  2. DAA holster insert block

    I had the same problem when I switched to the SV grip from the standard STI plastic. I ended up buying the SV insert and that solved the problem.
  3. Double Alpha Alpha-X holster

    I made the switch and I prefer the alpha X due to the all metal construction. I was always too nervous about over tightening the holster adjustments on the gouge ribas holster so it was easy to bump the holster out of adjustment.
  4. 1050 toolhead setup

    Last time I spoke with dillon about the powder check station, they did not recommend it due to the small quantities of powder in 9MM cases. At this point, I have loaded about 15K on my 1050 and have very detailed safety protocols if I have to stop the loading process..Pull everything from each station and double check everything as I place those rounds back into the press..it's kept me out of trouble so far..(knocks on wood) Here is my set up for loading coated bullets...Dillon decapper, lyman M die, Mr bullet feeder powder dropper, redding micrometer seating die and lee crimper..

  6. Autocomp load data

    The one load I tested with Autocomp was 5.7GR, 180 extreme, 1.180, win primer, 168 PF.
  7. 1301 FTE

    I've run 7/8 and 1oz through mine and have not had a single problem but my gun also has a few thousand rounds through it.
  8. New member & 9mm powders

    Some food for thought about being on a tight budget. In my experience, coated bullets are generally faster than plated or jacked and will require les powder for each charge. If you want to save cost, go with coated..Also, try CFE pistol..3.7 - 3.8 grains with a 147 GR bullet is a killer combination.

  10. 2011 Build Parts List

    I don't have any experience with the Ed Brown parts but I will say I did stone the EGW hammer and set the hook length. I set the primary angle and you will have to cut the secondary angle as well. If you are not set up to do this work, check out the brazos trigger group set.
  11. 1050 primer follow rod

    Clean the inside of the primer feed tube to make sure it is totally clean and make sure the blue primer tip is in good shape. Just snug the knurled nut at the top of the primer feeder..Lastly, make sure the primer slider arm is adjusted correctly. With the press completely compressed, bottom out the primer arm into the primer slider bar, raise the primer arm assembly .10 and tighten the allen bolt. Hopefully this helps..

  13. Is there any danger with using very small powder charges?

    I load 2.5 so that must be like stealing..Lol
  14. Is there any danger with using very small powder charges?

    Thanks of the reply. I am loading 9mm with 147 berry's and am using CFE. Occasionally, I use n320 and have to reduce the load quite a bit with that powder as well. I use 2.5 grains of n320 with the same bullet.
  15. I am in the process of developing a PCC load and have found that 3.0 grains of powder work exceptionally well out of a 16 in barrel..Per the reloading book, the minimum powder charge would typically be 3.7 grains of powder. Are there any major risks I need to be aware of? The cases are dirty, there is no unburnt powder, primers look fine, and round is very accurate and soft shooting
