1050 automation, what one!

Recommended Posts

Finally going to jump into a auto drive.  I don’t think I want to send my machine off to have a fortch drive added, so I guess it will come down to a Mark 7 or AmmoBot.

 

There is a 20% off sale that AmmoBot has going so, $1200 or so for the Bot seems to be a heck of a deal. 

 

Is there any other drive worth considering?  What are you veterans opinions on automation?  

 

Looking forward to your thoughts!

Yeah, I think the ammobot looks great, and given the sale I think its pretty much a easy choice.  Just wanted to ask what thoughts were here and to ensure its running reliably.

I have a Mark VII on mine and absolutely love it. Best addition besides the Bullet feeder that I’ve done to the press. I like the different sensors and the ability to control everything from the tablet. 

 

I have no experience with any other autodrive.

How did you get a counter on your case feeder? Nice setup

I went on eBay and pretty much found everything to do this for under $20 couple simple switches and inexpensive counter low-voltage transformer.

I'm in the same boat and will go with the Ammobot through Imortoarms.

 

The sale is very tempting

I think I’m going ammobot!!!  The $1500 extra cost doesn’t seem like it’s worth it to get the mk7

I will now have both. Looking at the AB as more of a processing tool, but we'll see. Feel free to ask any questions.

 

The sale is putting it at a great price.

I've been running an Ammbot several years. I started with the Rev 2 but I have the Rev 3 now. I'm extremely happy with my decision to buy the Ammobot. The Ammobot is the best deal on the market. It is a high quality product and it works as advertised; no exceptions. Customer service and support is top notch.

I'd jump on that 20% asap. Also get the primer pocket probe. You won't regret your purchase.

Yes, did this a few days ago!!  I’m pumped about it.  Hard to beat that sale they had.  Now the wait... i hope it’s not to bad.  I was told maybe 3 weeks.  We will see!

Same can’t wait to run it on a 1050. Should be the same experience as the 1100 right?

Assume so!  I really saw no reason to look R the 1100 vs 1050’s.  

 

Im sure they will be nice but no need for me:)

had a Mark7, for my 650 and then 1050, ended up selling both to run them by hand. If I had to try it again i would go AB.

I have heard others with a similar story M7 to AB.  I have also talked with a few commercial loading guys that also said AB.   Why I went AB. 

 


 

I placed an order for 2 AB before their sale.  4 days later they do the sale and AB contacts me to say its now on sale and refunded me the full 20% on both without me asking for it.   Wow.    Still waiting for them to ship but counting it down.

That is pretty awesome service. Congrats on your 2 new toys. Cannot wait to get my bot shipped.

I ordered an Ammobot and an RL1100 for barely more than the Mk7 alone costs.
