    Simple question. How do you like it? Anything wrong with it? Is it that much better than the Platinum 2000 and 800+?

    I replaced a 800+ with a Patriot and the improvements they made which are many are well worth the extra money. I have mine hooked to auto case feeder and auto drive and it will flat put the shells out. Like it a lot.

    I have a Patriot set up with the auto-drive and case feeder also. I really like the no hull no drop. My son aka "Shell Unloader" inserts the wads now and we run it as fast as it will cycle. Some people say the hydraulic is faster but the auto-drive is smooth and goes about as fast as I think I would want to go anyways.

    Here is a short video of my set-up http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vk2C13G7PVY

    I have Patriot #3 hooked to the hydraulic. Although I am a dealer for these reloaders, I honestly really like the setup.

    The added features, and the different linkage, plus no shot or powder gears make it a helluvamachine.

    They come with all the options so you don't need to order ANY extras.
