  1. did they tweak the formula?
  2. Called dillon they said it should not affect the function but offered to send a new one out. I already ordered one so i declined. I checked my primer slide cup/pin/spring assembly and it was too long, the set screw was basically loose, made it proper length. I am now trying to sort out the plate popping/jumping at the last 1/4 of upstroke. It looks like the metal arm that pushes on the metal shell plate pushes inside the plate instead of pushing it out and it seems that is where the snag and sudden jump in my plate happens. pic:
  3. Om having rough indexing and sideways primer issue with my SDB. Took my shell plate off and found this. That is a very deep groove worn where the index bolt sits. Bottom of the holes where the primer cup goes looks damaged too.
  4. Im thinking of upgrading from SDB. Whats a fair market value for an sdb with all the acessories 9mm and 38 conversion strong mount bullet tray additional head for dies and tool stand and spare parts kit? Im thinking of selling so I can get a case feeder and a bullet feeder for a 750.
  5. Sadly I am just a common peasant with an SDB Honestly even if there was a better powder than S1000 it is a matter of convenience, it works great for me and I already have everything set up for it just shove the components in.
  6. Alliant sport pistol does the trick for me. Used to be solo 1000 but thats unobtanium now.
  7. So because I had 1500 remington small pistol primers I loaded some up in my usuall 38 special load with solo 1000. Had to get a new strain screw new main spring and return spring to get the balance right. So now my trigger pull is at 7.6 pounds vs 6 pounds for federal primers. So now I have a dedicated spring set for federal primers and one for "hard" primers. I also have been keeping track of my round count and cleanings. I can get up to about 1200 rounds before I get ignition problems due to soot and crud buildup under the extractor star and the back of the cylinder crud and crap. For those of us who are godless barbarians who do not clean our revolvers how long can you go before problems crop up?
  8. just a quick update cheap crappy chinese measuring instrumensts are crappy. Went and used a mituyo caliper and a micrometer at work, the sizes are perfect. .377ish My step father always told me "never go off half cocked". Now I look stupid.
  9. I just shot 2.5" 8 round group at 25 yards, I think that is pretty acceptable.
  10. pulled a bullet and it measures .357 even after crimp
  11. I compared to my old batch back to back they are sitting next to each other. My old batch doesn't have mold lines either.
  12. So I was running low on my revolver bullets 160 grain round nose from bayou bullets. The new bullets seem messed up to me, half of the bullets are missing the polymer coating in several spots especially the "lube groove" spot. My old bullets where sized to .358 and measured .3575 to .3585, new bullets measure .3555 and there is a seams on them from the mold it protrudes enough to catch my nail. Will I have trouble shooting .355 sized bullets out of a .357 revolver?
  13. if i bell mouth enough to avoid shaving my coated lead bullets i wind up shaving brass in the seating die, daa funnel solves that problem
  14. it said that it is for Dillon so I ASSumed that it works on SDB
