  1. ClangClang, I really like the training outline you provided. I have tried similar methods when training with my friend who is a GM. I noticed I could not duplicate any of his skills when moving - I was just slower while trying for A's. Also, he could not point out what the difference was between us. He just said - "you need to practice more." So, later that night I studied the videos we took and noticed he was very smooth when moving. While braking down the movements, I noticed he was better aligned to the target. During dry fire practice, if I matched my hips and shoulders alignme
  2. I just picked up a new MGM spinner and was thinking of the thread while putting it together. As a Quality Manager, we always need to come up with ways to make things repeatable and measurable at the same time for manufacturing proposes. So, seeing this is the a new spinner, the "8″ and 10″ MGM Hex HEXALLOY 550 target plates" to be exact, I thought it would be a good reference point. When I put it together I noticed it was not adjustable in length, just the ability to align the arms and make them straight with each other. I leveled the targets and added weight to the center of the smaller targe
  3. Check out Fast & Friendly brass website then Tips and Tricks. They talk about the reasons too. The swage process changes heights of the ram when the press is fully closed due to swaging needs. When trimming I encounter height variations when swaging too. Heck, I still have a hard time maintaining consistent trim heights just running the trim die by itself. I may need to try another cutter on the Dillon trimmer - not sure. On the 650 I would bump the cutter twice and it worked well. The 1050 has the Mark 7 auto-drive and it just goes up and down one time - as you know. I just have to mess w
  4. Even with a 1050 you will still need to preprocess you brass before reloading. 1st size and swage only, then 2nd use the Dillon trim die and 3rd load your cass. I use 2 tool heads, actually 1 extra that can be switched between different calibers and a dedicated one for reloading 223. The dedicated one has a Lee decapping die in place of the sizing die and the backer die removed. (used only when swaging) and replaced with the M die. 1st run - the empty tool head gets the de-capping die and backer die for swaging. 2nd run - Just the trimmer die and back off the swager. (need un-sized cases for t
  5. I'm sure it has to do with the side pressure the spring puts on the tube. I had one of my cords close to the bullet path spring and as I was loading in more bullets I moved the cord a little and it was touching the bullet path spring. Bullets started to drop by them selves. Moved the cord out of the way and they started feeding one at a time. I do like the spring idea though. Looks like a positive fix.
  6. I had this same problem (on a 650) and when I changed the angle it stopped. Just move the angle steeper on the collator until it stops. I started with plated 9mm 147gr RN bullets and when I tried the lighter 115 coated RN it started again. Moved the collator to a steeper angle and it stopped. The lighter bullets were a little more finicky to get them to feed, but when I was done I tried the 147gr again and they ran too. The instructions say a little about the preferred angle but I just went with what the bullets liked. Needles to say I am very happy with the MBF and wish I did the upgrade soon
