  1. I’ll second the Speed Bead Burris mount. Have had it for several years and never a problem. It’s easy to install, puts the dot low, is reversible, and doesn’t cost much money. Really nothing to not like about it.
  2. Should people start taking their own sights apart and coating the circuit board with silastic or some other type adhesive to keep things from rattling apart? I don’t know how simple this could be as I’ve never taken one of those sights apart. Are they glued, screwed together, or ?
  3. I got my hammer adjusted and serrated the ramp and ran a few hundred more through it with 100% success. I started with 200 in the hopper and now have 500 in there. I have not tried less than 200, so might be something to having enough in the hopper. Will have to see when I do some loading and actually use the primers. I have not yet seen a single upside down primer, so feeling pretty good about it so far.
  4. I was on the fence on whether I wanted to be a field tester on this thing however couldn’t resist the temptation and bought one. Received it a few days ago but hadn’t got around to opening it until I started reading this thread again. I set it up with the original disk in it and did not put the one that was version 2 or whatever in the machine. Went through 1000 to 1500 primers easily and not a single upside down primer. Couple things I did notice is a couple of tubes were a little bit low and had less than 100 primers. Then I had one overfill and the machine stopped because the chute filled up. After that I started dumping the tubes and hand counting what was dispensed. I got anywhere from 95 to 105 primers. I have no idea where the machine might have stopped counting on the high numbers because the machine was stopped by the led safety. My hammer also needs to be adjusted and it seems that about 1/3 of my notched disk doesn’t move it far enough so guessing it is not perfectly centered. The adjustment looks simple enough, but haven’t done it yet. I did notice the primers slowing down, so will cut the serrations before moving forward. I am using the old style silver Winchester small pistol primers. I see no reason to install the V2 disc at this point. Until I get the hammer adjusted and chute serrated I don’t feel like I could let it run on it’s own while loading on the press. I’m not unhappy at this point since there really isn’t much involved in this game that doesn’t require some tuning. Look at all the threads on fixes for Dillon, mag tuning, etc.
  5. That looke to be pretty disappointing after a long wait for a working machine. I wonder how it will perform with other primers like Winchster or CCI?
  6. Can’t take abuse. I tried on a fixed optic mount open gun and they still failed. Mine are on AR angle mount and a .22 now
  7. I have the Burris SpeedBead and see no reason to do anything else.
  8. Looks like you’re all fixed up. Good deal and have fun with that thing.
  9. That is one heck of a disclaimer there. Don’t guarantee a rifle barrel to be accurate…
  10. My favorite and best shooting rifle has a CMMG 1-8 twist 16 inch barrel. I’ve hit steel out to 400 yards with that gun. I have shot a lot of 208s out of the eight twist barrel, so don’t feel that your problem.
  11. I would start with a replacement barrel. I have 3 different Blackouts and they all shoot supersonic ammo pretty well with about anything. Subsonic ammo is more difficult to get good accuracy from, but I’ve never had any trouble out of supersonic stuff. I use the surplus 147s and whatever other .30 cal bullets I can get cheap. I loaded up some 165 softpoints for 3 gun shooting since they are steel target friendly. Didn’t work anything up, just tried a load and it’s 1.5 moa easily. The 147s stay around or slightly over 1” at 100 yards. Anything over 2” is unacceptable in my mind. My 8” Black Rain Ordinance barrel shoots really well. I’ll check to see what my 16” barrels are. I did try some of those 110 gr Barnes black tip hunting bullets and don’t think I ever got a group over an inch at 100. They shot very well, but kind of expensive.
  12. One cool thing about the Mossberg version is you can buy a $20 adapter piece and it will function perfectly with the Aquila mini shells. I don’t own one yet, but it’s certainly a toy more than a tool in my mind.
  13. I went through 2 Razors as well with that problem. Their standard answer is “never seen that before”, because that’s what I got from Vortex as well. They did send new replacements both times, but my Razors now only reside on rimfires or AR 15s. I like the sight, but not durable enough for open gun.
