Mr. Bulletfeeder FAQ

Got questions about the Mr. Bulletfeeder? The FAQ list below may contain the answers to your questions.

Q: Where do I install the Mr. Bulletfeeder Bullet Dropper on an RL 550B?
A: On a Dillon RL 550B press, you must install the Bullet Dropper in Station 3. Since Station 3 is normally for the Seat die, you must install a combination Seat/Crimp die in Station 4.*
* A combination Seat/Crimp die is not included with Mr. Bulletfeeder and must be purchased separately. Combination Seat/Crimp dies are available from most die manufacturers.

Q:  Where do I install the Mr. Bulletfeeder Bullet Dropper an XL 650?
A: On a Dillon XL 650 press, you have two options on where you can install the Bullet Dropper.
Option 1: Install the Bullet Dropper in Station 3, which is normally for the Powder Check die. You will then be able to retain the separate Seat and Crimp dies in Stations 4 and 5.
Option 2: Install the Bullet Dropper in Station 4, which is normally for the Seat die. You will then be able to retain the Powder Check die in Station 3 but must install a combination Seat/Crimp die in Station 5.*
* A combination Seat/Crimp die is not included with Mr. Bulletfeeder and must be purchased separately. Combination Seat/Crimp dies are available from most die manufacturers.

Q: Can I use lead cast bullets?
A: Yes. Lead cast bullets are no problem.

Q: Can I use lubed bullets?
A: Yes. But wax based lubes are recommended as they transfer less lube to the Mr. Bullerfeeder parts. Soft greasy lubes (e.g. Alox) are not recommended as they will transfer more lube faster and require very frequent cleaning.
You can reduce lube transfer significantly by dusting lubed bullets with white motor mica before loading.
Lube residue can be removed using UniqueTek Premium Firearms Cleaner™.

Q: Can I load .380 Auto or 9mm 105gn Truncated Cone FP bullets?
A: Yes. But these short bullets may not feed smoothly through the Output Assembly that comes standard with pistol caliber bullet feeders. Instead, order a Rifle (small) Output Assembly, which is a smaller diameter.

Q: Can I load the .357 SIG Cartridge?
A: Yes. The .357 SIG uses the same 0.3555" diameter bullet as the 9mm cartridge, so the 9mm/.38 Caliber Bullet Dropper will work just fine. And there is plenty of room inside the bullet dropper to accommodate the larger (0.424") case diameter. As one customer reported, It "works like a charm".

Q: Can I use Mr. Bulletfeeder on a Hornady LNL AP Press?
A: Yes. Mr. Bulletfeeder works great on a Hornady Lock-N-Load® AP™ press. But if you are loading pistol cartridges, you will need a Mr. Bulletfeeder Powder Through Expander (PTX™) of the appropriate caliber. The shape of the Mr. Bulletfeeder PTX is optimized for the Mr. Bulletfeeder bullet dropper. Mr. Bulletfeeder Powder Through Expanders are available here.
