    I'm looking at buying either the Hornady or RCBS bullet feeder here in the future for a new press (Likely an RCBS Pro 2000 auto advance.) I'll eventually get, as bullet handling always been the part of progressive reloading I hated.

    Has anyone had the opportunity to try both feeders and if so, what did they like/dislike about one vs. the other?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    For my needs I'd prefer the RCBS if I had to settle for one or the other. It has the ability to feed .224 bullets for my .223/5.56mm loading. The Hornady rifle kit is "Coming Soon" which can mean real soon or maybe not.

    Personally I'd rather spring for the extra bucks and go for the K.I.S.S. Feeder now known as the "Mr Bullet Feeder". They have kits for popular pistol as well as the common high volume rifle calibers of .223 and .308.

    Don't you have to buy another complete feeder to get the rifle bullet feeding ability from RCBS? I know their pistol bullet feeder comes with three dies for three popular calibers, but what about getting just the die once you have a collator?
