  1. I shoot 124 PD with 5.0 grains of WSF at 1.10 using cci primers. Very accurate and mild recoil in half dozen different guns. As I increased the powder charge towards 5.0 groups became smaller and the load burned cleaner.
  2. Love my 1050. At the moment its a dedicated 9mm machine. Getting ready to purchase a toolhead for .40. My 1050 supplements my 550 as the dedicated multi caliber machine. Sold my first 1050 years ago while moving and grieved for a long time. Dont plan to be without one again.
  3. Thinking its either a brass or die setting issue. I load Zero 147 JHP's to 1.10 with no problems using sorted Winchester brass or Speer nickel plated brass.
  4. Have always preferred the slow push recoil of 147's over the snap of 124's. This past weekend I was practicing on plates. After a few hundred rounds, I observed my times were better with 124's loaded over 4.0 grains of VVN320 vs 147's loaded with 4.0 of WSF. What changed? Does the faster cycle time of the 124's make a difference?
  5. I would send the whole thing back to Dillon for cleaning/tune up. It will come back like new. These guys work magic!
  6. I use the uniquetek unit on my 1050 with the arendondo drop slide. Very happy it.
  7. I took the rachet tab thing off of my 1050 and it has run much smoother since then. It might be worth your while to order a new primer slide that no longer uses the little rubber piece on the end.
  8. Creature of habit-have my loads dialed in for WSF. Have lots of n320 on standby. WSF just works great for the Zero 147 JHP's I prefer to load.
  9. i prefer WSF for loading 147's. Very Low smoke- WST and VVn320 have done equally well. I just prefer the recoil impulse of WSF
  10. I use 3.8 of WST and SNS 180 NLGFP. Mild and accurate
  11. Just installed a set of Dawson sights on my 35. Really like the sight picture.
  12. WSF is my preferred powder . I load this bullet to 1.10
  13. I use my single stage to deprime all of my .223 brass. it allows me time to inspect and sort each case prior to trimming. All processed brass is fed to the Dillon for final loading.
  14. I like my mag lula. I just hate when it hides from me. Get to the range and its in the other bag. Get to match and I left it at home loading all of the other mags... Swear this thing crawls under stuff and hides. May be there is reason the pink ones sell so well. Easier to see
  15. SNS are my my current favorite.
