    I'm going to guess not many are going to jump on a $240 primer tube filler.

    It is weird that there was a vibra-prime sold by midway for $50 and they discontinued it, seems to be a market for them. I'd buy one at that price.

    $240 for a ribbed piece of plastic with a hole in the corner to slip-fit a primer tube? You could make one of those from anybody's primer flip tray, a couple of popsicle sticks, and some silicone sealant.

    Paid $19.95 for mine. It ain't a Dillon, but I got what I paid for.

    Is it Italian?

    Are you sure the seller has not got the monetary conversion calculated wrong? Or maybe the price is in Lira (surely not Euros)?

    For that price, it should seat them in the brass.

    The Dillon is now over $300.

    $300, and being electronic it is not covered by the no BS warranty.

    There is a guy on castboolits selling his verion of the vibra prime for $49. If I was going to, I'd go that way.

    Do yourself a favor and save your money. I blew 50.00 bucks on one already.

    I was kind of thinking along those lines already. I don't horribly mind filling primer tubes from my flip tray. I have plenty of tubes.
    Maybe if I had to turn out a couple thousand rounds in a day once a week by some obligation.

    I think the $240 one here and the $300+ Dillon are insanely priced. I don't fault anyone for feeling the need if they must, though.

    I agree they are overpriced,but I load commercially- so I need something. The vibra-prime would have suited us just fine, but they are no longer to be had.
    I figure I'll use rechargeable batteries and order several Dillon and Hornady tubes.

    Wish I'd bought several Vibra-Primes when I got mine. I've been using it for several years and many thousands of rounds, and it still works. I just not going to pay what Dillon wants for a machine that does the same thing. Actually, I like the way the Vibra-Prime works better than the Dillon.

    Maybe Dillon bought the rights to Vibra-Prime, in order to make sure it was off the market?? :evil:
