  1. Soak in Ballistol Silencer Cleaner, takes everything off with no tools... Can also be used in ultrasonic cleaner. https://www.ballistol-shop.de/silencer-cleaner.html
  2. After enough fighting, my solution to the same problem was that I bought a second toolhead only for decapping and sizing.
  3. No, I was genuinely looking for help, not smart-assery.
  4. Thank you, this was the kind of help I was looking for.
  5. Ok so same guess as mine... What does the line splitting then mean? What does 0.16" refer to? Now you're making me more confused.
  6. I have a microscope and want to make a jig for looking at the sear engagement. http://www.gunsmithinfo.com/images/Drawings/1911 Receiver.png is the best picture I have found but I have a hard time understanding that... From the picture I can see that sear pin hole is .110" (+.002). Hammer pin hole is .1575" (+.0015). Horizontally their distance should be 2.973"-2.602"=0.371" But what is the vertical distance of those holes?! I would guess .252" but I'm not familiar with old American technical drawings so I don't know why the line is split into two?
  7. Stand is easily made from 1" square tube, just need to drill a couple of holes. Instead of clear tubing I 3D-printed an adapter for the Mark7 spring-thingy.
  8. I like the Redding premium expander. Other than that I want some carbide die for sizing. Mighty Armory for decapping. I ended up purchasing separate toolhead with MA decapping die with the spring to get the more difficult primers out without disturbing priming. Lyman also launched some optimized dies for progressive presses in shot show, maybe they are worth a look...
  9. Is there any trimmer available that would also chamfer the case mouth?
  10. Ballistol's new silencer cleaner does wonders on carbon and even lead. Just apply enough time and ultrasonic cleaner.
  11. Only with Dillon-based legacy products. With Mark7 Evolution you have enough space for both powder check and separate seat/crimp.
  12. That is the most important sensor of them all. You don't want double/empty cases. And get anyway all the sensors...
  13. I'm loading 9mm minor ammunition with standard small pistol primers. I'm loading 9mm major ammunition with magnum small pistol primers. I'm loading 223 minor ammunition with small rifle primers. So I do need to get the machine also empty since I don't want to have any left-over rifle primers end up in the minor ammo. So sounds a bit bad design choice to me... Also in many countries primers, powder and ammo need to be stored in a locked cabinet. Not really okay to leave primers in the machine that is on the open bench...
  14. I started reloading in 2011 with a friend's 550. By the time I had reloaded about two cartridges I had noticed that this is stupid and needs to be motorized.
  15. Ok. My press is first gen Evolution Pro and I am having issue with walking pin. I don't have a set screw, so I believe I don't have the groove neither. Haven't disassembled it yet. But I think I will add some kind of groove and set screw to try to keep the pin from walking...
