Calls Shots

Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. Does it fit before you roll size?
  2. The parts for each conversion kit are shown in the manual for both presses. Have a read.
  3. Is your toolhead bolt tight? I had some high primers and wierd things happening and it had loosened. Are you sure the feeder mechanism that pushes the primer slide is in correctly? Its possible to tighten down the primer assembly and this lands on top of the primer slide and not in the gap it needs to be in.
  4. How good is an on press trimmer. I got my lyman trim die this morning finally. I didnt have any trouble with stuck cases or not enough of the case sticking out of the top. My brass was all sized with the dillon sizing die. The die screws in deep, It would be better on a short tool head but works fine. Just can't fit the die nut on top.
  5. Ive got an older mark 7 that does 2400 on a 1050. It can load at that speed but its stressful to watch. I don't think its sustainable. You are just waiting for a problem at that speed. 1800 is a nice pace and you can stop it if you see an upside down bullet or something. When I preprocess 2400 seems ok but sometimes a case will jam on insertion into the shell plate, it might jam for a second then gets thrown across the room or it will clutch out. It is much smoother at lower speeds. My unit is 4 or so years old, the tablet has never been buggy. A friend has a mark 7 on his 1100. No complaints.
  6. Not without modification. When I bought an x5 from Shooters Delight they sent it with 2 226 mags by accident.
  7. I have a memory like a gold fish, I will have to check.
  8. I found I had more cases not feed into the fancy shellplate. Went back to the dillon.
  9. Have you checked your powder charge on different scales?
  10. Why are you yelling when we all agree? I could get the crimp good enough so it didn't setback but the bullet feeder die was the source problem. The important thing is to check for setback. Ive never had primers pop out when shooting the gun. How much clearance is there between your barrel hood and breachface?
  11. In the OP he said 1.16 so maybe its just a typo. Have you done the bench press test yet? When I first started loading long I'd get bullet setback unless my crimp was spot on. Too much crimp and I had setback. Too little and I had setback. My bullet feeder die was flaring the case deeper than the bullet would seat so there was no neck tension.
