No expert here, but I have had to work through accuracy issues and this is a few things that helped me. I started shooting with ONLY one goal in mind. SEE THE SIGHT LIFT. That was the thing that helped me the most. I suspect that part of the reason that helped was I was getting a perfect sight picture and then jerking the trigger. Also as I got more into USPSA and started to practice shooting at weird angles, shooting in and out of position, etc I figured out my wrist tension was inconsistent. I don’t know if that was an issue back when accuracy standing still at 10-15 yards was an issue, but I suspect it was. This is similar to what Memphis said. I also think it would be wise to verify that it’s not just the sights or how you align them/focus on them. I have purchased 3 used guns which were sighted in from experienced shooters and every time I found I would shoot high with them. My groups were good so I assume it is just the way I align/focus on the sights. I always just adjusted the sights and the guns worked fine for me. The good news for you is that you aren’t pulling them left or right.
Had this come up at a recent match. Interesting to hear different view points on retreating and acquiring a target versus breaking the 180 in the process. Conversation mostly centered around safety and new shooters.
I started out with a 550 and ended up reloading 6 different calibers on that one machine. 4 years later all within the same year I ended up getting a good deal on a used Super 1050 and I reload all of f my 40’s for competition on that. I also ended up with another 550. I now I have a 550 for small primers and the other for large primers. It is nice to be able to run my smaller batches on the 550’s and to not have to change the priming system from one to the other. If it’s paid for it doesn’t owe you any money!
Take the Dawson mag and cover it with sharpie marker, let it dry it may take a couple coats to get nice coverage. Carefully insert it and see where it's rubbing. Tap it with a brass hammer or gently squeeze it in a vice to make it work. Use calipers to monitor your progress.
I use my progressive for 9 and 40, which I shoot the most of. I keep a Lee turret press for 45acp and .223 because I don't shoot much 45acp, and the .223 I run as a single stage until I get to the powder, bullet seat and crimp portion.
No, i confirmed it was made for an STI/2011 and the magwell fit perfectly on the standard STI grip. I was able to use a small amount of JB weld and build up just the very bottom of the grip on the DVC and then sand/file it to a nice tight interference fit that has no play. Should work well now.
Spoke to dawson today. So I am taking this with a grain of salt. Asked what mags should I get from them. Was told that Tripp are great for things like steel challenge and USPSA but for IDPA where you reload from slide lock go with dawson. As Tripp loose the top round often . Said nothing about Wilson.

I have TMMS and ELS. I prefer the smaller size of the ELS. The tab in the TMMS can jab into your leg/waist/junk depending on if the tab is up/ down when in goofy shooting positions. But if you already have tek locks, it would be cheaper to buy TMMS. That’s what I did until I switched everything over to ELS.
The difference you're seeing is because the Dillon sizes the brass slightly smaller than the Lee. Aside from visual differences, they both should shoot the same. BTW, the difference you're seeing will be magnified if you reload 9mm with 147 gr bullets. Again, the visuals don't necessarily impact the performance.
