Noisy Dillon case feeder ... sound muffler?


Recommended Posts

Wasn't there just a thread about this?  I bought a 14" disc from a plastics store and spray glued foam from a fabric store.  To Sarge's point, my hopper often runs out of cases.  But the trade off is I reload into the late hours.

I need the noise. When it gets quiet something’s wrong with it. Either jammed or empty.

I folded up an old towel and laid it on the top. If it is big enough with enough hanging over the sides it will not interfere with the brass. It keeps the brass noise down and also deadened the noise coming from the sides of the plastic hopper.

Are all case feeders that noisy ?

 

Or just Dillon's ?


Hornady is even noisier.

I have wrapped my case feeders in:
1. Silent Coat butyl noise dampening mat: https://www.silentcoat.co.uk/collections/frontpage/products/silent-coat-2mm-deadening-mat

2. Closed structure foam mat, something like: https://www.silentcoat.co.uk/collections/isolator

 

Also put a lid on it.

Helps also Mr Bulletfeeder noise.

This is true, on my hornady before I switched it was very loud. When I finally got my 1050 up and running I was startled by how quiet it was.

I tried putting a tight fitting cardboard lid on top. It did not make much difference in quieting it down. I think most of the noise is coming from the large blue tub itself. I am going to look for some sound deadening foam and try that next.

Could even get a foot pedal to turn it on/off. So you can keep your hands where it matters...

 

I use a foot pedal for this, as well as for motorized case trimming.  Sometimes I have background TV (The Sopranos) on while I'm reloading or trimming, so the moments of silence in between loudness are good.  If I'm listening to music, I don't bother with the foot pedal, and just turn up the music.  I do recommend giving this a whirl as a partial solution.
