. Great product.

I can get it to work pretty well, but I have to keep tuning it... I just want it to work all the time. I’m only in 6000 rounds, will I stick with it when I reach 20,000 by the end of the year... time will tell.

I tried something different, I used Dry case neck lube, graphite, and brushed it around inside the collator bowl, and on the ramp. After 2,000+ primers, I had to do the ramp again with the neck lube, just a small amount. It loads all 100 primers in under a minute. He just needs to come up with one that will do large primers, maybe with a swap-able bowl, for both large pistol, and another large rifle. I have a Dillon unit, and one time it works, next time it don't. Very disappointed in it, with this one you won't be.
