Pimp my bullet feeder

Postby Südhesse » 13 Dec 2019 09

Hi,
Sometimes I had the problem, that heavy bullet were falling out of the claws or bevel based bullets were not transported.
I found out, that giving the claws more tension solves my problems.
I took a spring from a clothes peg, heated the ends to bend them and drill 2 small holes into the claw fingers.
Here are the pictures:

Sorry, if someone already shared a similar idea, I searched the forum and found nothing.
Greetings from Germany

Any good idea is always welcome, whether new or not. Thanks Südhesse
Please be patient with me, my English is very bad and sometimes I use a translator.

Innovative, indeed..
After all these years at handloading, I have just recently started to mess with bullet feeders.
So far, not very impressed ?????? Sure would like to be though??
I'll get it someday, I hope..
Why did it take so long for me to try feeders? Same reason it took me 40 - 45 years
to start casting, I dont know ???

Larry, my issues with the Lee bullet feeders have been little especially since Lee added the simple spring to the feeders. The switch to powder coating cast bullets eliminated bullets getting hung up in the tubes. Jacketed bullets have never given me any problems.
