  1. Try Roughneck or Full checkered instead of bogies if you havent already. They are comfortable but still grippy.
  2. Yes, its a timing issue. But I cant figure out how to tune the disco to make this work. If pulling the trigger normally, you never notice it. You really have to pull it and hold it precisely where hammer drops to make it drop to half cock. Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
  3. Hi, how to fix a shadow that during double action drops to half cock before pulling a little litle bit more and it falls entirely? Pre-b disco and comp hammer.
  4. Also got inconsistent powder drops with Evo. The powder measure have been back to M7 for an update. I get about 0.3 gr variations. When manually handcycle the drop, its consistent more or less, but when running the press, its up to 0.3gr lower drop. I have tested lowest speed setting, higher speed, bottom dwell up to 10, index speed and so.. it doesnt matter. Something happens differently that causes this. Might be how the funnel lining up as someone wrote or just that when funnel activates the rotation and drop, some powder ”jumps” up and the space for powder isnt packed full when rotation to release it. I dont know, but it sucks big time. I have to buy a Dillon powder measure now to use until I hear something about M7 fixing the problem. I didnt realize the drops were so inconsistent until I chrono ammo and saw 70-100fps ES and 30 SD. With my old press I had always single digit SD. The accuracy was crap too with loads from Evo which isnt strange with those kind of variations in powder and fps. I also had the powder drop get stuck in its upper position. So it didnt rotate back to pick up new powder. This resulting in lot of empty cases since I dont have a powder check to stop machine.
  5. It is .092” high. Which is in the higher range of the specs they recommend (.060-.100) Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
  6. I took it apart and made sure everything ran smooth and was clean. It seems like with more speed, the index thing moves cause of more torque from machine. Making it not grab the shellplate sometimes. Instead slips underneath it or something. Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
  7. Anyone have experienced indexing problems with shellplate? I followed the index adjustment instructions and everything was within specs. Still skips indexing every 5 or so strokes while running the press on 1600+ rph. If someone had the same problem and figured it out I appreciate the help. Am waiting response from support about it, but someone might be faster with answer here maybe?

  10. 0.2gr is not ok with any powder. 0.05-0.1gr is ok. Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
  11. Yes, but the rod that hits the bottom of the machine, that activates the sensor. It looks like its to close to the die itself. Since the toolhead on the Evo is wider, it might not pass the outside?! Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
  12. Does the Dillon powder check work on a Evo?
  13. Metal plate is adjusted as much as can be, to the right. The case flipper is adjusted to, I have tried different things. Now I have what works best and didnt get flipped cases the last 1000 rounds. But still, time will tell. With Dillon i never had an upside down case, and I loaded for 3 years on that.
  14. I processed about 10k brass so far with the Lee decapping die. The case feeder did same thing for me from time to time, feeded cases upside down and decapping pin pierced the old primer. I ran the clutch at 3-4 depending on how lubed the cases was. It held up pretty good, but after about 20-30 of them it bent crazy. Now I have gotten my MA ”the blue”, so was hoping that would be tougher. Btw, the casefeeder is fast, but sometimes drops upside down cases. Also have the occasional airborne cases flying across the room. Is your casefeeder wiggling in the connection with the 2 parts too? I can shift mine left to right, doesnt matter how hard I screw those 2 screws together. Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
