  1. We are about to close on a new house and since I'm an architectural designer I'm drafting up the changes we'll be doing. Part of those changes is a new reloading/fun room for me. I decided to model up my MK7 Evolution so I could get a sense for where I will put it and how much room it will take up. I screen captured a few images from the owners manual and a few other I found online. In my drafting application Revit (which is really good at architecture and not meant for manufacturing) I imported and scaled the images to be 1 to 1. As Revit draws everything 1 to 1 I was able to mock up the press. Its close enough for government work and will allow me to very carefully set up the space. I will post additional images as I moving through the process but attached a few I created today. The application is 3D so it's easy enough to create views, however, you do need to put in the work of building everything. Call me a nerd but this stuff is cool.

    Brass tumbling recommendations

    Do the instructions for Brass Juice say you need to use distilled water for the tumbling process? I looked on there site and could not find any detailed instructions. If yes, that's a non started for me as if would add cost to the process. Not that I'm cheap....but I use range brass for a reason! Thanks

    What is the best cart/stroller to use ?

    Wow, not giving then away! I think the "other third" is saving a bunch of money by converting one....better yet converting a used one.

    What is the best cart/stroller to use ?

    That's a neat idea. I'd say go on your favorite CraigsWrist, FleeBay, etc sites and I'm sure you'll find lots of options. When we were using one for its intended purpose we had one with inflatable tires and I found that running then a little on the under pressure side was more forgiving on dirt trails.....which is 99.9% of the ranges I know of. Something to keep in mind, we tested lots and a few were really back at going around corners, which is an issue when running, but we normally walked, but its worth noting. Some had a lock out on the front wheel to stop it from turning but all that extra stuff adds weight and even the one we had was fairly heavy. Don't forget at the end of a days shooting you are more tired and you still need to pack up.

    Rollsizer vs CasePro

    Thanks for sharing this. I bet you could hook a motor up to that in no time! Sure be easier than getting tennis elbow!
  6. Great, thanks for the extra info.
  7. Nice mods on your press. I was going to have my son print the case collator 3D part at school but decided that may pee off the powers that be! Was also thinking of buying a 3D printer to mess around with, but I like your mod. It looks like a piece of 1/8" plastic tube attached to the side of case collator. Can you give me some additional details on it. Thanks, Alan

    Assuming you mean "dot seems to go in a circular motion" when you shoot it. I know mine moves up a tad but I can't say that I see any circular motion. I guess if you are shoving on the thumb rest way to hard you would see this in where your shots fall. I'm also assuming you dot is on tight, you are using the correct ammo and there is nothing wrong with the position of the comp. If you think you are pushing too hard on the gas peddle (thumb rest) take it off and test fire....watch what happens.

    Kimber Aegis Elite Custom (OI)

    I handled one at a local shop and I really like the look, feel and for me it aimed really well. The dot was right where I expected it to be. However, no deal for me and I don't have the spare change for one right now. I did buy a Walther Q5 Match which I believe is legal in Carry Optics but the Kimber still fells way better.

    Mark7 Evolution

    I talked to them about the Black Friday sale during the sale last year and I'm not ready to pull the trigger on going auto. I really don't shoot enough to justify the expense. Besides, we were in the process or buying and have since signed on a new place so I will definitely be hanging onto my pennies for now. However, the primer orientation sensor is of interest, but I'm going to hold till I set up my new reloading area and see if I can get my RF 100 to behave a bit better. That will solve 1/2 my problems!

    Mark7 Evolution

    This is good stuff. I'm hoping everything can be used if one upgrades to an Evo Pro. In other words, buy the new sensors and control box when available, later buy an autodrive and remaining sensors and everything will be happy working together!

    Red dot sights and co-witnessing

    I have a Walther Q5 Match with a Trigicon Dual RMR. I ended up taking off the front sight as I could not co-witness. Assuming your front sight is correctly positioned the bullet will fall in the right location, but the (physical) height of your Burris also comes into play. On my gun I simply could not get the red dot low enough to align with the front sight, so removing the front sight took it out of the equation and I was not trying to find both the front sight and the red dot. If I mill my slide and lower the red dot that will help, but I'm currently mill less.

    Rollsizer vs CasePro

    On the Rollsizer site the total for the Manual Rollsizer × 1 US$536.36, 9mm for Manual / Mini Electric Rollsizer × 1 US$76.36 and Small Pistol Drop Tube × 1 US$22.73 is $635.45, however, I did not calculate shipping as everything will be shipped from ImmortoBot in VA. I'm assuming the prices you mentioned above ($749 shipped or $649 at Shot, is this also the shipped price?) is for everything I mentioned in this post and according to the Rollsizer site it comes with the hose and adaptor clip. Can you verify this? I have to ask is it really $110 dollars to ship it in the US? I'm in MA which is relatively close to VA. Also, and forgive me here, but are you associated with ImmortoBot or Whitehead? Thanks die calibre conversion discs and drop tube

    Rollsizer vs CasePro

    Is that the pre Shot Show price! Any deals at the show? Is $749 with the calibre conversion discs and drop tubes? Can it be ordered here in the US from immortobot or only from the manufacture in Australia?
