    I have heard good things about the Model B but was wondering if this model is also good and can do a good capacity of brass. I have a frankford arsenal right now and looking to upgrade.

    Never used one of those particular ones. I have a 30 year old Model B that's still going strong though. The one you're looking at appears to have a smaller capacity by 20%.

    "...if this model is also good and can do a good capacity of brass."

    Just to make sure we're on the same planet, about how many cases of what calibers constitute a 'good capacity' at your house?

    IF you figger 40 cal, 100 = 1lb and you add 3 lb walnut
    ar12, 12 lb cap
    model B 15 lb cap
    Three lb differance = 300 cases more in model B
