Combo: PRIMAFILL and DAA Primer Pickup Tubes - 5 Pack
After many frustrating hours, I finally got my Dillon RF100 primer tube filler to work perfectly with CCI SP and SR primers. Not wanting change the settings for LR and not wanting to buy a second RF100 paperweight for LR, I decided to give this machine a try.
It definitely takes some finesse and is not quite as "set it and forget it" as the Dillon (while working). However, this machine does work right out of the box and requires no adjustment. I purchased some 8mm vinyl end caps and used those in place of the plastic pick up tips on the primer tubes. There really is no need for pick up tips when using a primer filler. Also, Dillon primer tubes work perfectly with machine.
Pros for this machine are its ease of use, versatility switching back and forth between large and small primers, and cost effectiveness.
Cons are you still have to flip the primers before using, the lid does not lock down, and this is not a set and forget unit like the Dillon.
Overall, I like this unit very much and will continue to use it exclusively for large primers. I do not shoot the same volume of large primer cartridges as I do small primers. Therefore, the extra time spent is of little consequence.
If I had an extra RF100 dialed in for large primers, I'd probably prefer to use that. However, in terms of saved money and frustration, this little machine is very hard to beat.
