Mr. Bullet Feeder Pro Not Dropping

Recommended Posts

I did a search, but I have not found anyone with this issue.  I have a Mr. Bullet Feeder Pro that came with the Mark 7 Revolution I bought to load 9mm.  I had a regular Mr. Bullet feeder on  my dillon 650 that works fine, but I'm having major issues with the pro version.  The issue i'm having is that it will only feed 6 bullets and then stop.  The bullets above the dropper won't drop down.  I'm loading Zero 124g FMJ so the bullets are staggered in the drop tube.  Now the funny thing is this is only with the Pro version of the dropper.  If I use the Aluminum drop assembly from the standard Mr. Bullet feeder it all works fine.  I was thinking of polishing the top portion of the dropper as I can see some tool marks and thought the bullets might be hanging on there.  Anyone else have this issue?

I had one with a bad MBF die (they had a bad run).  It was machined badly on the inside and wouldn't allow bullets to drop down from the dropper assembly.  Call DAA and ask them to replace it.

Thanks.  I forgot to say I also bought a 2nd 9mm Pro dropper assembly and it has the same problem.  I thought I might have gotten a bad one, but now both droppers have the same issue.

Quick update.  DAA never got back with me so I decided to fix it myself.  I polished it up with a Dremel and now it seems to be feeding OK.

Well I was wrong about it feeding.  Now is just stops after 15-30 rather than 6.  Highly disappointed.  Is anyone running a Pro model with 124g zero FMJ bullets?

I'm having the same problem, even after polishing the die to within an inch of it's life.  The dropper tube will still fail to drop every 10th bullet or so, and the bullets that do drop won't fall into the case mouth reliably.  The funnel seems to be adjusted properly.  It's getting pretty frustrating.
