  1. That's crazy fast! Looking forward to rifle and pistol brass processing videos at the higher speeds. Ammobot is the best! Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  2. Those that decide to automate their presses understand that the warranty (which is only a year on the 1050, 1100, and cp 2000) will be voided; but they realize that the benefits far outweigh that risk. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  3. Is the gun on the top (partial dust cover) for sale in the U.S.? Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  4. Depstech usb endoscopic camera from Amazon. I use mine with an old cell phone. It works great. No fancy wiring needed. This one is less than 20 bucks. There is a wireless model that's a little more expensive, but still under 40 bucks. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0749BQG1B/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_BSsvCb3DE1J51 Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Mark 7 Presses worth the money?

    No reason to be so sensitive MD. I'm sure that hijacking a thread is something you've never done. That being said, to the OP, automation is not inexpensive, but neither is our sport. Any of the automation options is better than pulling the handle. You'll have that machine for a lot of years, so the cost of a couple grand extra spread over several years is not that much.

    Auto or Manual

    I would normally say get the most expensive press you can afford. If the 1050 1100 is in your budget, then get it. However, if you only shoot a couple hundred rounds a month, then get the 550. I reloaded on a 550 for many years. It is a great press and will allow you to reload more calibers using standard dies. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  8. I agree, get the 1050 and keep the 550. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  9. I went from a 550b that I had for about 20 years to a super 1050. I was shooting a lot more, and I wanted a faster machine. There was a big learning curve going to the 1050. I blew up my first primer ever because I wasn't used to the "feel" of the machine. After that I got a bullet feeder. Then I got tired of pulling the handle all together and bought an Ammobot. The Ammobot was the best decision that I've made. That was the game changer. It is fast, and makes high quality ammo. So I'm happy I switched, however, the only regret is that the caliber conversions (Mr. bullet feeder, shell plate, and primer conversions) are a lot more expensive. $1100 for a fully setup super 1050 is a steal. I would buy that in a heartbeat. I hope this helps. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    IFG sneak peek

    1. 8 rounds max in mag 2. Be semi-automatic.(1. Double action, double action only, striker fired, or single action) 3. Use 9 mm (9x19) or larger cartridges. 4. Barrel length 4 3/8" or less. 5. The unloaded firearm with the heaviest magazine must weigh 38.00 oz. or less. 6. The firearm with the largest magazine inserted must fit in the IDPA gun test box measuring 7 ¾” x 5 3/8” x 1 3/8”. 7. Heavy or cone style barrels on firearms with barrel lengths of 4.25” or less. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    IFG sneak peek

    I'd like to see a 4.1 inch steel frame Tanfo that can be run in the IDPA CCP division. The weight limit is 37 oz, in that division, so that may be hard to meet in a steel frame gun. However, the CCP division was designed around the Wilson Combat 4.1 inch 9mm 1911. Bull barrels are allowed in that division. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Mark 7 1050x

    There are a bunch of pros IMO. I've been running a Rev 3 for about a year now. It is a great machine. Being able to pull the handle and process ammo is a big plus in my mind. Another plus is the all of the accessories that are available for the machine. Customer service is excellent, the machine runs as advertised, and a couple of accessories that are additional options on the Mark 7 come standard with the Rev 3. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Time to upgrade....Dillon or Mark 7?

    I'd personally go with a Dillon. The first set of reasons are: 1. The factory parts are readily available. 2. Dillon's, customer service is unquestionable and is the model for all reloading companies. 3. There is an abundance of high quality after market accessories available. The second set of reasons have to do with automation. At some point you may want to automate your machine. There are several automation options available, but I will restrict this conversation to Ammobot and Mark 7. IMHO the scale tips heavily towards the Dillon 1050/Ammobot over the Mark 7 evolutuon in terms of the comparative cost, value and features. The Ammobot/and brand new Dillon1050 package vs the Mark 7 Evolution + autodrive package is approx $3993 vs $6909 respectively. A fully tricked out Ammobot with all of the sensors including the bullet sensor, case ejector and case size discriminator costs about $5220. IMHO, the 1050 and the Ammobot is the better value, it works really well, and the customer service is excellent. Now I am glad that Mark 7 came out with the Evolution, because it will drive other companies like Dillon to come out with more innovative products, or be left behind. FYI I don't work for Ammobot, I just like their products. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
