Awesome! I look forward to your review as I'm still on the fence.Since I've heard nothing here other than an "no" for unspecified reasons, I checked out a few reviews and YouTube videos of the swager in action.
@ $88 plus shipping, I can afford to gamble that it will work. I'll post a review in this forum after I receive the device and try it out.
My plan, if the GS swager works, is to use a universal decapper @ station 1; swager @ station 2, and the Dillon power trimmer with sizing die probably @ station 4.
I'd then, of course, run all the processed brass back through for priming, powder, and seating.
Sorry Walter, Uncle Sam has me over in Eastern Africa looking for bad guys. Internet access for me can be hit and miss.Since I've heard nothing here other than an "no" for unspecified reasons
I don't know about you but if their is a viable option to use on the 650 I currently own for $88, then I'd rather do that then spend $1600 on a 1050. I'm not looking to commercially process brass. Just wanting to reduce the amount of time I spend processing by eliminating how many times I have to have to handle the brass.Most people that I know that are serious about processing military brass just get a 1050. Press mounted solution right there.
Hardehardeharharhar! The more I think about how sturdy that shellplate is, the less I believe that the upward pressure of swaging will damage it. Can you imagine the amount of force required to bend a 650 shellplate? That's the only part that could possibly be damaged, as far as I can tell.Too bad Walter can't put the decapper, the GS swager, and Dillon trimmer
on a Lee progressive with casefeeder (that's the part of the Lee that does work).
Then he can prep brass on one machine and load on the other.
I have never damaged a Dillon shell plate in over 30 years but did you know that the fellow that sells the swager also sells tool steel shell plates for Dillon machines?Hardehardeharharhar!

Makes me wonder why he thought a market would exist for a stronger shell plate. As I have never damaged one in more than a million rounds loading on a dozen Dillons for almost 30 years (using them as intended).Buy the shell plate that Dillon is worried about. He knows these are far better than the plates they sell. If you break the lips on my shell plate I will give you two of them in return.
Ah, I see. Well then, he will put a moment on that center bolt.Yep, he already has it on the sat too.
He can't swage on 3 though, you take apart the priming system and it replaces parts of it to swage, so it has to happen on #2.
It would be impossible to be swaging and trimming on a 650 at the same time.. Trimming happens when the ram is all the way up and swaging would be all the way down.
