carinab Posted December 29, 2011 Share Posted December 29, 2011 (edited) My wonderful hubby is getting me a 1050 for my bday. I currently have a 550. I'm jumping into doing more 3Gun next year so here is my thinking for the 1050. I'm going to set it up for .40 as that is what I'll shoot all my IPSC matches with and I'll use the 550 for .223 as I'll only be loading the "precision" rounds on it. The 55gr's needed for CQB stages I can get for cheap so I don't know there is a point to loading them on the 1050. HOWEVER, since I have all the pistol caliber dyes I'd ever want to load, I was thinking of getting the .223 dies with the 1050 and then dropping the .40 dies into the toolhead ...Or can I not do that? IOW, can I use the tool head that comes with the .223 dies and put my .40 dies into it? And secondly, can I take the .223 dies and throw them on a 550 toolhead? Yeah, I could probably RTFM to get an answer but I figure someone on here already knows and will tell me straight... Thanks!
