  1. I bought the spring and bushing from level 10 and I’m glad I did. It really made a big difference the handle comes back to top of the stroke along with the tool head. It felt different at first but I got use to it pretty quick. I’ve had it for about 18 months and it’s still going fine. I don’t think Dillon had the bigger spring and bushing at the time I got the new spring and bushing from level ten.
  2. Sarge get signed up for there news letter and they will send you email when bullets come available I got a couple thousand a couple weeks ago. Some 124 s came available and they was gone in about twelve hours.
  3. 5.2grains worked good for my 45 with 200 swc. I’m guessing that’s what you are wanting info on ?
  4. I been using action lube plus which is a thin moly grease, I just put a thin film on the bottom and sides of the slide.
  5. I agree I’ve never had any problems with the primer system on my 550 in over twenty years. I do put a little lube on my slide after cleaning it and I never tighten the nut that holds the primer tube.
  6. I have a good shooting buddy that’s using 4.55 grains of w-231 with 124 gr pd jhp at 1.12. He’s using a seven pound spring in a ck, never seen it malfunction. I am using the same gun and load except with 4.3 grs of aa#2 always runs like a top. I’ve tried all kind of different loads and the gun runs flat with these low power loads and still functions fine. Both loads are running around 134 pf.
  7. If you have bent the wrench then you are probably over tighten the nut. It’s not hurting anything but it’s not necessary to go anything over snug.
  8. Why don’t you try backing off on your crimp a little more and see how they group I crimp my lead loads at .379-.380 and .378-.379 for jacketed bullets. It may help only way to know is try it . Good luck
  9. Probably will have poor neck tension, they must be for something other than 9mm.
  10. The last barrel I slugged I use some fishing lead sinkers and melted it in a fired 9mm case with a propane torch. It worked great the 9mm case has a slight taper to it so it’s easy to start and it’s the perfect dia. It was easy to drive Thur I used a brass rod but a wood dole rod will probably work.
  11. I’ve had one of these for a year or a little longer and it’s been spot on a very good little scale.
  12. I use 124 jhp in my open gun and 147 coated lead in all of the other 9mm’s. I like the heavy 147 f/p because it’s seems to work better on steel plate racks and bowling pins.
  13. No don’t bead blast anodized aluminum it will take the color off. Use to work in a shop around that type of stuff.
  14. No I don’t clean my brass after I apply lube.
