1050 and new Redding Premium Expanders?

Recommended Posts

I noticed that the M-die type powder funnels are not available in 44 special/mag, and I plan on loading those on my 1050 someday.  Any thoughts on replacing the Dillon expander on station 2 with one of these puppies?  No crimps to worry about on 44 special or magnum brass, so it looks possible.  Thoughts?  I am very happy with my 9mm PTX funnel from Unique Tek, and plenty of crimped brass in 9mm, so the swage rod is needed.

Meh... I don't think it would hurt, but I wouldn't spend the money to replace an existing die. If you were filling out a new head from scratch and you didn't need to worry about swaging primer pockets, then maybe...

FWIW, I reload both 44 and 357 magnum on a 1050 using Redding's competition seating dies and micrometer crimping dies. I'm a fan of both, but the standard Dillon expander has worked fine.
