  1. 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.
  2. It is .092” high. Which is in the higher range of the specs they recommend (.060-.100) Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
  3. 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
  4. 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?

  7. 0.2gr is not ok with any powder. 0.05-0.1gr is ok. Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
  8. 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
  9. Does the Dillon powder check work on a Evo?
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. I think there are more small frame guns in europe, than large frames in US. But sure, if you dont think outside your own borders I see how it wouldnt make sense. I am guessing Jay see the potential in foreign Tanfo customers, since the CZ crowd in Europe have gotten their eye on the grips for a while. I dont know the numbers, but I know there is a market for small frame grips in Europe especially since Henning doesnt make his in small frame. Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
  13. Will start loading on it tonight or next week. Actually waiting on a seating die, but can use the Lee it came with until then I guess. Only negative now is I dont have a RF100 or the primer collator, so have to use pickup tubes. And the tube that came with the evolution is beyong good. Have to use force to get the primers in the tube, not smooth and easy like Dillon tubes. Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
  14. I noticed variation first time I messed with the powder measure. It was consistent when going for ”2” on top and bottom dwell. I use RS12, pellets like n320. Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
