    Can you just dump the hulls in the holder or do they have to all be "set" down in a specific direction in order to feed correctly.

    Not only is he using the P/W Shell Feeding system, he is using the P/W Patriot handle.

    Cool.

    The whole thing appears to be a modified PW shell feeder. He should sell a lot of them. I hope they work better than the PW. Price?

    You didn't see it on Spolar's site because it appears it is not made by Spolar. It is made by another individual for the Spolar loader.

    I am amazed at how some thinks this is something new. If you look at it it is the same thing PW has been using for years. If the truth were known he probably buys them from PW or better yet, may work for them. I cant believe it took someone this long to come up with one.

    He may be selling them to PW. I doubt PW designed it to begin with.

    I think it is an idea that is long overdue. For whatever reason the Spolar's have shunned the idea for a good long time? It does complicate life if things go sideways. Not sure it would be any faster, but sure would be easier.

    I have inquired to testing with power drive units. Did anyone notice the the hull dies are missing, and the shell feeder is simply pushing a hull into a very large generic opening where the die should go?

    It seems rather obvious this is a modified PW hull feeder, mounted on the left side. I looks like it would work slick assuming everything is lining up and stays that way. When I have had PW hull feeders, the major problem was STS varying in length enough to hang at the top when they would run a tad long. Nitro and others fed great on a more consistent basis.

    Still no price and the maker has not responded to emails. It is a great idea but they need to communicate to interested buyers.
