  1. I’ve had both on my 650s. Both smooth out the press a little but even with all the upgrades both co sell when you have 2 presses working side by side one without all the upgrades and one with all the difference is really not that much. It dies solve the powder spills but all in all you wonder if all the upgrades were actually worth it. From personal experience after getting all the different upgrades it’s really not worth all the money. Some do make a difference but all together really not enough to justify the money for all the new upgrades. Sarge on the forum has said numerous times about al
  2. And I had no adjustments required. My 40 setup was the same with each. Didn’t have to turn the die at all. Maybe I got lucky. I even measured 20 case mouths for the flare before I took the mbf out and when I put the alpha in. All were the same. I guess I got lucky.
  3. My guess would be copyright issues. Plus I’d want mine to look different also i can tell you this black coating is slick as whale s$&t.
  4. It’s worth it. Cured my 40 cases sticking on the mbf. I did everything I could to the mbf to get it pretty good. And sarge is right just power through it and you really don’t notice. But on my new rl 1100 you notice it more than on my 1050 so for 40 bucks I have the alpha dropper a shot. It’s worth the money. It cured the problem 100% when loading 40 on the 1100. The press is smoother not having the pop of the case sticking. I have no issues with seating bullets either. Just adjust it to the least amount of flare possible to get the bullet to stay on case. I measured my flare when using the mb
  5. Hog if you using mixed brass when you set it up just barley kiss the inside of the case and maybe back it off barley so it doesn’t jam into case on mixed brass. I made that mistake the first time i set it up.
  6. No prob. If they want to much my buddy actually put his in a drill press a filed it down and sanded it and polished it. Came out about as good as mine that was machined. Even chucking it in a drill and filing it down would do the trick just takes more time.
  7. I did my first one on my 1050 by itself shellplate empty. When I did my first cleaning I reset it with a full shellplate and it was about the same but I think it maybe better with the shellplate full even if it’s a little better. I set my 1100 up with the shell plate full right off the bat. If anything it doesn’t.
  8. I use for both pistol and rifle setups. Yes it will have to be turned downed for the rl1100 toolhead. Top of thread has my measurements of the 2 press toolhead. Turned it down to .561
  9. How it feel on the press with 2 sizing stations. And with the sizing and swaging at the same time any issues with that.
  10. My s1050 id is .577 and my Everglades bushing is .578. My 1100 hole is .561. I am gonna turn it down to that to start as to not take to much off.
  11. Ben stoeger pro shop has 9mm rl1100 in stock and ready to ship as of 6-16-20.
  12. Stand a little to left so you can see into case right after it comes out of powder station and before bullet feeder
  13. Yes it does. Works just lie the mbf dropper just better. I’ve had no sticking or popping while using the alpha.
