  1. The M die is really the way to go. You can try more flare with whatever you’re using right now.
  2. A few thou. Oversized is not uncommon for a coated lead bullet. It’s pretty typical. Are you using a M die, to expand and flare the case mouth?
  3. As far as I can tell just the rails. It’s based on gen 3. I used a gen 4 barrel ,trigger assembly, and all the slide parts had them laying around. Everything else was gen 3. Used a Brownells branded slide.
  4. I just built one a few weeks ago. You have to drill the holes straight, need a drill press or something to keep the drill 90 degrees to the frame or you will fight the pins. The rear rails don’t fit. I had to fit it to the frame, kinda a PIA. The whole thing had to drop lower in the frame to align with the pin hole. Had to piece out the lower parts kit, because no one had a kit in stock. Only have about 200 rounds through so far, but no malfunctions yet. Something is binding when I try to put the slide assembly on, not sure what it is yet, takes some wiggling and cussing to get it on, but once on, it’s fine. I would build another one. Actually I have another one, for a rainy day. Polymer 80 frames.
  5. https://immortobot.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=33_34&products_id=322 I bought it from ammo bot. It works good. It won’t detect the small steps cases though. Only the large steps like maxxtech (sp?)
  6. It did. The new one also measured .003” larger than mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Same, i was getting shaved bullets all the sudden after tens of thousands of flawless rounds. The new funnel measured .003” larger than the one I wore out, and the lip was gone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. How’s the bullet tamping compared to the DAA from the bullet dropper? Nice and tight? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hmmmm interesting. I’ll have to try one. Thanks for the post. I’m on my second DAA funnel, wore out the first one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah, gotta keep the bullet on the case when indexing. I mean, it was more work than setting up 9mm, but less work than 300AAC. Search in the reloading forums. Many topics on it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Most guys use an M die for neck expansion, then bullet toppling is not an issue usually. The dropper needs some work to feed 55 grainers reliably. I had to chamfer the ID of the dropper, there’s a ledge that the Bullets get stuck on. The spring in the micro switch needs adjusted, bullets also get stuck from the spring tension.

  13. Yeah the theory is, you just slap the magazine on it from a table, rather than trying to stuff it in a pouch. I Have never used the magnet during a COF. At this point, all I use it for is to slap my used mag on it, at unload and show clear, and of course inadvertently sticking to the side of my truck and scratching the F$@& out of it.

  14. Used a few pounds of #5 before. Left quite a bit of Unburnt powder in the gun. Would use it if I had too, but wouldn’t buy it for that purpose. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Dang! That thing is sweet!! They almost need to make a stock that matches the receivers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
