  1. Never used the Mighty because of price point. Dillon, Hornady, Lee all work very well in 9 MM. Both the Dillon and the Lee resize and end up with a greater "taper" and therefore "coke bottle" look. For 9 MM I like the Dillon over the Lee and in 45 ACP the Lee over the Dillon because it sizes further down the cartridge. But the question is "worth?" If people perceive it (mighty) fills their needs, then I guess it's worth it to them. After tens of thousands of very successful rounds I would personally not spend more than Dillon or Lee for sizing dies in 9MM.
  2. Ghost makes one which fits. For IWB use opposite hand and get the belt clip from them: I have an S2, Limited and Lim Pro and they all fit in this one: https://www.ghostholsterdirect.com/shop/civilian-ghost-holster/
  3. Thanks. Been using OS for years and never paid attention to the label. The poster implied, at least to me, there were two versions of OS. I only new there was one.
  4. There’s really no reason to not lube your brass for resizing. Since I hadn’t heard One Shot sizing lube had a version with DYNAGLID I checked and it looks to me that is not the sizing lube. One Shot also comes in a cleaner version. You want this one: https://www.hornady.com/reloading/case-care/lubes-and-cleaners/case-lubes This one is a cleaner: https://www.hornady.com/reloading/case-care/lubes-and-cleaners/ I would suspect if you use the cleaner with the DYNA... it may contaminate you powder.
  5. If fouling is not an issue coated saves as much as 3 cents per bullet (maybe more). When I order 10k at a time the savings adds up. But if fouling Is an issue or you’re shooting less then buy the style which fits your division and enjoyment factors. BTW, I found accuracy was actually better with the coated Bullets I use over the plated ones I experimented with.
  6. Yes! If you are dry tumbling and then loading one shot allows you to not have to tumble clean after loading. I found all the others (including home made lube) leave such a sticky film on the finished round it is mandatory to clean them post loading.
  7. This may sound stupid, but I was having an occasional upside down case until I made sure the feeder pole was as close to vertical as possible. For some reason the angle of the feeder made a difference. Same thing with the bullet feeder, by the way.
  8. This thread is getting old, but the OP asked how can a case sized by the push through die fail after loading? The answer is the bullet bulges the case in the loading process. Check your cases before loading, but after sizing and the push through die, and then after. Look at the head stamps and see if there is a pattern, if not maybe you are occasionally seating bullets crooked causing the case side to bulge. Just a couple of more ideas in a graying thread.
  9. Do the guns used for testing have a stock hammer/striker springs or have they been lightened?
  10. Since most of us load with progressive presses for pistol, the need for consistent precise loads is not normally needed. Just about any $20.00 digital scale which will read in grains will work fine. If you search through the forum you will find the technique most use is to test about 10 loads and then get the average weight of the powder drop. Then you will have to rely on your chrono and acceptable accuracy tests to determine what load works for your gun. My first digital scale was a Hornady and it wasn't any more accurate than the one I purchased from Amazon. I purchased a Lyman scale weight check to see if mine were accurate, and they were. A beam differs in precision because cheap digital scales can be effected by electromagnetic sources, (lights, phones, magnets, motors...) near them. Now if you are going to shoot long range rifle precision counts a whole lot more.
  11. You didn’t mention if your guns have non-stock light hammer/striker springs. If so, CCI primers should be pushed all the way in, flush isn’t enough. Proven best primers deeply seated for light sprung guns, Federal and then Winchester. The only way to set a 650 for deeper primers is to shim the primer punch up a bit. Search the forum for pictures. of course there are other opinions. Good luck with your quest.
  12. I load thousands of 147s for TF and CZ, your problem is the depth required to meet OAL requirements. CBC brass is the worst offender when seated deep because of the rapid thickening of the brass. I did not read which bullets your using, but the 147 FP profile and the PD. FMJ RN both will load at 1.14 and plunk test successfully. .356 works better than .357 although using the 147 FP from Precision Bullets in .358 worked just fine also. No need for the Lee FCD to make them work BTW Good luck, lots of advice here and the challenge of making good rounds is part of the hobby.
  13. Are you writing about the 1050? I found the primer system was extremely easy to both set up and run, especially compared to the old 650 rotary feed. Basically I just feed a mag full of primers, added extra weight to the rod and it just works. Also very easy to switch from small to large. Love my 1050, glad the OP purchased one.
  14. I didn't say they would not be a difference in recoil impulse using math (yes there's a web app that will calculate that for people). I said, "you won't notice any real difference." Perception of recoil is probably more important than the actual amount.
