    They will probably still barely make PF or just use for practice. What speed does it show for the 5.3-5.8 range?

    Tanfastic - Your post is a big relief. I have not posted in the last couple of days doing a lot of set-up and testing. Coincidentally, I ended up increasing the loading speed to 1900rph as I feel it is the best compromise. I also ended up with a top and bottom dwell of 2 to make sure the powder accommodates at both ends of the stroke. Not getting the consistent results I would prefer, but it is much better than it was initially. I agree with you that a 0.1 spread would be ideal (As that is what I was used to). Other than that, I am very happy with the Evo Pro.

    Actually, it is near all the way in. Maybe a 1/4 turn out. I will try that tomorrow although it is not sticking right now. The additional flare is what bothers me now.

    Yes, I have the MK7 funnel. I am not using the Mr. Bullet Feeder funnel at all. (Station 5 using a Redding Premium Expander Die) I kept trying slowly until I managed to get it go all the way up, but I have more flare than what it should. Not a huge deal as the bullet is not tipping and any flare will be taken care of by the crimp die. I may give it another try tomorrow to see if I can really nail it down. Just tired after 5 hours of fiddling with it Today.

    I removed the primer tube to make it easier to rotate the powder assembly. I removed the two screws holding down the assembly to the die and adjusted it as much as I could. It is "almost" there, but at this point it is adding some additional flare to the brass.

    Correct, manually or automated flip it gets stuck.

    Well..I have run out of ideas on how to get it to work without binding in the up position. I can get it to rotate all the way up, but it will stay there and not come back down.

    Checked the bolt and everything else. Tight and everything moves freely. I started setting up my powder charge and noticed that when setting the powder measure die height in order to have the drum rotate and lift the upper assembly, that it would get stuck as it rotates to the up position even though it has not reached the complete "dump" position. I guess as long as I can get the desired charge it should be OK?

    Ahh got it! Great explanation. I just checked mine just in case and it seems OK for now. I'll make sure to keep an eye on it. I just downloaded the exploded diagram and video to make sure I know what needs to be oiled/lubed.

    I am strongly considering buying another toolhead and do the same.

    Any chance one of you guys can post a quick 1 min video of this? Also, what indexing issues have you had? I just want to make sure I can identify such issue (besides the no index at all). I'll wait for my primersense harness to arrive and I'll take a look at that area to make sure nothing is loose, but with the short test I did, it indexes right. (I guess). BTW - A new manual revision will be posted soon. (I was told).

    Tanks: Assembly and setting the dies are indeed a breeze. I meant he will spend more time staring and drooling than assembling.

    Congrats. You will then spend a day or two staring at it upon unboxing. You will get excited like a kid with a new toy as you progress during assembly and have a big grin in your face, then spend another day or two staring at it after you are all done! Ask me how I know!

    100% agree

    I cancelled my order mid 2018 after a few months of waiting as shipping was delayed. My CC was refunded within a couple of days, no questions asked and no hassle! I placed another order a couple of months later and received my Evo Pro recently. It is a business, of course they are going to try and up-sale and get you into a Revolution if possible. You know what you want, that's what you tell them you want to buy, no one is going to force you to buy anything. It is your prerogative, well said. You can either wait and buy a manual Evo later, get an Evo Pro now or just go get a Dillon, Hornady, RCBS, etc.
