RickT Posted January 1, 2017 Share Posted January 1, 2017 (edited) got my new press running 99.9% and couldn't be happier. I do find that the stock PTX doesn't create the best flare for my coated 115gr 9mm bullets so I need to relax on the upstroke and let the spring do its job unlike my LNL where I'm seating primers. I use a Mr. BF PTX on my LNL and bought one for the 1050 to try. It worked very well, but as has been reported tends to "grab" the case mouth on the upstroke, something I never noticed on my LNL. I can't imagine this is doing any harm to the press and my return to the Mr. BF component. Has anyone else experienced this and, if so, what are your thoughts? It's not that I'm looking for more speed, but I'm so focused on the powder level that occasionally a tipped over bullet will sneak by me. I'm thinking of putting together a camera system which will further take my attention away from the shell plate so I want my incidence of tipped over bullets to go to zero (and I don't want to expand any more than necessary). Update: I did find the original discussion from 2015, Here. I'll try backing off on the PTX just a bit and see what happens. I'm reluctant to eliminate the swaging stage as suggested by some since when I buy once-fired brass I do encounter crimped primers. In the early thread Rick Koskela also suggested looking a shell plate play and I can investigate that when I lube things up.
