The reason you are likely looking at a progressive press in the first place is due to speed – speed being a combination of technology and ergonomics. While there are several options within the Dillion Family itself, we have looked beyond, to specialist, boutique suppliers that will enable you to hotrod your Dillion.
Powder Check System
In my opinion, another of the ‘must have’ additions to the 1050. Because we have auto-indexing on this machine, and therefore the plan is to run it faster, we also increase the risk of a no, or low powder charge.
While I would like to think you are going to notice an empty powder hopper, checking at the case end covers off a couple of potential issues at the same time.
This isn’t a replacement for paying attention, but if you are trying to doing things at speed – this is an excellent check for yourself.
Inline Fabrication Ultramount System
Unless you are particularly short, or, set up the entire system to work from a sitting position, the standard press mounted to a table, is likely to actually be far too short to be the most ergonomic setup for you. Certainly, at 6-foot-1-andabit, the standard setup was too short for me to comfortably use for any decent amount of time. So the first thing to do is get it lifted up to a better working height.
Inline Fabrication makes a series of mounting systems for all manner of presses. Lifting the unit up and providing more footprint (meaning more stability) – the mounts also provide the space to start adding on other accessories to really ramp up your reloading.
Inline Fabrication makes their mounts to a higher standard than the Dillion Ones, and, should you change in the future – the top plate can be swapped out for a new plate, or, install the quick-change system and save bench space!
Inline Fabrication Swinging Bin
While most of the consumables are already covered with the case feeder (and the Mr Bullet I am going to suggest you also pick up) it’s handy to have other items close by – this is a bin and a bracket that can hold tools and bits for you.
Inline Fabrication Ergo Roller Handle
Finally, replace the standard handle with a roller model. Not only easier on the hands, but the angled shaft also makes the stroke easier on the back.
Mr Bullet Feeder
You have the cases being feed automatically, why are you still manually feeding bullets in there as well? It’s not going to take up any additional footprint on your bench and it is one more thing you don’t have to worry about. All you will need to do it pull the handle. Actually, since we are talking about that…
It’s a 1050 – you are after speed. Let’s just automate this whole process and we can get onto the really juicy bit…
The Mark 7 1050 Autodrive
Yeah. This is pretty much a reloaders wet dream. Interested? Get in touch with us and we can basically set you up as a semi-commercial reloader.
