Forster Precision Mic Seater S1050


Recommended Posts

I got around to trying to install my Forster Precision Mic Seater. I was aware that there are some clearance issues when installed on a S1050. I did have to trim the sliding sleeve so that it was flush with the bottom of the die.

Installing the die as per instructions the bottom of the die still protrudes too far below the tool head to allow the projectile to clear the die as the shell plate rotates.

It looks like the die has to be flush with the bottom of the tool head in order to allow the seated bullet to clear.

I'm thinking if I back the die out of the tool head to allow the bullet to clear I will lose the advantage of the sleeve that hold the case and the bullet in alignment to get that concentricity that these dies are valued for.

I could take my die to the machine shop and trim some more off the sleeve and this time the die in order to bring both flush with the bottom of the tool head.

Anyone have one of these seaters on a S1050 and have a solution?
