  1. Low primer alarm is your best option. You don't have to watch it, you just wait for the buzzer to go off and load a new tube in. The other nice thing is even when the alarm goes off you still have several primers available in the wheel.
  2. I need recommendations for some 556/223 dummy rounds. The goal would be to use them for setting up immediate action drills and double feeds. What is everyone using ??
  3. I'd recommend doing a prep cycle and then a load cycle. You'll have to lube your brass before sizing it and lube and powder don't go we together. I process a couple of buckets at a time to make it worth while. Pistol ammo is much easier like you said since it can be done in one session. I'd get a Lyman M die if you don't already have one. Good luck!
  4. Short version is the motor on my case feeder is starting to give out. The high speed is equal to the low speed on my other case feeder and the low speed barely rotates the case feeder plate. I've done some looking and saw Dillon will replace the motor for around $150. I was curious if anyone has just gone out and purchased a replacement motor not through dillon. I have seen a few other companies sell kits but they are practically the same cost. If you have purchased a motor which one did you get and where did you get it. Thanks
  5. I use a cement mixer with a polymer drum. I put cut up conveyor belts over the metal agitators in the drum. I can do a full bucket at a time if needed. I only use it for wet tumbling. I never tried dry tumbling with it.That is one extreme though. I know harbor freight sells a big vibratory tumber. A good friend has used it for years with no issues. https://www.harborfreight.com/18-lb-vibratory-bowl-with-liquid-drain-hose-96923.html
  6. Nice socks, are those Haines comfort fit?
  7. Sad to hear they stopped servicing the bullet feeders. Since that option is out I'd highly recommend a MBF. I got one for 40sw as well and I have had no issues to date.
  8. Exactly what he said for me. I've stayed with the 147s after trying 124s. The cost difference was nominal and the gun stayed flatter for me allowing a faster follow-up shot. Definitely load up some of each and do some drills. You may find you like one over the regardless what others say or use. Good luck!
  9. I've ran thousands of moly coated lead bullets made by SNS Casting through my Glock 17 and 34 without issue. If you're gonna shoot lead I'd recommend moly coated bullets vs plain lead bullets. If you start seeing lead in the barrel run a brass brillow pad through the barrel to pull out any of the residual lead.
  10. Search the forum and you'll get several threads with multiple tips/ tricks guys have used to solve this debacle you have going on. Good luck!
  11. exact same for me, I've been playing around with their round nose bullets but the load data is sound and shoots like a wet dream.
  12. If you're looking for a 75ish grain mag length bullet you might want to look into the blackhills mk262 mod 1. It's a 77gr OTM bullet.
  13. That's great, if it wasn't a match gun before it probably has the sto k recoil spring in it. I'll have to check mine to see what weight it is. I shoot 147gr lead bullets and it has no recoil or muzzle flip.
  14. if your media is clumping it could be too much lube or moisture inside the casings. Walnut media tends to clump when moisture gets added to the mix.
  15. Both guesses make sense, good idea replacing the internals of the slide. You probably saved yourself a massive headache down the road.
