Funny you should ask. I just got this reply from them not 2 minutes ago.

Hi Steve,

Thank you for your email and your compliments. The model on the video is the most current that we offer. Some of the pictures on the website are outdated and we are working to get better ones up. We do offer a 223 model as well as a 9mm/ 38 special, 40 cal, 45 ACP, and 38/ 357. The cost of the 223 is $619.95 USD plus shipping. The pistol calibers are offered at $569.95 USD plus shipping. We have conversion kits available for the pistol calibers for $295.00 USD.So if you would like to load 40 cal, 45 acp, and 223, you would need to order a complete system in 40 cal, a conversion kit in 45 acp, and a complete system in 223. The 223 is a different creature so it has to be purchased separate. Lead time is about 2 weeks. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

The kiss is not available right now and don't know if ever. The partners are having problems.

I saw that one too but the fact that the bullet has to 'ride' the case from station #3 to #4 before it gets seated makes me wonder how reliable this setup would be so I passed.

Quicktime video = Website FAIL

Not rated as functional with lead bullets = Product FAIL

Product pricing also FAILS as only a commercial loader who can write it off would be able to afford it. Now the question is would you want a unit that only hold 150 slugs - constantly having to refill the primer magazine is enough of a pain.

Sounds like they really need a good old time CNC Machinist to go over the design and mfg processes to optimize for economic and quality production.

Wasn't one of these set up at the SHOT Show a couple of years back and they couldn't get it to work.

That website has not been updateed since 2004. There is a struggle going on between the 2 partners. I got an email from one of the partners the first of the month explaining that the ORIGINAL KISS was on hold as they settled their legal troubles.
From doing some searching and reading a few things, It looks like one of the partners started duplicating the work and making a similar one under his own company.

There was A GSI set up at this years' show. Worked great and probably worth the money. It is completely integrated in to the tool head and all. That made the only drawback in that, you really can only buy it for the calibers you reload the most. Other than that, way too expensive for a casual 500 rounds every now and then.

GREAT SYSTEM. Holds probably about 200-300 rounds and as quick as you can click them off, your'e done.

It should work with a slightly larger flair in the brass so the bullet sort of seats on it's own......and he says he has a money back guarantee....I may try it.........

I did some more digging. That link if you follow it to order takes you to CZ System who was just a dealer for the orginal KISS feeder.
KISS bullet feeder's original website has been taken down and new one is up now. http://www.mrbulletfeeder.com
I also found that the guy that is building them is a member on Brian Enos's forum. Here is some info on the new design. http://www.brianenos.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=68394

I just got a reply from rick from Mr bullet feeder...

It will cost 550.00 and 30.00 shipping
caliber conversion kits are 150.00 and 15.00 shipping

He said that they should be available soon, as the legal battle is finally dwindling down between him and his former partner...He mentioned 2 weeks...HTH

One of the shooters in our IPSC club uses the KISS feeder and is happy with it. I stopped by his house once and saw it working. It certainly increased his loading speed - and he shoots 50k rounds a year. It does take the place of the powder check though.
