    Maybe if you get the pin you could slow down the lower dwell time to 900 - 1000 rounds per hour. Then run the press faster the rest of the cycle. Ps. are these the pins you have? Universal Decapping Die Includes 2 - .070 Decapping Pins If so, the .055 pin is only $2.79 A thinner pin is easier (less chance of sticking) to bend so it might be worth while to get two so you have a spare on hand. https://www.mightyarmory.com/collections/made-in-the-usa/products/copy-of-decapping-pin-070-standard-or-055-lapua-heat-treated-and-tempered?variant=5097667788841

    It is, as I am # 8 on the DAA list. Hopefully it gets on the assembly line next week. Or at least by the end of the month. That is unless yours is already on the assembly line. Quiller is # 1 on the list and he posted this on Friday the 12th. Hope yours is on the same pallet with Quillers if not ours should be on the same pallet.

    No, I have been shooting 45 ACP and have about 2000 bullets left to reload. I also have 1,000 9mm bullets. When I get my Evolution I think I just might switch to 10 mm. I have 13,000 bullets to reload and probably won't change tool heads until they are all gone. To buy bulk bullets from Rainer your order had to be 35,000 bullets. I purchased 15,000 each for 10mm and 45 ACP and 5,000 9mm. a few years ago.

    Ok, That's good as I will be reloading slow and easy. Mine will be more like 200 to 300 rounds a session. I'm thinking a Dillon rf100 would be good enough, but also wondering about the primer collator. Thanks for all of the above, Norm

    From what I understand, the sensors are for the Evolution Pro. How do those who have the Evolution detect these kind of problems? Ps. Now I am wondering if it might be worth the upgrade to the Pro just to be able to use all the sensors available? I will probably never do the round count to justify automating the Press.

    Looks like I might get my Evolution sooner than Christmas. Just go a call from DAA wanting to confirm that I want my order changed from 40 S&W to 10mm. DAA had received a call from Mark 7, saying they are getting ready to build my machine and wanted confirmation before making the change.

    Now I am glad I'm last on the DAA list for an Evolution. The longer it takes for me to receive it the better (kinks worked out) the Press. I was hoping around Christmas, If it takes longer no big deal.

    In that case it would probably be best to pull the bullets and redo them.

    Check with Mark 7 about you polishing the primer rocker with Tripoli and Rouge. That should not void the warranty.

    I have never reloaded 40 S&W. Will the case hold a double charge? Or did you ever get a lot of powder spillage that might have been from a bullet seating on a double charge? I would be worried if the shell plate did not move and a case had powder. The head and powder measure coming down on that case would add another charge. Ps. CrashDodson Billy did you ever check the Pawl height?

    A lot smoother on my Hornady Lock N Load. Spilled powder a lot ? and was always cleaning the primer slide that got gummed up with powder. I think from the expander sticking in the case slightly and the case (with powder) moving when it finally released from the expander. I went two doing two stage reloading. First stage. size & de-prime, prime, bell second stage. powder drop, powder check, bullet drop, seat bullet, crimp bullet. No more spilled powder.? The Mark 7 10 stations is the cats meow ?

    Page 26 Evolution PDF manual. "It is important to check the indexing adjustment whenever performing routine press maintenance. There are 3 main adjustments points /areas to check" check the upper limit stop and lower limit stop adjustments "The height of the index pawl is critical if it set too low or too high the shell plate will miss indexing altogether." Page 28 "With the machine at the top of the stoke the index pawl should be adjusted so the leading edge of the pawl is in contact with the inside wall of the shellplate indexing hole. Once this is set remove the shellplate and confirm that the index pawl is between .060 - .100" above the top plate surface."

    Are you intentionally trying to get the thread shut down? GrumpyOne Please, Please don't shut the thread down because of this person. I have been getting a lot of valuable information on this thread.

    Thanks, That goes on my list of things to purchase when my Evolution ships. I checked it out on the Dillon website. https://www.dillonprecision.com/dillon-carbide-size-deprime-dies_8_4_24457.html Ps. I love coming to this forum. Hopefully by the time my Evolution ships I will have enough information to get my press set up and running perfectly when it arrives.

    I know this will sound counter intuitive. But it works for me, whenever I try to loosen an Allen Screw I tighten it just a touch first, it seems to break loose the seazed threads better than trying to loosen first. Ps. I just remembered another trick. Cut off a small piece of the long end of the Allen wrench. Put that piece in the set screw and tap it with a small hammer to break lose the threads. Then see if the screw will come loose. The first trick seems to work so I haven't used this trick in a very long time. Warning wear glasses when doing this one.
