I could ask on BEnos, but here the replies will be more acidic and asinine. And that’s more my speed.

I just bought a Mr Bulletfeeder for my 650 in 9mm. Will be fed blackbullets in 125gr TC.

Which YouTube videos do I watch, or which posts do I read from top to bottom, in order to get this thing running flawlessly?

I’ve heard the M-die powder funnel is the tits for running a Bulletfeeder?

People say that but the bullet feeder flare die is like an m die.

Don't worry, it's so easy a caveman mechanic from Memphis can do it!

Watch the double alpha videos, fuck everything else. Then spend 20 minutes standing on a chair tweaking the bullet feeder.

If you stand where you can actually look into the thing as it operates you will immediately understand how to move the thing on the back so it flips the bullets that need flipped and doesn't flip the ones that don't (seriously).

This is the most important step to avoid upside down bullets:

 

Followed by the endless adjustment of the bullet drop die so it 1) drops a bullet and 2) doesn't drop two bullets. Small adjustments at a time.

not to mention doing it while standing on a 12' ladder.

Thanks all.

My bench is more than stout enough to park a car on, let alone stand on. I’ll keep a short stepladder in front of it so I can eyeball things. Sounds pretty straightforward.

I suppose all the threads seen on various forums about dialing the MBF in ... boil down to the same thing as every other topic:

People are asking stupid questions, rather than RTFM.
