Anyone out there who can tell me if the position of the casefeeder and the tube coming out of it are supposed to be straight on top of the opening where it actually gets inserted into the shellplate? I'm putting mine together and if the tube is perfectly staight up and down, it seems to be about an inch or two away from the spot where the tube meets the inserter. The support post for the case feeder is square tubing and the opening in the casefeeder is square and not adjustable for positioning, so what gives? Is the tube supposed to be at the funky angle going into the inserter? I probably have the terminology all wrong, because I don't have the instruction sheet. I'm having Dillon send me one, but figured someone here would know. Thanks in advance guys.

Hey Tom,

You called it!! That was my problem and now it'a all better. I just picked this unit up and it was already assembled and minus the manual. Dillon has one on the way, but I knew I could get an answer off a forum board quicker. Now I have to decide whether to keep this press and sell my 650 or vice versa. This 1050 is the non-Super one and is like new, but set up with the carbide Dillon 223 Rem. dies. I do reload for that caliber but would rather have this press set up for 45 ACP, but the toolheads and conversion kits for the 1050 are EXPENSIVE. Do you think the 1050 is that much better than the 650 to warrant such a higher cost? I think its built in primer pocket swager is a great idea. No more screaching halts everytime a piece of crimped primer military brass gets in my supply line. If there were someone local to the Los Angeles area who could lend me the conversion for 45 ACP for the press for me to try it out it would help in the decision making. Also, I have read a couple threads alluding to the Super version having some drawbacks when compared to the older version......any news on that? Thanks again for the assist.
