  1. Yeah I would like to see a picture as well. The only time I've seen anything other than [emoji294]️-[emoji294]️ on Starline brass was their .223 basic brass that had 5 [emoji294]️'s and 5 -'s around its circumference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Odd that it was introduced in January 2018 (with an expected release date of Spring 2018) and here we are on the verge of January 2019 and can't even get a firm price... Wonder what went wrong? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. My kind of logic... the 1st 1050 not only paid for itself, but a MkVII and another 1050! M Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks Sarge and sorry Slavex for not getting a picture up for you sooner. Been sicker than a dog... One suggestion, if you can try to load the trays off the base if your brass is really wet. Keeps water from pooling and speeds up the drying process. ...now I'm going to go back and crawl under my rock... M Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I bought an inexpensive round one off Amazon 5-years ago and was able to purchase an additional 6 trays for the mega stack. A short length of PVC makes loading trays faster. I usually do this on a chest freezer so excess water isn't a problem, but set a tray down, stick a piece of PVC upright in the center hole. Dump your brass in. Place another tray on top. Dump brass in and repeat. The PVC keeps brass from falling through the center hole so you can load trays faster. Doing it off the base keeps excess water from accumulating and extending the drying time as well. Just remove the PVC and place the loaded stack on the base. FWIW, depending on your brass size, you can assume 4 to 5 trays to comfortably handle a load from a Thumler's Tumbler. M Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I had problems with mine when I first got it. It seems somewhat counter intuitive but they don't get tightened down as tight as the OEM plate. Following FFB's instructions and using a feeler gauge, I haven't had a failure to feed since (25k+ rounds). I own 3 now and the tighter tolerances have reduced case wobble for me. Can't speak to the other brand because I haven't used one. M Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. All depends on how much powder you buy at one time! ;-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Rock solid and repeatable. I have several on dedicated heads, but one that is used exclusively on a universal head that gets caliber changes often. With UniqueTek's spread sheet and a little bit of time to calibrate different powders, it's easy to dial-in a prior setting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Memphis, One Shot does not contaminate powder or primers and not that a 9mm case needs it but having some in the case mouth does ease sizing and particularly neck expansion at the primer swaging station on the 1050. A whiff of One Shot really does go a long way on short pistol cases. Having said that, I used to use tupperware until getting my MkVII. With the higher volumes the containers were getting pretty nasty as One Shot built up. At least with the zip lock bags you can toss them fairly frequently. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I know this is an old thread, but that is a frightening thought. Assuming Uhaul's case would be a civil claim, could they compel the auto manufacturer to release that data? When we purchased our last car a couple of years ago we signed a release acknowledging the data that was collected (quite a bit actually beyond just speed) and the manufacturer would be compelled to release the information if ordered by a court. Wondering if that would apply in a civil case now. Not that I ever want to find out and of course I've seen this the day before renting the same trailer to deliver my son's Eagle project!

  11. Despite a thorough cleaning beforehand, I always had trouble with adhesive strip lights staying in place long term. I've been happy with the LEDs from Reloading Innovations found here: https://reloadinginnovations.com The LEDs are bright and solidly mounted on fitted pcb boards that clip on the press. Their gen 2 spill stops are pretty handy as well with tall rifle cases and fine powders. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Did you actually read the post or immediately take everything out of context in forming your reply? Regardless if it is a 650 or 1050, a properly designed and operated system will not break "more or different" parts. Chuckling at your "more exposure" to people comment as well. Perhaps... perhaps not. Given my career, I am satisfied with the breadth of my exposure. Certainly enough to recognize someone who is willing to lie to steal a $2 part and lacks the common sense and moral compass to know its wrong. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. ...unless it was cross threaded and gorilla’ed on. Let’s hope it is just rust. Kroil is the ticket then. Love that stuff. Keep multiple cans dotted all over the shop. Kroil and Aeroshell 66/33ms, it’s like aromatherapy for men. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. With who’s system? With the MkVII that is utter rubbish. If a part is going to wear or fail at 10K rounds, it is going to wear or fail at 10k rounds. You might get there faster with automation, but that doesn’t change the cycle count. If you have a pre-mature part failure due to automation, your press is either setup wrong, your clutch setting is too high, or you just flat out made an operator error. The only part I have ever “broken” on a 1050 was a decapping pin and that was on a manual 1050. I’m over 40K rounds now on an automated 1050 and the only part replaced was the indexing pawl because “I” didn’t have it set correctly and replaced it with an abundance of caution due to excessive wear. I’ll add to what GringoBandito posted; don’t forget the 1050’s are commercial machines. They are pretty stoutly built. I will also agree that MkVII’s post sale technical service has been excellent, but unless something has changed recently (which I hope it has), there pre sale support has been lacking at times. You have a dim view of humanity and the folks on this board in particularly. I have often said the politest folks you will ever meet are at the door of a gun shop. Given the demographics of the BE forums I would expect a higher level of integrity than most places. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Another long term light OneShot user on 9mm here. I have recently started loading 223 on my MkVII and found something a bit more substantial was needed as mcracco points out. I have been making my own lanolin based lube. A quick roll in a folded terry cloth towel before boxing (or dumping in a zip-lock bag), removes most of the unwanted lube. M
