This unit does what it claims, but in my opinion, is way overpriced for what it is. I think maybe if I was spending this much, I should have just bought the pro model. As others have said, you’ll need to place above a bucket or something to catch the cases but that isn’t a big deal. I have the conversions for 9mm, 10mm, and .223 with my primary intended use being .223 as occasionally I will get a piece that has issues in one of my rifles and a small base die can’t get the bottom of the case because of the material between it and shell holder or shell plate. The pistol calibers feed pretty well from my Dillon case feeder although you can’t set it and forget it as occasionally one will tip when the die contacts it. This is where I expect the pro model with its pusher would work better. The rifle cases are far more prone to tipping and jamming up the unit as they’re smaller on the base along with taller. If the unit had a rheostat and the user could turn the speed down, that would likely help. For most reloaders this is simply too expensive to see value and for those that shoot enough to justify it, I’d probably steer toward the pro model as this one is way too expensive in comparison.

Got to say this is a nice addition of equipment to my operation for reloading ,

I was having problems with some of my reloads bulging at the base such that they would'nt guage. With the cost of primers now I hated to discard them just to keep these reliable. this product is expensive but I have now run several thousand rounds through it with great success and 100% reliability in my guns. Can't imagine that I didn't have it before.
Double Alpha had it in stock and shipped immediately. Great to do business with them!
By the way, this machine does run hot for the first couple of hour or so until the motor brushes and worm gear box seat in but not a problem, Follow the instructions. Great addition to my reloading routine.

Works perfect. If you reload used brass roll sizing is a must. Load drop tube with a Hornady Case Feeder. Puts out a steady stream of load ready brass.

My unit shipped without the power block. I contacted Rollsizer directly to get a replacement for the missing power block. Even though they are located in Australia, the responded to my request within hours and have a new power block to me within three days. Excellent customer service!
I have been using the system for about a month now and rolled on the order of 8,000 9mm and 3,000 40S&W. The unit has worked perfectly and I have no more issues with the Glock bulge on my cases. I particularly saw that with the 40S&W cases. It is an excellent product and as long as speed is not a critical factor go with this system. 1000 cases an hour is fine for my need as a hobbyist.

Practical shooters: if you have become terminally frustrated dealing with bulged cases (.40 S&W, 9mm, etc.), this little machine may be the answer to your prayers. It's absolutely DISMAL when your high-output reloading setup sits idle, while you get old cranking one piece of brass at a time through a push-through die with a single-stage press! The Mini Roll Sizer not only removes the bulge, it does so with amazing speed and virtually no effort. Connect the Roll Sizer to your case feeder with the supplied flexible tube - then sit back and enjoy your favorite beverage while more than 1,300 healed cases per hour drop into your collection bin! OK, it's not cheap - but put one of these to work in your reloading room and you'll have a very difficult time getting the grin off your face! Many thanks to Mr. Kevin Whitehead (from Australia), who developed this little jewel.

I’ve roll-sized about 1,000 pieces of 9mm brass so far, and this product has completely eliminated rejects due to bulged cases. It was easy to set-up, and simple to use. I set it up on a shelf below and beside my XL650, and the case feeder funnels cartridges directly to the unit. Roll-sized brass drops into a bucket while I do other tasks. It adds another step to brass prep, but it’s worth it to avoid loaded cartridges that failed my case gauge.

This product does what it is designed to do. I wish I had purchased it sooner.
Pros: After over 5,000 cases run through it I have detected no "Glock Bulges". I chamber block test 100% of my loads.
Cons: 1) Somewhat difficult to set-up. I assume the manufacturer intended the Rollsizer to be used next to your press using the press mounted case feeder. This did not work for me so I built a separate bracket for the case feeder. 2) There is no provision for an output bin or chute. Again, I assume the manufacturer intended the brass to fall into a bucket below the Rollsizer. I purchased a DAA Output Chute and Spring, made a bracket to avoid brass missing the bucket which will happen. 3) Be sure to adjust the feed tube so that 38 Super Comp brass will feed. If you don't the 38 Super Comp can bend the feed tube bracket. 4) While the motor, transmission and roller machining is very good the base bracket and electrical portions are primitive. At these prices I expected a little more refinement.
I repeat, however, the product does what its supposed to do and I do recommend it to others.

cant say enough about this little machine.. If you are a serious pistol shooter and reload, then you need this. Nothing worse then being at a match right in the middle of a string and that bulged round wont go into battery, worse getting stuck there for costing you that stage and the match. Say good by to that now, an affordable "Automated", yes dump the brass in your 650's hopper and your off to the races.. Mine roll 24 brass a minute that's 1440 saami spec cases an hour.. Its small compact, not much room was lost, and super easy to use.. it's definitely one of those toys you need in you reloading room..Oh 1 more thing it's built like a tank it will be passed down many generations, I'm sure
