You may have noticed that retailers have finally started stocking the new Hornady Bullet Feeder for pistol reloading. This is an exciting release, because this is the first bullet feeder that’s the same “color” as the corresponding press and electric case feed system that it’s designed to work with.
I have actually spent some time with a pre-production prototype of this system by testing it in my studio (in fact, the same unit that was shown at last year’s SHOT show…) and can tell you that it is packed with great features. This will be my first experience with a production unit, so I’m really looking forward to trying it out. One of the most interesting features of this bullet feeder kit is the two-piece metal collet system in the dies. More on that later! Like every piece of equipment, it has its strengths and weaknesses, but I like what I’ve seen so far, and I know from talking with the guys at Hornady that they made several improvements for the production version.
While I’m really busy with the AR-MPR project, I’m still going to try and bring you all a video here soon showing it in action on the Lock-N-Load (we’ll save interoperation with other presses for later…).
What caliber do you guys want to see it feeding bullets for?
