  1. Well this is certainly good to hear. I've heard of the PAL for a long time but thought it wasn't made anymore. That is, until this thread.
  2. Well I just ordered one after contacting Umberto on facebook. Easy to deal with. Used paypal to send 190 euros, so $221, which includes shipping. I really hope its good! I have no problem paying extra for something if its well made and just works. I've suffered the hornady and vibraprime long enough.
  3. I just ordered the autodrive for my manual evo. So would you guys still do two pass even if rollsizing prior? The reason I asked is that I bought a rollsizer recently as well. Haven't had a chance to load with rollsized brass.
  4. @Steyrarms That's fantastic, I'll send you a PM! Thank you! I can let you know how it prints and fits.
  5. @Steyrarms If you need someone to test print one of those 9mm stands let me know! ; ) I have a 9mm system, and recently bought a spare for 223. I have a Prusa mk2S printer. I really wish I had time to build models for stuff like that!
  6. I was initially going to get one but decided to wait. I may have to get one eventually. But the silicone idea doesn't worry me too much. Silicone is quite inert, right? Whatever they use to lube primers in the factory probably wouldn't be any less reactive I would think. Once the propellant evaporates there probably isn't much reactive stuff in these silicone spray lubes. But 6 months to a year is all I'd store my reloads for. If I want to stash away ammo I just typically keep it factory.
  7. Fascinating. We lube brass. Some people lube bullets. Now to lube primers? Doing it in the manner described (not spraying primers directly) shouldn't get much if any "lube" inside the primer compound I would think. And who's to say that the primer manufacturers don't also lube the metal cups at some point? It seems like this sort of thing would help primers move along their journey through a progressive press and into the case. I'm interested to see how this method develops.
  8. Also ordered. Hopefully I can retire the vibraprime
  9. What all did they do to your press? I have a manual Evo serial number 25. I know they said they changed the primer ram hardness and could replace it eventually if I wanted. But so far it isn't a problem for me. Is there anything else substantial worth the hassle of sending it back for?
  10. My manual version has been amazing. I have press #25. It was a learning curve for me getting used to the dillon 1050 type operation, and adjusted swage and stuff, I had some learning to do on how to adjust dies for my 223 loading and was one of the early people to get the 2nd guide rod which really stiffens up the press for rifle. I have done about 2500 rnds 223 on it, and about 4000rnds 9mm. Overall very happy with this press (manual version). ETA: I initially got the rifle version with rifle powder measure. For pistol, I just put a hornady LNL powder measure on and it works
  11. I wondered too, but imagined it was a statement correlating price, demand, and employee requirement. If they determine a price of say 4,000 and will gross 400,000 vs pricing at 3,500 and grossing 425,000 but requiring an employee which would cost 50,000 they would chose the 4,000 price. If I were to run a business, I would guess I would have to consider things like this. I pre-ordered my press at the $2,500 price which included a bullet feeder and everything, and at that price point it was a no brainer. The amount of machining and CAD time/engineering, and the overall package was worth mo
  12. If you're on a time crunch like me, you can buy a Hornady case feeder fix pre-made from these guys. I did the 3D printed part and it turned out great, it just had an interference of a few hundredths maybe, otherwise it'd be perfect. As it was, it would catch a piece of 9mm neck first and get jammed. It must be a tolerance thing. https://www.sassybrass.com/sassybrass/product/casecage/
  13. That’s a great idea too! This thread breathed new life into my vibraprime.
