You need to tune your RF100. Adjust the upward pointing screw at the top; and adjust th angle of the clear plastic guide to match your primer type. Suble differences in primers require tweaks.

 

I tuned that thing like I was tuning up a 1957 Les Paul.  It's working now, but not as smooth as the other one.  The rheostat is janky as well.  QC apparently varies on the RF100.  I'm just giving hope for those who have been victim shamed when they get a bad one.  Some come ready to rock, but others not so much.

I'm a vibra prime user as well, and probably won't change.I'm quite certain I can fill 3 tubes in the time it takes the Mark7 to consume one.

 

I can consume a tube of primers in <= 3 minutes, and my RF100 is a pour in primers, press go-and-forget operation.  I don't miss filling primer tubes in advance.

How'd you fix the flipped primer issue in the RF100 as that is the source of my flipped primer issue.

 

Good question. I read somewhere that getting the RF100 level or SLIGHTLY tilted forward would fix the problem. Also I have it on a bench that is absolutely solid, no vibration from the RF100 or other stuff. Also do not over vibrate the RF100 itself.

 

When I started I had 1-2 % flipped primers. I now have 0 flipped primers. 

 

Level or 1-2 degrees forward tilt

Minimum RF100 vibration to get the job in less than 2 minutes

Strong support bench

 

No (zero) flips. I do run Federal or CCI 500 primers. I can't vouch for the operation of other brands.

I run the same primers, and have a solid bench, but I do not have the 1 degree tilt. I'll give that a try.

Do CCI, S&B, and Fedrals seem to run more cleanly through an RF100 than Winchesters?

(Asking the other members who have loaded Wins)

I ask because my VibraPrime gulps down those three brands like pornstars in a gangbang video, but chokes like Shaquille O'Neal at the free throw line when I try to feed it Winchesters. They're not nearly as consistently sized as CCI/S&B/Fed
I won an IDPA match once. It was neat.

I have also found the Winchester primers to be somewhat uncooperative. It seemed to me that the edges might have a little more bite to them causing them not to slide as freely. Also a vibra prime user.

Doodie: Drops thousands on a Mark7.  Bitches about wasting a nickel per thousand rounds loaded.

 

 

There's probably pages of 'tuning your RF-100' over on Enos to read through, but they load Winchesters fine.

He still sometimes gets an upsidedown primer that he misses during QC.

 

That makes a lot of sense, Matt.

Doodie wants a 0% failure rate for a machine that is producing 0% failures for other Doodies.

B Anus glad handling forum is best left to those that want to 'race to some class', need help to 'stop gobbling', or folks that value 'PC communications' over freedom of speech. I've moved on....

I had the same experience with a VibraPrime and Winchester primers. As a result I don't buy them so I can't comment on your question.

Update on gehtto 650 mark 7: my machine is running at 1k an hour and can go faster. While it runs, I dryfire or get ready to restock it. I hardly have to monitor it...
