  1. I will be waiting to see if it actually does anything for us with the 1050
  2. Does anyone have the case retainer you speak of? Did you just recommend something no one has tested?
  3. I had very bad problems with winchester small primers - to the point I swapped them out for CCI. Now I may have an issue every 500 vice every 30... significantly low compared to before. Most of my brass has a crimp so I started there, but it appears to me that WSP is not manufactured as well as cci and federal both insert into pockets and well winchester sometimes doesnt making for a big mess.
  4. what kind of primers are you using? Brand?
  5. Interested to hear the outcome. Don't neglect magazines, they inevitably are the number one issue with the AR platform, not that they are poorly designed, just the fact that feeding from a magazines which are worn or neglected have caused a fair share of stoppages. Feed lips, the follower, spring, casing all should be inspected from time to time to ensure they are still in spec.
  6. More info needed. Ammo type, specifically. S&W M&P15 - which one? Mag - not a clip, is the magazine new? Do you have more to try? After only 30 rounds, I would say you need more info. Clean the rifle thoroughly, then lubricate it liberally. Try 28 rounds in the magazine, then 27. Then try another magazine. 30 rounds is generally a bad idea with mags. Ensure you have FULLY seated the magazine, by inserting it into the mag well and then a firm tug, DONT SLAP THE BOTTOM OF THE MAG. Finally - if all that doesn't help then contact S&W.
  7. I chuck primers, crush primers, flip em upside down - basically I am low on small pistol primers, ran out and got 2 batches of Winchester... and now am loading 45 acp... so other than just the random SP Federal case in my stash I am at least making ammo I shoot.
  8. and here I am with both small pistol and large pistol and cannot go 20 rounds without an issue. CCI or Federal no issue - but 2 lots each and no joy.
  9. GL - you are gonna love it. ONE TIP - winchester primers... sell them to your buddies and get a different brand. FLUSH may be a bit close. I have about 2-2.5 inches from the edge (possibly a bit more)I used 3 4x4s cut 8 inches long to provide some meat below the table top.
  10. I still trim by hand on a wilson setup - I may have to do it as the hands get a fair work out after a few thousand
  11. I have one I have it - if you are looking for one, it needs a drop tube for the powder feeder - no clue where it is. IT has 45 223 dies and shell plates. Prolly could let it go for a good price. PM me or quote me and Ill get a ping.
  12. Just set up and ran a small batch of 223Rem... Wow, what a difference from a Lock N Load. Is there a tip for getting the tool set and the projectile tray on together? As it looks the brackets are one or the other, if the ammo tray had the extension on the back it would be AMAZING.
  13. Thanks for the feedback - and you are correct I have inspection/QC gear for final inspection of production. I thought the 1050 came with a roller handle, I will look into it. The press light, if you or anyone has a suggestion I am all ears.
  14. First off, wish my internet searches prior to purchase would have included this site! Tons of info that appears real. Reloaded close to 30k rounds on other presses before I took a few years off - switching to Dillon hits the wallet hard and I realize small and large primers ups the cost even more - few questions to minimize frustration and having a press idle as I wait for parts. But as any FNG with less sense than time I must ask, did I miss something on my purchase? Intent is to run .223 REM and 9mm Luger to start, then eventually get to my .45ACP. I single stage my .308 right now for my bolt action and get great (OUTSTANDING) groups when I do my part - I imagine the s1050 could replicate that if I get her dialed in - or close enough that I may have to get a rifle that unloads those rounds faster. All my .223 is lake city with the crimped primer pocket, hence the S1050 Most of my .308 is also lake city with a crimp 9mm - just got into the pinking round, dont have brass yet, but I have a tool that will unload it quickly so I gotta load this round now. Did I miss anything for 223 and 9mm? S1050 in .223 carbide powder check alarm bullet tray (wish they would throw that in...) S1050 Caliber Conversion Kit 9mm Dillion 9mm Dies Small Pistol Casefeed plate Powder Funnel 9mm Decapping pistol pins 10pk .223 Spare Decap Assembly and extra pin And might of accidentally gotten a RF100 in Small Primer (but let us not tell the wife of that just yet). Is there anything glaring that I missed? Yes eventually I will get extra tool heads, and the trimmer, currently I do trimming on a wilson trimmer, its boring, but gives the old mind a rest and lets me have a drink while I tap away. Thank you for your time and I look forward to some advice.
