    Gotta say I’m a bit disappointed to hear this about Whidden as I was planning on buying a set of dies from him. Has he been contacted and what was his response to these problems?

    Default Dillon XL 650 improvements

    I didn't see a thread dedicated to XL 650 improvements, feel free to consolidate this with an existing thread if I missed it.

    I've bought a number of 650 upgrades over the last couple years from snowshooze on Ebay. These are the two latest.

    The primer stop is a big help: http://nankoweap.com/boards/primer_feed_cam.mp4

    The ring indexer actuator makes thing run a little smoother: http://nankoweap.com/boards/ring_indexer_actuator.mp4

    Bear with me for this pitch. The link is to an article for a USB stick that adds an AI component to a laptop.

    https://www.cnet.com/news/faster-new...our-pc-for-99/

    One of the examples of use is the following.
    That speedup is useful for people like Peter Ma, who combined a first-generation Neural Compute Stick with a microscope and laptop to create a device that spots bacterial contaminants in a flow of water. The first prototype scans 3 or 4 frames per second, but the new stick bumps it up to 20, so there's less chance something will flow past unspotted, Ma said.
    If this can visually identify things that look out of place, then some smarty pants, high volume reloader could probably figure out a way to use this as a second set of eyes when reloading large batches.

    The 750 discussion triggered my thinking on this. I have a 550, 650, and 1050. My only gripe with the 1050 is that I find the ergonomics of the bullet feeding hand to be awkward. The finished cartridge container forces me to hold my left hand and arm in an uncomfortable position. I find I prefer the position on the 650 much better.

    Anyone done anything about adding a support for the left hand or relocating the finished cartridge bin on a 1050?

    I added a bulletfeeder to my 1050s.

    Before then I placed the bullet on top of the case as it moved towards the seat station.

    I also added the spill stop button. Makes the case index much smoother.

    That spill stop deal looks good. I'll be ordering some for the 1050 and 650.

    Any issues setting up the bullet feeder? I'd like one, I just have always assumed they weren't reliable.

    The Mr Bulletfeeder is awesome and well worth the cost. Swing by and take a peek.
