  1. Mecgar 17’s. The 18’s are thinner metal, 16’s have a bad coating and worse follower.
  2. The case feed ramp is held in place by a detent and can be pulled back and kept further back on the track to prevent it from pushing the casefeed arm. It’s works pretty slick and is a nicer part than what comes with the press, doesn’t need grease. You can also pull it out and flip it around for the rifle side in about 3 seconds.
  3. If you reload or know someone who does you could get primed brass and check if your combination of springs will ignite your chosen primer.
  4. I have my 650 mounted on a standard height desk(old military metal top). All of my reloading is done sitting on an adjustable height rolling mechanics stool at full height and have no issues. 6ft tall with long arms but I image it wouldn’t be too bad for other sized people.
  5. I’m in the 500-600 rd’s/hour range, setup is 650 w/ case and bullet feeder. I use the FA primer filler and have probably 1 stoppage per hundred but hopefully have some things figured out and foresee my rate being 700rph or so.
  6. No need for a paper rule book here. Electronic is fine. I would like to see the app have it formatted correctly with a search function that works and a hyperlinked index.
  7. Regarding, Penalty for holster distance violation In short(can’t copy+paste) “Any competitor who shoots a course of fire while out of compliance will receive a zero score for that course of fire...the ro must measure distances at that time...penalties will not be applied retroactive to previously completed stages and will be based solely on measurements taken on a particular stage” So if at the end of a course of fire an RO notices your holster distance is bad is the stage zero? Otherwise when would this come into effect?
  8. Are you sure this is a feed lip issue and not a mag spring issue?
  9. Only issue I’ve had was with the 18’s. Once they got loose I relegated them to dryfire mags and only use 16/17’s for shooting, haven’t had issues with them yet.
  10. Had a similar style(4 tube fed) bullet feeder for a lee press. It saved no time but I could fill tubes while watching TV.
  11. Used a 8.5# in my SP01 shadow for a while. Should work in your 75b with an extended firing pin, and a reduced power firing pin spring. Mine was 100% with federal primers and ~98% with CCI. I switched back to a 11.5# for consistency and a less squishy feel.
  12. I currently have a XL650 that is only short automation that I am reloading 9mm for USPSA on and I am getting into rifle reloading. I plan on reloading .300 winmag for hunting on a single stage and eventually loading .223 for 3 gun on the Dillon. I am running into difficulties in what I should purchase to set this up. I am in need of a rifle primer, trimmer and swager. I am envisioning my processes will look like this .300wm clean lube fl size/deprime trim if oversized prime hand fill powder seat bullet .223 clean lube first pass through Dillon Resize/deprime swage if necessary trim if necessary 2nd pass though Dillon prime/powder/bullet/seat Any issues with these processes? I am planning on buying a Lee bench mounted auto prime as I sold the hand primer that came with the rock chucker. For trimming i am looking at the Worlds finest trimmer or something like this https://www.amazon.com/Frankford-Arsenal-Platinum-Center-System/dp/B00HS7JEB4. The frankford would potentially eliminate the need for a separate swager, otherwise I was looking at the Dillon super swager. Also is a lube die worth it? Thoughts?
  13. Justify that using the rule book. Also if you get bumped to open your still minor but you could load your mags up to capacity.
  14. So what would the penalty be for using a magnet in production outside of the course of fire?
