  1. Cool! I sent that link to a friend, and he bought one immediately. Thank you
  2. I don't remember when I heard about this trick, but I'm glad I tried it. If you are using range brass to reload, I highly recommend putting a magnet on your case feeder. Even though I drag a magnet over my 9mm brass after I wet tumble it and bake it, a steel case with berdan primer holes got through my sorting and ended up in my case feeder. However, since I attached a magnet to the metal clamp at the top of the case feeder tube, the steel case stuck to the side of the tube and didn't end up crunching my decapping pin. When the steel case gets stuck to the side of the tube by the magnet, then next case that falls on it activates the shut-off switch on the case feeder, and no more cases come down. I found that an old computer hard drive magnet works perfectly. They are small and strong. Here are some pictures of the magnet placement and the steel case close-up. Let me know if you have any other clever tips for the Dillon 1050. Thank you, Chris
  3. I cut down my 16" barrel to 13.25" with a 3" comp, so my Taccom Carbon Fiber handguard is just under 13". I bought the 16" handguard and cut it down to come right to the end of the barrel.
  4. I don't even use a gunbelt. I have two kydex pouches that clip on any belt for emergencies, and I have one CR Speed that I use tilted to the side for speed reloads on the classifiers. I love not wearing a gun and a whole rig. I feel lighter and its a lot easier to pick up steel when resetting targets! I get made fun of for shooting a Gucci cheater gun, but it gives me a grin all day, so who cares.
  5. Have you tried running a drill bit through the comp to make sure the bullets are not scraping the comp? Mine had to be drilled out a little because the holes were not exactly even with the barrel.
  6. Where do you mount Karl Bibb's 3D printed bullet feeder on a Super 1050? It's the same design as Ammo Mikes, and Karl has permission to sell them. He just finished printing and assembling one for me, but I'm not sure what to do about the mount. They are designed to be mounted on the front of the Dillon Casefeeder, but I thought that I read somewhere that the angle was wrong in front, and it needed to be mounted on the back side of the case feeder. He said that I can put the mounting bracket on the other side of the collater, but the angle would be wrong. He would have to print an new one with the right angle. Before I have him do that I wanted to make sure. Does anyone has a 1050 with a 3D printed bullet feeder?
  7. I made a modification to my trays that adds some separation between them so they hold more brass without clogging up. I cut 1.5" strips of the interlocking anti-fatigue foam floor mat from harbor freight and placed them around the outside edge of the black and blue trays. I think it works better. I also cut down my 5-gallon bucket a little to reduce the rattling a little.
  8. They make plate that you drop into the yellow or blue tray https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DKVY5GK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It separates 9mm from 38 super; however, it will not catch 38 supercomp. They also make a plate for .380 https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01C66560O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  9. When I first set up my 1050, I changed to a DAA powder funnel, and the cases were sticking. I took my funnel to my jeweler friend who buffed it on his polishing wheel for a bit, and it doesn't stick anymore!
  10. I just got my everglades hold down die in the mail today and installed it immediately on my 1050. I was amazed at the difference. Before I installed it, my primers were seated flush, now they are well below flush. You can feel the inside edge of the primer pocket when you rub your finger across the case bottom. I didn't realize how much the 9mm brass moved in the shell plate. However, now I guess I need to adjust my primer seater, because they are so deeply seated that the primers are slightly crushed. LOL I just got my 1050 and am learning a lot.
  11. I found this on Amazon by searching "large funnel" I'm putting in my cart! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CF49Q22?pf_rd_p=1cac67ce-697a-47be-b2f5-9ae91aab54f2&pf_rd_r=6FEWZ1ETGYEWH0DPHD9V
  12. I got a Mini from a guy here on enos to use on my 1050 until I can get a 3-D printed feeder, and I really like it. Loading the magazine takes a bit of time, but the benefits of not touching the bullets again for another 100 pulls of the handle is nice. Also, the DAA powder funnel flares the brass perfectly for the bullet to sit properly in the case without flopping to the side. The only thing you have to do is polish the DAA powder funnel so it doesn't stick in the case on the upstroke. I don't miss holding the round straight until it goes into the die.
  13. On a 1050, would I lose the powder check station if I installed a Mini bullet feeder?
