Frankford Arsenal tube loader




I coulnt help but find this on the net .... http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tNumber=656090

For 32.00 its got a better price than Dillons 294.00 RF 100 Primer Filler

Only thing is its No longer made.

My question is there anything else out there like this that even comes close to that price?

If you read the OP it states that fact.... What I am wondering is is there anything else out there like the FA Vibra Prime besides the near 300.00 RF 100?

Sorry, didn't have the coffee yet.

I've read on several other forums of guys trying to find an equivilant to the vibra-prime and no one has found it. A few say they have found used ones but they come up rarely. I gave up and got the dillon.

Love my Vibra-Prime! Just wish I'd bought several when I had a chance!! Can't imagine pecking @ primers with a flip tray. Just won't reload, if I have to go that route.

Good luck with finding one. I love mine and didn't think they'd ever become obsolete. I load 7-10 sticks at a time so I can load 300-1k rounds when the weather is bad. I guess I'll have to baby it now...
