The current design of the new XL750 does not allow the bullet dropper to be positioned in station #4 of the toolhead because of the angle at which the powder Dispenser bar extends directly towards it. This means the bullet dropper MUST be positioned immediately after the powder dropper, in station #3. That makes it impossible to use a Powder-Check AND a bullet dropper at the same time.
We will attempt to come up with a solution to allow the powder dropper to be rotated to another angle to resolve this issue, but at the moment, be aware of this issue.
Based on the success of the Mr. Bullet Feeder by DAA, DAA has now launched a new more economical version of the original Mr. Bullet Feeder. The new Mini Mr. Bullet Feeder by DAA uses a 6-tube magazine system which holds roughly 100 bullets. It feeds into the same reliable dropper die assembly as used on the Mr.Bulletfeeder by DAA.
Each magazine of bullet tubes needs to be manually filled by hand before reloading begins, similar to the way a primer tube is filled before starting the reloading process. After a little practice, it will take approximately 2 minutes to fill the tube assembly. This can be done in advance of the reloading process to save time. Additional tube assemblies can be purchases separately (or as a bundle), thus allowing you to pre-load 300, 400 or more bullets before starting a reloading session.
While reloading, the bullets will drop down in the transparent tube, as they feed into the dropper-die assembly. Once a tube is empty, you simply rotate and click the next tube into place and keep reloading. Transition to the next tube takes just a second or two. Once the entire 6-tube magazine is empty, either reload it by hand, or drop your 2nd assembly into place to continue reloading without delay.
The Mini Mr.Bulletfeeder by DAA can be used on any progressive reloading machine which uses the same size dies as Dillon, however please note that the powder funnel supplied with the Mini Mr.Bulletfeeder by DAA is designed to be used ONLY in the Dillon powder drop! If you wish to use the Mini Mr.Bulletfeeder by DAA with another press, you may need to purchase elsewhere another powder funnel to expand the brass.
NOTE: That the bullet feeder does require a station on the tool head, direcly after the powder dropper.
DAA has found it is difficult to use the Mini Mr.Bulletfeeder on a 1050 when a powder check is being used in the following station. This has to be with the angle in which the powder dropper sits, forcing the bullet dropper to rotate further away, over the next station. This is an issue only on a 1050
The Mini Mr. Bulletfeeder includes:
1 x 6-Tube Bullet Magazine Assembly
1 x Dropper Die Assembly
1 x Expanding powder funnel (Dillon compatible)
3 x Spare Steel Ball-Bearings for Dropper
1 x User Instruction Sheet
Please note: Mr.Bullet feeders and Mini Mr.BF are usually shipped with our Dillon Powder funnel. If you wish us to swap that out for a Hornady funnel when shipping – we can do so for you - request that at time of ordering. Or, separately purchase your Hornday expanding powder funnel here
