  1. Just put the redding mic seating die on my 1050. The redding die is shaving brass, the dillon die did not. Anyone have this issue? Thanks in advance Jim
  2. What entities are you shooting? What make of shotgun?
  3. Agree with Joe 4D--- Leave powder in my hoppers and have never had a problem. Jim
  4. I shoot mainly 1911 in 45 acp, I shoot at a range twice a week for practice. My range guns as I call them are loaded with light loads as I don't like beating the crap out them. I probanly shoot 200-250 rds a week. I put lighter main springs and recoil springs so these guns function and it does take alittle work. I made a spring tester a and you would be surprised what a difference it makes as I do like using different loads and bullets. My self defense guns are pretty much std. spring tensions. Jim
  5. I have a 550 and a 1050, best of both worlds. I use the 550 as a single stage for test loads and to to reload calibers I don't need mass #'s. The 1050 for its numbers, swaging and primer depth. I wouldn't get rid of either and I would buy both again. Jim
  6. I use Federal Primers and seat them .006 deep. I have 100% ingnition in my lightened trigger 625. I keep it the same for all my 1911's, no issues. Jim
  7. There's a product called "add a comb" which is elastic with spacers you can add. Alsoyou can buy spacers for length. I did this when I first bought mine, got a good fit l after trying different sizes. Helped a lot when I had a new stock fitted. Just my 2 cents. Have fun.

    Winchester 244

    I'm in the process of using 244, 200 grn. bayou coated bullets and fed primers in my 1911"s. I shoot lighter loads, I don;t like beating up my 45's and I shoot twice a week at my local range, so I do burn up some ammo. I've dropped the min. book load quite alot and am using lighter recoil springs. No malfunctions, really clean burning and so far really accurate up to 25 yds. I have not put them in a rest yet as I'm working on function right now. Forgot to add it meters extremely well in my dillons, 550 and 1050. So far so good. It feels like a clean burning bullseye.
  9. All my 1911's, combination formula of Mobil 1 5-30 and a additive similar to STP. Works for me and I shoot them all really wet. Jim
  10. Any of you tried 244 Winchester for 45 acp. coated 200 grn.? Advertised as clean, low recoil, accurate and meters well for low to mid range velocity.. Thanks in advance Jim
  11. Anyone running 3.4 to 3.6 N310 with 200 grn..? Looking for a light range load. Thanks in advance Jim
  12. Swordfish= Thank You for your service!!!!! Jim
  13. Thank you guys for all the help. (not sure about the "not telling gender" guy) Took a set of grips down with a dremel and sanded them smooth. Going in the right direction but I am ordering the hoque big butt, no finger grooves as many of you have recommended. Thanks again Jim
  14. Anyone use the JM wooden grips? Jim
  15. I have second set of monogrips, I will try a dremel or a belt sander and take the finger grooves down. SteelCityshooter you are right, almost makes the 625 no fun to shoot. Thanks for the input jim
  16. Started shooting alot of double action only on my 625, have set of hoque grips. My middle finger is just plain sore from shooting. I'm using a light target load. I've tried differnt holds- no difference. Before I start buying and trying different grips. Have any of you had this issue and what did you do yo solve it? Thanks in advance. Jim
  17. The way bench is set up I can sit or stand, also can raise my legs while sitting to take pressure off my lower back. Jim
  18. Works perfectly! One of the best upgrades on my 1050 so far. Thanks Jim
  19. What is the purpose of the zip tie next to the reloading station on a 1050? Anyone have a picture. Thanks in advance Jim Memphis mechanic- Thank You for the video!! Jim
  20. What is the purpose of the zip tie next to the reloading station on a 1050? Anyone have a picture. Thanks in advance Jim
  21. Just curious if your bench is Really Solid and Flat. Wobble and not being level flat could cause issues,
  22. My 1050 I do both. My 550 I only sit, don't know why. been doing it since I got many many moons ago.
  23. Digital scales are great and accurate BUT there are things ypu must do because they are finicky. Make sure its on a level flat, sturdy surface. It should be away from all air ducts, drafts etc. Make sure scale set up to zero and back away to let it settle in. When weighing step back and let scale do its thing. I've dealt with digital scales commercially, some friends don't even use them near flourscent lighting. Personally use a Dillon and have no issues, if the above is followed. I know alittle overboard, but I like accurate measurements. Jim
  24. I use it on my boat trailer light connections, no corrosion. I would assume woks the same way on any battery connections. Nothing worse than corroded connections or batteries.
