    If you have a Dillon 1050 you can use it to prime your ammo as long as you have a shell plate that will hold the case in question. I prime my PRS ammo on my 1050 (also size as well). I did some testing and found that I actually had a slightly lower ES and SD when the ammo was primed on the 1050 vs hand priming. Ran the test 3 times to be sure before I switched for good.

    I love the Dillon priming system with exception of 650. The 1050 is like a sewing machine and so easy to adjust. I have started to do small batches of (50) and like hand priming those and doing things I wouldn’t do for .5 MOA rounds...

    You know after it bottoms out press gently to feel the crush.
    Seat rotate seat then deform slightly. Measure for consistancy.
