Mr. Bullet Feeder does not work properly on XL750?

There is nowhere on this site to e-mail pictures, post pictures, nothing.
I sent issue over form to Dillon yesterday.

When you put Mr. Bullet Feeder die, that Dillon sold me, along with the XL750, Dillon made ZERO mention, that you CANNOT run a powder check when using the Mr. Bullet Feeder. So I had to return my powder check. useless.

This is plain to see, if I could post the pics, why this is. The Mr. Bullet feeder DIE TOTALLY BLOCKS the powder bar from actuating, so you can't load anything. Pull the level, the bar slams into the die, end of story, stop, game over.

SOOO, to fix this, you have to move the Mr. Bullet Feeder die to POS 3. Thus, you cannot run a powder check system, because that would have had to go in POS 3.
You design the XL750 to replace the 650, as its a high volume reloading that supposed to be better. But you cannot run a Mr. bullet feeder AND a powder check, so there is no way to check safety on charge in your high speed reloading operation.

I bought this thing so I could do that. Now I can't do that and I have to go back to eyeballing every single powder charge?

This is a BASIC Accessory many many people add, that works PERFECT on a 650 but NOT on a 750? How come Dillon did not test this? Nobody even thought to put the mr. Bullet feeder die in pos 4 with a powder check before this thing was signed off into mass production?

So Dillon. When you going to make this thing obsolete and come out with a XL750B to replace mine, so i can actually run a powder check system, as the system was designed? I want something that works for my over $2k spent on something.

Also, I would like a brand new Mr. Bullet die tube, 9MM, mailed to me, as before I understood this didn't work, I scratched to hell my brand new tube. I didn't understand why so the opposite of smooth when I pulled the level. 4 pulls later, I figured it out because I am slow. A clue would have been the banging noise. Maybe next customer will learn after 1 pull. and only 1 dent or scratch.

Please test for yourself, then please, place a WARNING on your site, letting people know you cant run feeder in POS 4, you HAVE to run in POS 3, without a powder check system....

Why? Because you angled the powder bar to point nearly directly at the Mr. Bullet feeder die. Not an issue on normal dies, they sit way lower..of course.

Several queries now into Dillon.

They just act arrogant, know it all, do not address issue, and then ignore you.

Customer service 0/10.

Nice way to treat your Military Veterans guys. Great job.

My complaint is that I specifically emailed Dillon prior to purchasing the new 750 and detailed my setup intentions and asked if the mr bullet feeder, with a powder check and dual set and crimp die. I received a response that yes, this setup would be perfectly fine.
Dillon was of course happy to then sell me the 750, the bullet feeder, and all the goodies. Definitely disappointing.
That said, Dillon hasn’t greeted my complaint with arrogance. I’m told they’re aware and working on it. Hope they figure it out soon.

For what it’s worth, I solved this problem by going to a green powder measure (which I had) and a case fed drop assembly (which I also had) and it worked. The 750 loads .38 special and needed the green case expander which I got yesterday. Of course the green won’t use the powder measure alarm because the tube isn’t wide enough but I’ll figure that out soon. When Dillon figures out the solution (and they will), I’ll get the upgrades but for now I’m up and running and loving my Dillon’s.

Does anyone know if Dillon has addressed this issue or is it still ongoing? Was looking to purchase this weekend but I'm glad i researched this issue....

Our engineers sent their observations and potential solutions to Double Alpha. Since the Mr Bulletfeeder is not our product, that is all we can do. It is up to Double Alpha to implement them.

Would using x2 part #14036 (the old pre 2000 powder bar return spring) in lieu of the safety return bar to reset the powder bar in order to be able to twist the powder measure out of the way of the bullet feeder die in station 4 be a viable fix?

I've found to fix the problem is simple. Move the plate that anchors the powder priming arm 1 hole to the left.

Bistlinec, if you have a solution, could you please paste a photo (or link to one) showing what you mean? I don’t understand what you mean when you say “powder priming arm.”

I took a hard look at my machine this evening; I can’t see how the powder measure can be turned to not interfere either the powder check, or bullet seating dies; turning it far enough clockwise interferes with the primer magazine.

I spoke to a Australian Dillon distributer a few hours ago.
Good news - Double Alpha are currently manufacturing a part to solve the problem with Dillon 750 and Mr Bullet Feeder. Powder check in position 3 and Mr Bullet feeder position 4. He didn't know exactly when this modification would be available, however hopefully very soon. JR
