  1. Wow! That’s a lot of rounds. More than I will ever load. Thank you for letting me know the amount.
  2. When I first opened this thread I saw that it was from 2007! Then you updated it twice and said you were repairing your press. How many rounds between you replacing the bearings? Thanks.
  3. Sorry, just saw that your up north. Mailing I’m sure won’t work. Give them a call.
  4. No idea, sorry. Give’m a call. You can always mail your ammo to your hotel.
  5. Pistol Parlour in Mesa has several CZ’s and STI’s in a case by themselves. Talk to Eddy. I am not associated with them just a happy customer.
  6. You can buy a plate and use that but my question for you is which frame are you using for this slide? If you have a limited slide with the 8 mount holes in it it would be better to mount the sight via the frame. This would give less stress for the optic. I use an EGW mount for my SRO and it works well. I didn’t want to ship my slide in case it got lost. Good luck.
  7. I just removed a little. I wasn’t able to measure the amount due to the shoulder. The ram is almost even with the top of the shell plate. Give it a try.
  8. Greetings all, I recently placed a post about if the Dillon 750 Improved the primer depth compared to the xl650 and found out no. DBlue responded to my thread and suggested that the primer plunger assembly be disassembled and removing material from the ram. This is due to the ram having a shoulder which will not allow the primer being pushed in any farther. I took the ram and placed it in a drill and used a rat tail file and removed material. I wasn’t able to measure how much due to the angle of the shoulder. After about 5 minutes I took the ram out of the drill and reassembled the primer punch assembly. I but it back into my press and tried to reseat my CCI small pistol primer. I could feel that the primer was seated well below the base of the brass so I was happy with the result. Here are some pictures of the before and after measurements. The measurements are taken at the top of the shell plate and how far the ram rises in the before and after the modification. First picture is what DBlue posted and shows where the material needs to be removed from. Second and third show a new small primer punch in place and show measurements Fourth and fifth show results from removing material from the ram. Again I want to reiterate that this idea came from DBlue and without his idea, I might me looking at a 1050 to help with my primer problem.
  9. I don’t know how the case lined up with the case feed bushing. You have proof now
  10. I bought one 4 weeks ago. Got to wait another two weeks until I get it in my hand. This really looks like the next level for competitive shooting. Thanks for the podcast.
  11. You could order new springs and followers from PD and your magazine troubles might just go away.
  12. Well, that’s a different approach that I haven’t heard of before. I’ll take a look in the morning. Thank you.
  13. I haven’t tumbled any glass with mine but to each it’s own. While my Dillon 2001 will tumble a ton of brass at one time, the quality of the polishing is poor compared to my Frankfort arsenal. The FA tumbler will do about a quarter of the Dillon capacity but does a better job for me.
  14. I shot a steel match this morning and of the 130 rounds used I had two rounds that didn’t go bang right off. This is better than I have been experiencing so maybe I’m headed in the right direction. I will call Dillon on Monday and talk to them about this issue. My Tanfoglio Stock 2 is set up as follows: extended PD firing pin, wolf reduced power firing pin spring and 14 pound hammer spring. I did remove 0.005” from my disconnector which gave me an additional 0.75mm of extended hammer arc. I might remove a bit more as the disconnector is still dragging on the frame but this is an issue for another time. Thank you to all who responded to my query and guided me towards a good outcome.
