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.

How is this working out?  I ask because I'm thinking of getting one.

I’ll let you know when he ships it and I get it installed.

The YouTube DAA videos make it look about as hard as making grilled cheese for dinner.

Don't forget the rubber band.....as soon as I realized it was essential all the problems went away. Massively irritating when it drops multiple bullets that promptly jam up the shell plate

Yes - nobody is shaming me out of that.  I did the quality longer term installation of using a hair-tie from the females in the house.

There are two kinds of people in this world with Mr. Bulletfeeder:  those who admit to using rubber bands to make it work and those who take them off before taking the pic they'll post.  

 

There is a type of being that refuses the practical solution and employs field R&D and reality denial to create a personalized "engineered solution" but that's not really "people" at all but rather a meta-geek lifeform that would make even Rain Man say, "just let it go the rubber band is close enough you OCD bastard!  Wapner at 5!"

I stood on a chair and set mine up. Don't hook up the tube and catch the bullets when they fall out. Adjust as necessary until you can go 20 for 20 flipped the right way. It's not hard

Hours of frustration or a $.05 rubber band... Easy choice
