    I have used the Dillon collators successfully over 4000/hr pistol and over 2000/hr for rifle. You can’t over load them though.

    Looks like a winner! If someone gets inspired by one of my projects, I feel the time wasn’t wasted.

    I am interested in knowing how to go from an image of something to a specific output. Is this an “off the shelf” software? Something like this. But instead of saying phone/car, apply a different output for each, like a grounding output/5...

    Maybe they wanted it to be like the Hornady LNL where the bushings self detach.? Don’t get me wrong, I like quick change but there needs to be positive retention once I put it there.

    Title says it all. Thinking about a headstamp sorting machine and can do the mechanical side, just need to learn the optical scanner/output part.

    Why? If you could seat with the exact same force precisely, what good would that do for you? You would just wind up with a range of different OAL’s because of slight differences in the components or how they were prepared.

    How do you discontinue something that already exists? Maybe because it was in the past? Like I discontinued eating after I took my last bite... Maybe instead of a New Years party we should be having a “discontinue last year” party.

    A forum member asked me about a fix for the ski ramp on the 650. I just use a little section of vinyl tubing but have been playing around with the 3D printer and found this one https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2311782 and printed a copy. This is...

    No reason to find an old thread to post the device you made. You should start a new thread just for it and post more photos and details, maybe even a video.

    It does have a place by hand single feed priming system, page 13. http://dillonhelp.com/Dillon%20Manual%20PDFs/BL550Manual.pdf I can promise you that a decent hand priming system will be faster than putting each individual primer into a cup,...

    jmorris replied to a thread Dillon 550BL in Reloading Equipment
    His point is that you cannot do that very easily with the BL550. It can’t be, insert case, add powder, add bullet, pull and repeat. Because there is no priming system, the sizes and deprimes case must be removed from the press to seat a primer...

    jmorris replied to a thread Dillon 550BL in Reloading Equipment
    Personally I wouldn’t buy the BL, I would get the C and use it as I would the BL. Why? Because the 550 C will be worth more and it would cost more to later buy the added components to upgrade the BL to the C. That’s just me though. Sure as I...

    As far as breaking and pull out, shot loads in rifled barrels pattern better (ok they still are not great but) if you are not pushing them to maximum velocity’s. You can’t help but run them pretty hot in semiautos to get them to run but in...

    This old desk served me pretty well for a decade or so. I think by the time I burned it, it had more weight in scabbed on boards and steel then it weighed to begin with.
