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.
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 Input/Output Bins
Once you have the Ultramount in place – you can start bolting bins on to bring your working space closer together. The dual bin system consists of a bin in front for empty cases, a bin behind for completed bullets and a modified ramp to direct finished rounds to the rear bin.
This significantly reduces the amount you need to move your hands to grab a new case to put into the machine. Speeding the process up considerably.
Inline Fabrication Double Bullet Tray
Much like the Input/Output Bins – the Double Tray is designed to get the projectiles closer to the process – minimising hand movements and increasing ergonomics. Twin bins give you one bin for projectiles and another to keep tools and parts handy.
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.
