  1. Mainshaft was shipped quickly from Dillon. Part went in easy and the press is back up and running!

    AO1 LD Review

    Just noticed that there’s no front sight cut on that Arco gun. Even nicer!
  3. Thanks! I will look at that as soon as I get my press back up and running (see other thread about broken main shaft. Lol).
  4. Thanks! Yes, I lube the cases before sizing, but I’ve always done that so don’t think that’s the issue I’m experiencing. It is mixed range brass as well, but I’ve always used that too. Maybe more crimp...
  5. Almost all sized, unflared cases will gauge. Different headstamps (i.e. random) fail. Thanks for your help!

    AO1 LD Review

    At my last match, my match loads chrono’ed at 140 power factor out of my A01LD. This load (3.3 grs of Prima V with 147 gr Campros at 1.10”) normally chrono’s at 132 out of my S2. The A01LD barrel is fast! Going to work on a lower PF load but may also try some 124 gr loads as this gun really soaks up the recoil.

    That’s pretty cool. Would love to try it.
  8. Hi all, Since switching to the RL1050, my failure rate on loaded rounds not gauging in my Hundo has more than doubled - from approx 2% to 5%. This is for 9mm and I'm using a Redding Pro Series Titanium Carbide sizing die. I also crimp with a Lee factory crimp die. The rounds are not gauging around the base of the cases and not the neck (used blacked out a round with a Sharpie to see where the interference was). The sizing die was set up and installed per Dillon's instructions and I have tried to lower the die slightly with no noticeable improvements. This sizing die worked fine for me when loading on my old Lee Loadmaster but it doesn't seem to play nice with the Dillon. Any suggestions or tips I can try? Thanks everyone.
  9. Thanks. Still available. Ordered this morning, should have it by the end of the week.
  10. Never mind. Figured it out - had to remove the index roller bolt.
  11. Bringing an old thread back from the dead. Just broke the main shaft on my RL1050 exactly like Eric did (lower ear, on the up stroke). Will call Dillon and order up a replacement part tomorrow. In the meantime, can anyone tell me how to get the pivot pin out so that I can remove the broken shaft? I tried drifting the pin out with a couple of whacks with a punch and mallet, but the pin barely moved. Thanks! Brian
  12. It does, but it rocks a bit so I added the muzzle support and it’s nice and solid now.
  13. I gave up waiting and canceled my order. Ended up finding a RL1050 that fit my needs.
  14. Hi all, I have an early ‘90s RL1050 coming my way in a couple of weeks and was wondering if there are any suggestions on what I should look at as far as maintenance and/or possible upgrade items. Round count on the press is around 250k and it hasn’t been used in about 15 years. Stored in a heated basement the entire time with a cover so I don’t anticipate any rust issues. Thanks in advance!

    LOK said they will be making Bogies for the A01LD, but they don’t have an ETA.
