    It works perfectly just as all Dillon products do. However in my opinion the price of the unit does not justify purchasing just to save a few minutes. This primer filling unit is more suitable to a high volmue or commercial loader. I'd just buy a few more primer tubes and take the extra five minutes loading them manually. Reloading is supposed to be fun and relaxing...why be in such a hurry? :confused:

    I agree with readr1 (I have two of them), but unfortunately the Vibra Prime is no longer available. Right now I think the Dillon RF-100 is the only Primer Tube Filler currently available.

    my opinion is the opposite of loadedround's.

    the dillon product works OK, and it was worth the money to me.

    I have one and it is hit or miss on upside down primers. I have tried the different setups from the manual but still a few going the wrong way that jam the 550B primer system every tube. I had a Vibraprime and gave it away. I could never get it to work 100% like the manual pickup method and I can't get the Dillon to be perfect either. I have just accepted that I can't get these things to work and moved on. :)

    The vibraprime I had worked great for large primers and, if you held your tongue just right, ok for small primers. My Dillon ran far too long so I adjusted it for a shorter duration run time as it is quite loud. In the time it takes to fill the primer tube I can load 25 rounds, so it does make the whole process faster.
