Is it Christmas Yet?


Recommended Posts

I've got a Dillon 1050 in a cardboard box sitting 4 feet to my left and I am loading a couple hundred 9mm's on my Rock Chucker single stage press. Not fair. Actually I think it is a Dillon 1050 but I have to wait till Christmas morning to find out. :rolleyes:

It's a 1050 alright. :D What an awesome machine. This thing is built like any number of industrial machines I have worked on over the years. All of a sudden my other consumer/hobbyist looking stuff doesn't belong on the bench with it. Very impressive.

I unboxed it last night then started setting it up around 6AM. It really went better than I thought. Instructions were decent but not great. A fair amount of time was spent setting up the powder measure and powder check which is working well at this point. After that the only thing I had to adjust was the bullet seat depth.

Finished up around 11AM with about 150 finished rounds from fitting and test runs. I'm having one technical issue but I'll start a new thread for that.

The primer charging is better than I expected. The metal pickup tray is great and I wish I had one years ago. Picking up primers with the plastic tips is a breeze so I can fill a tube in no time. The spent primer tray was catching 50% of the ejected primers so that was annoying. But I remembered the mod I saw here so I sawed off the one .223 case I had, attached a tube and that problem is solved.

I does set me back when I look at it; loading a batch was a multi day process and now I can crank out enough rounds for a month in a couple hours. Maybe I will actually have some time to go to the range now...
