  1. I have both the 9&40 emp. Great little carry piece. Both are my winter time carry pistols.
  2. My buddies did this after 500 rds. Call Adam he switched it out said it was a defect in metal
  3. I b was sad I into this but man glad I passed because seems like it’s still nothing but problems
  4. Don’t matter if you load 2 or 2000 if you have the extra money it’s well worth it. And you could do the same as a mini dropper for every caliber if you wanted.
  5. I’ve been getting lucky at academy. They’ve been having cci primers pretty often. Picked up over 2500 last couple weeks. They limit to 3 trays only. With my wife I’ve been getting 600 each trip. I don’t go everyday only when I am around the store.
  6. Got mine Thursday. Fill tubes in less than 10 seconds. Only complaint is the straight lines to flip primers. Rcbs tray with circles flips primers easy. Daa doesn’t. Should’ve went with the circles. But gotta say after flipping with finger it’s fills them quickly. Just sucks having to do that.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
