Full automatic reloading? Dillon 1050 + Mk 7 mod?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I just love watching (but not paying for) one of these working.

It loads up empty cases faster than I could empty them.

 

Do any SASS cowboys have one of these in operation?

I'll post another one too.

We have 1050’s with Ammobots at We The People Munitions. Automated loading is not for the faint of heart. Fun to watch. Very challenging to kerp running.

I wouldn't like the lack of control that I feel I would lose. Deuce showed Kaya and I a video of his running. Cheater! Lol. Way above my comfort zone

I've thought about a dedicated 1050 with a Mark Seven for reloading 5.56.  Price of the automation was more than the press.  Then I figured I would be kept busy loading the powder hopper, bullets, cases and primers tubes keeping the machine fed, so where is my time savings?

One piece of Amerc brass would jam up the whole works.  Then there is the occasional piece of 357 brass that gets into my 38 special collection.  Lets not forget the small rock that gets lodged inside a case and the occasional primer that gets turned sideways in the primer cup.  If I feel something is wrong, I stop and investigate.  I don't think the motor has that ability.

Yes the motor has the ability, called torque sense.  It's not really the motor but the software run on the tablet.  Im running a 1050 with the mark 7.  Love it.  Run normally about 1500 rph.  Rocks are also no problem.  I've also got the laser sensor to make sure the bullet is present, or not upside down.  If either, the system stops. Has a wonderful optical powder sense, primer de-cap sensor.  both will stop the marine if a failure is detected.  If you get a piece of 357 all the way through the stations, it will fail when it comes to crimping the bullet.  The laser will detect the wrong size case.  

 

It is expensive, but the time saved for me is well worth the price.  Funny in retirement my time is way more important to me.  The 1050 is dedicated to pistol ammo.  Ive got a 650 with a mark 7 for rifle and all my wild bunch ammo.

Good information. Thanks for sharing.  Did not realize the option to all the sensors.

Yep, nothing against those who go the automated route, but I timed myself, and I can easily load 700 rounds an hour on my 650, including sorting the brass, loading the primer tubes, everything.  That's plenty fast enough for me.  3 hours a month loads all we need.

Just went out and looked at the machine.  I was wrong on one item.  The motor also has the ability to sense problems.  Call a digital clutch.  All these sensors are adjustable to the sensitivity desired.  I have mine set really low, so it does stop on any problem detected, the torque sense will also sense a split case.  In that during the sizing portion, it is too easy.  It's nice as the sensor that fails is displayed on the tablet, so you know exactly where the problem is.

I got you all beat! My automatic reloading system even has voice recognition. All I have to do is yell, "boys, we need more ammo loaded".

 

Except sometimes that doesn't work the first few tries...

Both my dishwashers work the same way, but no way I'm letting those two loose on my Dillon.  In fact they're not even allowed in the garage when my car is parked in there.

You are missing the point of getting a Dillon. You gotta get your money's worth by using it to it's limits and taking advantage of free replacement parts.

Fun to watch, yes, but I reckon I'm too faint of heart to run one.  I like being able to feel what is going on with my 650 as I run it.  Seating primers I can tell the headstamp of the brass more often than not just by the feel.  And loading just for me, the 650 is fast enough.

 

But more power to them what wants full automation.  Just gotta find a way to refill the primer tube, bullet feeder, and case feeder automatically.

Not to mention, automating your Dillon 650 voids the lifetime warranty. Check Dillons website for info.

True.  The 1050 doesn't come with a life time warranty :)
