Casefeeder tube
« on: September 10, 2022, 12:00:06 pm »
In order to loader 45 LC and 44 Mag the drop tube has to have a diameter greater than .500 inch.

I have been attempting to source a tube 5/8 imch outer diameter by 9/16 inch id. My ancient tubes for a Dillon rl1000 are this material however i have not located it.

I gave thought to using the lee case feeder tubes for large pistol and turning delrin bushings to glue to the tube where it locates in case feeder assembly as well as at the top where the support band holds it in place.

I would have to glue the micro switch block onto the lee tube .

What's everyone's solution

Ebay has clear acrylic tubes that will work, that's where I got mine. For .44 Magnum/.45 Colt etc. I use tubes with 18mm OD and 14mm ID.
