    New to the site I know, but reloading a while. I bought a new 650. I used a Grabber before. When the resizer gets dirty or apiece of shot in it, it jams up up the whole works. Then you need to clean it, but other than that its double stroking the handle if it jams. Then you just may have added more powder to your charge. It may take me longer over all to load shells because of time spent resizing seperatly, but I have never had a bad shell from my 650.

    I have a grabber that I load my singles shells with and a old 650 I load my handicap shells with. I like them both and don't notice much difference when loading shells. I bought the grabber cheap. I only use one trap gun so I really don't need to resize anyway. I clean the resizer when I think about it which is not very often and it works fine. Hope this helps. By the way my grabber is an older 761R.

    The 8567 has the newer taller base(primers don't stick under it and jam the lifter) and plastic dies.

    The 761 has the lower, older base, and has metal dies.

    The 8567 is easier to put on an Auto-mate, if you choose to do so in the future.
    Either loader is a good loader. I use both models.

    The collet on a 8567 is easier to adjust and will re-size high brass hulls.

    The 761R will only re-size low brass hulls.
