It does what it's supposed to do with the v2 plate, but the build quality is horrible. Feels very cheaply made.

DAA: Sorry you feel that way about the build. the only way to keep costs down is injection moulded plastic. perhaps that was not the material you were expecting? the...

Works good just slow, I will try and use some pledge as shown in a video. It doesn't flip primers or jam up like the dillon I have so that is a plus.

I had to make some adjustments to avoid some jamming but this was well described in the instructions. Some primer brands might work better than others. I'm now using only CCI. Hopefully they will be able to handle large primers in the future

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.

Big picture one wonders why this unit took so long to show up. Keep it clean and your primer handling time is reduced very greatly.

Had no issues with it till I tried Winchester primers, only took 300 of them and it just stopped feeding. 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...

Great product well worth the money. Little finicky with Winchester primers. DAA has the fix though check the video. Fills a tube in about a minute with 100 primers every time. I have used with Remington, Federal and Winchester primers. Get one you won't regret it.

Okay, $199+ is a ton of money to spend on a device like this, my argument was I can buy a ton of reloading supplies for that amount! But, being the Mr. Gizmo type, I love toys so I bought one. After a bad start, the collator did not want to run properly, I called tech support. Some cleanup and...

This is the best money spent on reloading gear! Little funky due to the angled primer tube. I built a wood stand I clamp in my bench vise and problem solved. Loads primers quickly and shuts off.

DAA PRIMER-PRO Collator

(43)
Manufacturers: Double-Alpha Academy

Description:

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.

DAA: Sorry you feel that way about the build. the only way to keep costs down is injection moulded plastic. perhaps that was not the material you were expecting? the base of the machine is rubber coated, only to increase the quality look and feel. sorry if that disappointed.

Unfortunately it is high maintenance, in my experience. I mainly use Fiocchi primers and the only brand I’ve tried in the 6000 primers I’ve put through this machine. 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.

After a bad start, the collator did not want to run properly, I called tech support. Some cleanup and lubing with Pledge wood cleaner and it runs like a champ! True to the description this thing will load a tube of primers in a minute or less. The last session I was able to load 20 tubes in 30 minutes or so. Highly recommend it if you do a lot of reloading!

I was part of the second-run orders to get this primer filler. It went together easily and when I went to use it for the first time, it would take about 2 min. and 30 sec. to fill a tube. The recommended solution to slow tube filling was to loosen the screws on the back of the drum. I loosened them about 1.5 turns and then it would fill a tube in about a minute. I use the Federal Gold Medal Match small pistol primers and after about 5,000 filled already, there hasn't been a single one upside down. I've always hated the tedious task of sitting and filling primer tubes one primer at a time. If you share my frustration of having to fill primer tubes, get this collator! Now all I need is one primer tube (I used to have 8 filled and ready to go) since I can keep right on reloading once I put the tube in the collator and hit the button to fill it.
