    Easy to operate, easy to install, saves a lot of time.

    I really like mine. I am using the shell feeder on the 800+ also, and after understanding the installation, it works very smoothly. Speed was never my intention, but focus on the task at hand. Not having to concern myself with anything but the wad, I check the primer drop and make sure the last shell in rotation kicked out through my table and into the bucket below the bench.

    While nothing mechanical is perfect, I probably only fix a jam at the top about once every couple of flats when loading. Same with primer drop and once tuned up I think the last loading session I had one primer hang in over 700 reloads.

    All in all, very worthwhile. I would recommend the tool, but suggest if you want to just speed load, don't do it. Far better off making sure all stations are functioning as they should be, then you have better than factory ammo in my opinion.

    I've had mine for about four years now and couldn't imagine loading without it. The only complaints I have heard about them are the price. However, if you take into consideration how much time they save you IMHO they are worth every penny...

    There are some past threads on this subject ... do a search, for some more comments.

    I have one, but never set it up on my PW 2000 as I didn't have room in the old house. I will be setting it up shortly.

    As Fred suggested, contact Whiz White. He is a great guy to deal with. His e-mail address is ... whiz@swsupply.com ... Bill Malcolm

    I use hydraulic (Spolar however with the electronic foot control), large primer tray, Whiz White's oversize depriming tool, brush Whiz sells for station 1, counter, and waiting on the metal replacement for the plastic base when he can ship me one. It produces just the slickest reload, powder drops are very consistent, and crimps are just something beautiful. I switched from AA to STS and Nitro hulls, never to look back at this point.

    With the hydraulic, you just need to pay attention to the stations and primer drop, and place a wad. The rest is pretty automatic. I work hard to slow down to not let the machine over take my brain. Not easy to do, as the machine is fast, brain not so much so.

    And as the others have stated, if you have any issues at all, Whiz is a call or email away. I have never been disappointed in his support, as it is always first class.
