Where's Motosapiens preaching that only poor people pick up used brass and that more people have been killed bending over in Walmart parking lots to pick up a penny than Open shooters blowing up by reloading sketchy brass?

Is the one above better than the other one with the blue fingers?
Picking up 500 cases at the end of a practice is the worst.


The only other bad thing about the nut grabber one is the brass should be orientated in the same position for maximum effectiveness. If you have 9 pieces of brass in a cluster and three are at the 1 o'clock position, three are at 6 o'clock, and three are at 9 o'clock; it will only pick up one of the three groups. If they are all in the same orientation all 9 are swept easily. A quick nudge with your foot fixes this problem.

Not sure if the extra $50 for the blue finger thing is worth it - assuming it doesn't have the same limitation.

Dan, the finger one works better on grass and various outdoor surfaces. It's easier to empty too. Just hold over bucket and push the lever thing.

I think the finger version is more better than the roller type.

In an analogy we can all understand the wire roller is the ammobot and the blue finger one is mk7.

Thanks Richard. I'd mainly use it on concrete I reckon.

Fuck. Internet anonymity erased!

Ps. The roller thing works ok on concrete. The finger thing is a bit more versatile I reckon.

True- but in grass or light woodchip it can work okay, works best on dirt. Still experimenting with speeds/pressure to pick up the most.

It absolutely grabs rock and debris and won't sort by material or caliber. I do a quick caliber sort and dump everything that makes it in a wet tumbler, and whatever is in there that I don't reload becomes extra media to help clean. I don't bother pulling the brass from the other stuff until it's done drying-spread out already and easier to work with.
