Anaxagorus & Fat_McNasty: Another option would be to use RCBS's Gold Medal Seater. It has a window dang near identical to the feed and seat die RCBS makes for their rifle bullet feeder, excepting it has a mic on top which makes it pricy. What remains is to figure out a way to drop a bullet in from a $28 bullet feeder style tube and repeat it on every index. RCBS does it with a connection to the Uniflow Powder Measure. It makes sense, because if and only if a charge of powder is dropped, a bullet is dropped into the feed die. I have a .308 version, and plan to purchase a .223. The .308 GMS works fabulous for me.
Been thinking about tackling this problem myself.....sigh....guess I'm getting older....it seems it's getting harder for me start the inertial momentum towards a new major project. The last one, the Pro 2000 Case Feeder worked out great, but it took a while.......been resting up from that!
The Hornady case feeder is identical for all practical purposes, so maybe one of you make my life easier and figure it out first, and share it with us of course!
