  1. I like WST for my 9mm. I use 3.6 grains with 147 Gallant Bullets at 1.135" and have never had an issue with leading. I am shocked at how clean my barrels are after a match. Funny, I just bought a pound of Titegroup to play around with for my 147's.
  2. Yeah, you can just hold the primer tube up to the tray and they’ll go right in. A lot have removed the black piece from the filler. I haven’t only because mine works ok (for spp) with it in place. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I was able to get mine to work fine with win spp. I did clean up any flashing left over and lightly sanded the hole for the primers. If you haven’t, google vibraprime fix, there should be a few videos pop up for you. Win lpp do what you’re describing though.... Good luck with whatever you do. When it works it’s great, but is really frustrating when it doesn’t. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I upgraded from a 550 to a 650 after about a year. At that time, I didn't have a lot of free time to dedicate to loading ammo, so I wanted to maximize whatever time I had. The 650 with a case feeder really allowed me to do that. I also liked the idea of a powder check. Especially since my kids would be shooting my ammo. It serves as a double check to my eyes. Would a 1050 be nice? Sure and so would a BMW, but neither make sense from a practical standpoint.
  5. Yeah, especially because I was getting ready to buy one when that happened. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Unfortunately, he stopped making the PAL filler.
  7. I'll second this. While I didn't buy from him, I used plans he posted online when he was starting out. I only went with a single vs a dual drum setup, but can do about a 1/4 to 1/3 5 gallon bucket of 45 brass at a time. I use Armor All Wash/Wax and Lemishine. Comes out spotless and stays that way. I'm loading 9mm now using brass I cleaned last year. It still looks like it did when I took it out of the drum. If you can weld or know someone who does, it wasn't too expensive going this route. I want to say right around $300 if I remember correctly.
  8. I like my Gempro 250. It looks like they have increased in price since I bought mine though. Looks to be around $150.
  9. Best investment I've made, aside from my 650. It's tighter than a Dillon case gauge on both 45 and 9.
  10. Check to make sure the ejector wire isn't rubbing on the case feed slide assembly. That can keep it from moving completely forward.
  11. My current 9mm load is 3.6 WST, 147 Bayou, 1.135. No issues at all. Very accurate and soft.
  12. Yep, he posted this on his Facebook page around Christmas time. Was going to try to get one around that time and was bummed when I saw this. Oh well, guess I'll have to make do with my Frankford Arsenal filler.....
  13. I sent in an email for a replacement indexer ring and spare ejector wire. Replied to my email within 2 days and had the items shortly thereafter.
  14. I've yet to set up my press for processing 223/556, but that will happen here in a few weeks. One question though is, I see where people are running a FL sizing die before the trim die. I've read multiple places that you don't want to do that as the sizing and trimming should happen in the same stage. If it's sized before, the trim die won't have as good a "hold" on the case and can cause problems. Has anyone heard of or actually seen this being a problem?
  15. Looks as if Bayou raised their case prices. Not sure if it is going to go past their current coupon or to lessen the impact of the sale for them. Normally 147gr 9mm is $218/case. It is listed at $227 at the moment. Kind of disappointing...
