    1050 or another 650

    “Rebuilding the press” (To switch priming system) That was harsh 30 mins max. I load usually a stash of ammo before switching the priming system. By that time, it is time to clean the priming slide area anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Electric Vest and Half Gloves for Reloading

    Get a parabolic electric heater. They sell them at Costco. They focus the heat wonderfully. You point it at you at you get toasty quick. Perfect for your application. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Have a LNL with casefeeder Save yourself a big headache if you plan on using Hornady casefeeder parts to drop and insert brass. Sell the LNL it is a good press. But the bottom of the casefeeder blows chunks I M O Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    PCC Recommendations

    My vote Nordic Components AR9 It also has interchangeable mag. assemblies. I paid $1250 The trigger is a polished milspec. I put in a 3.5lb. CMG Trigger for under $100 that breaks at 3lbs. Like glass. The Gun runs everything, wonderful machining. You would be very happy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Fair valuation on once-fired range pickup brass?

    For a fast sale take it to a recycler. No headache dealing with selling it. Local recycler pays $1.83 a pound. If you clean it and find a buyer for all the calibers you are talking more than one buyer (hassle), in theory you can make 40%-60% more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Can't Make Ammo Fast Enough!

    A bullet feed is a big speed increase for a 650 or 1050 just guessing but I would say 25%. It allowed me to run at a faster rhythm before I went Ammobot Rev3 I bought two 1050’s locally for $1500 would get another if I could score one for 1200-1400

    Hardness for 124gr cast/coated bullets???

    With coated bullets that hardness formula is toast. 10-12 BHN works fine at that PF Tote group is the worst powder for coated Bullets. Clays can be dangerous for inexperienced reloaders, especially heavy Bullets. Enjoy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    New 1050 in the house

    You didn’t ask and I know better usually (it is happy hour). Remove that ratchet. I also add a few washers to that stud to extend it a tad for the primer slide. Unless you are a newbie to reloading and are still uncomfortable with it. IMO it is there because of Ralph Nader. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Get the 1050 use one Toolhead reload big batches priming on the down stroke and swaging big pluses.

    CNC Toolhead S1050

    Here is a fix for you on any sticking. Run your brass in corncob for 30 minutes. My drive for this Toolhead is the tunability of NOE inserts with a Lee universal decapper. As a bonus I don’t get stiction with these inserts or with M-die. I run my brass 2x through my 1050 that is my preference.

    CNC Toolhead S1050

    Tom let it go man I am not a machinist. I would not be happy with a .45 slide that looked like that. But I bought a toolhead, not a freaking slide. Geeeeze! Let's agree to disagree and move on. Enjoy!

    CNC Toolhead S1050

    I can’t bell in #2 I swage there. Doing a M-die type of operation in the powder drop is not what I want. I prefer NOE inserts screwed onto the stem of a Lee universal expander. I can run .356 .357 .358 you are locked in with one size with Mr. Bullet powder drop. Additionally the powder drop is smoother when you just drop powder vs. expand the case wall and bell / drop powder. “You Can’t run 3,400 without slinging powder” How can you make that claim not knowing my setup? Shellplate, powder charge, powder type. Whatever speed someone chooses to run their automated 1050 press at has no relivence to this toolhead. If you don’t see the point, ok.
  14. Looking for experienced feedback please. Which S1050 powder funnel AK or 30M1? Starting down the 300BO rabbit hole. I plan on running an M-Die or NOE M-die type tips w/Lee universal expander on by BO brass along with powder coated bullets. So I just want my powder funnel to drop powder, no belling. The Type "C" 30 carbine does some flaring, per Dillon webpage "Type: "C" 30 carbine, flaring 300" I am guessing the AK powder funnel does not flare and that is what I am looking for/should buy???

    CNC Toolhead S1050

    Ok got it. Your initial question was not precise enough for me to understand, now I do, just me I guess. Prior to the CNC toolhead I ran a EGA - Dillon 1050 Super - Primer Hold Down Die. I ran 10-15K with no primer detonations, so I have no feedback yet. All of my prior detonations (maybe 3) have been a result of a ringer in the brass then trying to push another primer in. I believe I have eliminated this issue by preprocessing my brass 1st. pass Mighty Armory decap, then Ammobot primer sense in swaging #2. Then I load. I try to be as careful as possible, just because I can run stupid fast I don't.
