Mr Bullet Feeder Stand on 650


Recommended Posts

So I got tired of upside down bullets and the bullet feeder going out of adjustment. Took it off the case feeder. So I kind of Texas engineered this stand together out of Home Depot parts. Works like a champ. Now it is stable and not affected by vibrations when pulling the handle. Took less than an hour. 

 

4' piece of 1" black gas pipe

1" IP threaded galvanized floor flange

3-- 2" SS hose clamps

1" -- 2-hole strap

piece of PVC block between Bullet feeder & pipe to level

Rick makes a bracket for it with u-bolts so that you can bolt it to a pipe mount.  Works great. only downside is you can see the bracket has a channel that it fits in flush, so it fixes the angle of your MBF.

Mine works perfect with the bracket.

Being a plumber by trade I had everything laying around our warehouse and the cost was next to nothing. Spur of the moment. Kind of got aggravated when the unit moved for the umpteenth time and started giving me problems. Hose clamps were sort of temporary to see how it all works. Going to leave it as I don't want to mess with success.

I have been using the bullet feeder for a month or so and haven't had any problems. 

 My press is mounted very solid and has no movement when I am loading ammo. 

 The more the press moved the more the bullet feeder swings around. 

 

I have the bullet feeder mounted on the right of the case feeder

My 650 is mounted super solid to the bench. Bench is mounted to the wall. So no movement other than when you work the handle. Using the hanger mounted to the left side of the plastic case feeder never seemed like a great idea no matter how tight I got those 2 little 10mm bolts digging into the plastic. The case feeder vibrates and moves.

 

Worked fine for the first year or so with 15K/20K thru it. Then started loosening slightly & moving, Would re-tighten, last for awhile and vibration would cause it to move. Angle of the bullet feeder would change & and adjustments would move slightly and increase upside down feeds.

 

Not any more.

I did something similar with black pipe fittings, then a couple weeks ago replaced those with some stainless parts and an adapter I welded up.  Now I can adjust (or remove) the feeder with a single screw.

That looks great. Did this take away all vibration and movement from the casefeeder? And are you running this setup on a 650 or 1050 on the right hand side?

Yes, it did.  I also built a new bench that's bolted to the wall and floor.  So everything is solid, and running great.  I'm using the bullet feeders with old-style RL1050s and the feeders are mounted directly behind the posts for the case feeders.  I think they're about 14 or 15 inches back (center to center).  The height and location of the bullet feeder is important because if you don't have enough slack in the spring tube, you end up with some resistance at the dropper, and that results in multiple bullets with each pull.  The spring tube has to be pretty slack for the dropper to work properly.
