    $20 bullet feeder...

    $20. and the Hornady bullet feeder die equals a little more speed.
    1. Using ½" CPVC pipe and fittings. I was going to glue one of those ¾ to ½ adapters to the end of each tube but wound up mounting one to the die and just sticking the tube in it each time.
    2. Little wooden pegs are just to close the end of the tube up. Each tube holds 50 bullets. Roll the bullets over to the edge of the table, like at the bottom left of the first picture, put the tube at the pointy end while holding the last one and they just scoop right in! I used the safety pin type fastener to hold the bullets in because they are easier for me to grab and to keep track of.
    3. Start of the stabilizing frame.
    4. All finished, except for adjusting the die.
    5. First 50 9mm, hot off the press!:D
    All parts were bought at Lowes.
