We don’t use dryer sheets and I know my neighbor does but I don’t want them to think I’m weird asking for them. Lol
Oh have I got responses for that one but I don't want to get in trouble. I've been told if I don't open my mouth the words won't fall out so I think I'm going to tie my hands behind my back to keep my fingers out of trouble.

Anybody here use the Hornady Bullet Feeder Die.
Just got it today.

Yep been using those bullet feeder dies for 9mm and 38 for a long time.
When I bought them I did need to "adjust" the fingers because I feed coated bullets thru them.
While I was in there, I de-burred the fingers too to get 100% function.
I pre-fill tubes before I start loading though, each tube holds 50+ bullets and I have to stop after 100 rounds to add primers.
Um, just know that I "modify" everything though,

I have a sky hook above the press to support the tubing:

Actually no, back then no one was selling bullet tubes, I bought the plastic tubes from this aquarium supply website.
Tubes were WAY CHEAPER then....
And now there's this 3D printed stuff:

Those tubes are semi-ridged and need that high support to keep them from bending/kinking.
I have since bought tubes sold be Lee, could be for their case feeder though.
I have read where the Lee 4 tube case feeder can be adopted the Hornady bullet feeder die.

I never warmed up the aluminum tubes because they need a slot to see the bullet level.
