I'm updating a review from 11/24/22 where I said primers occasionally don't feed correctly or go in upside down. I figured out it was pilot error so I changed from 4 stars to 5 stars. The tube has to be fully seated in the Primafill. I also had to chamfer the mouth of one primer tube to keep the primers from sticking. I've loaded Federal, CCI and Winchester small pistol primers so far and I am using RCBS, Dillon and FA tubes with the Primafill. They all work very well. This loads 100 primers so fast it's hard to believe. I have loaded about 7000 primers and after I figured out my problem I have not had ANY issues. I would and do highly recommend this to my friends.

I despise filling primer tubes by hand. I purchased this and have only loaded CCI 400s so far BUT it is EASY and FAST. Watch the video, follow the instructions, no problem.

Great little tool. I have a Dillon press and keeping the primer tubes full has always been an issue. This speeds things up incredibly well. Simple to use and very efficient.

I used to insert one primer at a time until I found this! It does take some practice to get the primers to line up and then fall into the tube. Once you get the hang of it, you will be able to fill a tube of 100 primers in less than a minute (including placing the primers onto the tray and shaking them so the anvils are facing up).

Absolutely does not work at all. Using CCI, Win or Fed small pistol primers, I can not get more than 2-3 consecutively to feed down to the tube. I tried holding it at more / less of angle. Even the primer flipping groves surface of this is terrible, there are about 10% that refuse to flip.

Very good tool for the price!! Every once in a while, maybe 1 out if 500, primers go in upside down. Occasionally primers bind up while filling the tube, but this is a dream compared to stabbing primers!

Does a great job. Use a little rocking motion and the primers just slide right on into the tube.

This needs a learning curve to be 90% good. The way you hold the good is important and ease the primers to gently slide to the exit hole. Move the primers to be in line and not on several layers which may create a jam.
The primer which reaches the exit hole may go nearly upside down and needs to be manually set properly. So, I have drilled a small hole just above the hole to introduce a needle to do that. Otherwise, this product is much more efficient than the 100% manual picking and has 1 to 2% upside down position.

This is best primer filler tool I have used. It did not work well with other manufacturer's primer tubes that I first tried but, it works very well with the DA branded tubes. It takes a little practice to learn the hand motions. The videos help with that.

Quick, easy and clean. Hoping they get their fully automatic filler working with large primers.

Works just like they said it should. Beats my Dillon RF 100 in ease of use and reliability. I'd recommend it to my reloading friends.

Works very well. I was able to fill 11 tubes with SPP in less than 30 minutes. The tubes are just as good as Dillon. Very satisfied.

I’ve been using this for about a month now and have loaded about 1700 rounds so far. Worth every penny! It works well with both large and small CCI and Federal primers. Those are the only brands I’ve tried so far. If this one would ever wear out I would not hesitate to buy another one.

Excellent tool to fill primer tubes. Easy to use and reliable. Every hand-reloader should have at least one on their reloading bench.

It works ok. Not great. No upside down primers but they continually get hung up and you have to tap on it as shown. Tried all kinds of angles. Like I said, it’s ok. It has a ledge as primers slide from the left.

Very well made and very good, I replaced a cheaper older gadget from a different company. Old one always struggled with small primers due to size differences, so far this one runs great. A major upgrade for sure. Turns prep time into reloading time.

What a time saver! Just need to find the good angle to see your primers fall in the tube. Great product!

Best primer filler I ever used. I've tried all of them. You won't believe it till you try it.

Good device but not without a couple of flaws.....
1. Make sure you get the later version that uses concentric circles for the flip. The original horizontal ridges didn't work that great.
2. It takes a while to master the motion needed but until then, expect to have to manually flip 2-3 which slows things down.
3. The DAA manual flip tray seems to be better at flipping but it doesn't fit the machine. Maybe a Dremel.
4. Add some small magnets to latch the top on
5. Include a couple of those tube vinyl 'caps' which are basically necessary (that's so cheap of them to not include a couple).
That's all nitpicky. Unit works well and is much faster than chicken pecking.

A simple innovative product. Hold at the correct angle and the primers disappear down the chute. I did have to remove the tiniest bit of flashing right at the edge of the hole.
