Default My Dillon makes a new bullet every 2.5 seconds..

Finally got the parts I needed from Dillon to repair and service my Dillon 1050.
Spent 3 hours in my workshop slowing adjusting/replacing and testing dozens of old .45 brass. Got her done..!

She's dedicated to .45 auto now. I like shooting .45 200 grain Semi-Wad-Cutters thru my GLOCKs and 1911s. Makes a neat hole.

She is pumping out a new bullet (if I do my job) every 2.5 seconds. What a change from the 550B I used a few days ago to build some 10MM. Still waiting on a case feeder part for that machine.

I will crank out a few hundred rounds for the Kids. (and one Grandson who's 14)...gonna be fun.

Unique/5.2 grains/CCI LP Primers/old ratty cases that I vibrated shiny.

Why would a man with such good taste in machinery have a dime-store, plastic, el-cheepo dial caliper like that...

You have a 1050 dedicated for .45 auto? Awesome.

Ahhhhh...me-loves dem SWC's as well.

My H&K USP Compact 45 digests them nicely. And I also love the large holes they leave on paper targets. (Great competition tool). But my 1911 Wilson Combat mags will not work with them.

Took me a while to figure this out. But when I did, it was back to the 200-grain RN boolits again.

Boy...it must be nice to have a 1050 solely dedicated to. 45 ACP.

Nice.

Now you need a bullet feeder and you can cut that time in half.

Bullet = Projectile. The finished product is called a cartridge.
