  1. no...I should have pumped him when I had him on the phone but I didn't. He did mention one thing, The new design would be able to handle full wadcutter bullets where the current one can not...He was very excited about it so I suspect it's close.
  2. That puck system is just not for some of us....the mount is so clever and simple. It absolutely holds the collator in the perfect orientation and isolates it completely from other vibrations.
  3. That would be awesome! That's one of the key reason's that I'm keeping my GSI tool heads. The second he does for the 1050 I'm going to make a major investment...
  4. It works stupid good, doesn't it? No shakes and always holds it at a perfect 45-degree angle. As I said, I run the MBF collator into a GSI tool head. After fighting with the GSI collator for over a year I gave up and just ordered the MBF collator only. Double Alpha was good enough to just sell me what I needed. I'm not ready to give up my GSI tool heads, they're real works of art. However, I was stunned by the performance of the MBF collator. It just flat works! I had it dropping my 45-185 SWC BB HP NLG Hi-Tek coated bullets perfectly in about 10 minutes. I hope it's that easy to tune for the
  5. I just finished my tuning station, The U-bolts will take a 1" pipe, no bigger. I got a 2' piece of black iron from Home depot that was threaded on both ends, I then drilled a one-inch hole in a 2x6x6 and force threaded the pipe right into the 2x6. I can now monkey with it right in front of me while I'm sitting down. It kind of looks like a festivus tree, er pole......
  6. An additional benefit of this mount I think is going to be the ability to set it up for new bullets. Like anything you have to play with it to get it to work right. I'm going to have a sort of a tuning station. I'm going to have a short pipe of 18 inches or so that will be mounted in a 2x6 that I can sit on my workbench. I can then temporarily mount the MBF on it while I twiddle with the different adjustments to make sure everything feeds correctly into the tube. This will all be right in front of me on my workbench and not mounted up on the case feeder so it should be much easier
  7. The round aluminum fitting is part of the GSI pole mount. It will accept the 13/16th-inch aluminum rod I have the MBF mount bolted to. As you can see, the grey mount holds the collator at pretty much exactly the right 45-degree angle.
  8. OK, here's a picture with an aluminum rod used as the pole.
  9. So if anyone has any doubts about MBF support, forget it. It's freakin' awesome! I bought just the MBF collator from Double Alpha. I realized that mounting the collator on the Dillon case feeder wasn't going to work well for me. Several folks here recommended that I contact Rick, the guy who invented the MBF....so I did. Rick informed me that he had made a stand alone mount for the MBF and that he occasionally got requests for them. After I talked to him for a bit he decided to make a run of a bout 10 units. So I got one. It's a simple, nicely made but oddly shaped delrin block tha
  10. hi, noticed one of your post and was curious what 3rd party decap pin your using and were to get them. Thanks James

    1. AbitNutz


      Weirdly enough they're by a company called squirrel daddy and you can get them off amazon or they have their own page.

      Now I understand how I never found them thru Google weird name thanks I will try one Tanks james 

  11. Are you familiar with the 650? Station #1 is where the primer seater is. The decapping die must be located in there. If you don't decap on the downstroke there's no place to seat the primer when prime on the upstroke.
  12. I'm not sure that's the only reason. The M-style dies do a nicer job of expanding the case and not just belling the case mouth...and if you're loading cast bullets, that's a big deal.
  13. On my 650 I'm thinking about changing to the following order: #1 Size/decap/prime #2 M-Die #3 Powder charge #4 Seat bullet (GSI toolhead) #5 Crimp
  14. I have used the M-Die and I really like it. I too use the Hi-Tek coating on cast lead. I have a 650 with a GSI bullet feeder. The bullets run great through it but I'm thinking things may be improved a bit by separating the powder drop and case expansion and using an M-Die. I'm really paranoid about giving up the powder check station though. I realize that I'm not likely to get a double charge because 2 drops of the load I use would overflow the case. I could get a squib though...
