As with everything, and everyone who has tried to kill me...

I have once again vanquished my opponent... this time the 'Terrible Toy'.

Ignoring the instructions of Board Certified doctors, laughing off the warnings of well meaning nurses and sneaking around so my daughter and son-in-law wouldn't catch me, (I bribed the grandkids with bubble gum and folding currency to keep quiet), I finally got the almost deadly Dillon 1050 installed.

It took longer than I had anticipated, I couldn't understand why I kept getting so tired and short of breath. In between blowing bubbles and demanding ever increasing bribes my grandson pointed out that I kept standing on my oxygen hose. (I am as of yet undecided if I'm going to let him get any older.)

Had to do a bit of remolding to get it to fit in the only open space on the benches. (Could have used Little Stevie's expertise in construction but I managed to muddle through it.)

The Co-Ax press needed to be moved 4 inches to the right to allow for unobstructed operation of the handle and the Star sizer went to the left 4 inches so the swimming pool sized catch bin could be attached. Luckily the case feeder hopper is far enough to the rear of the press to offer me an unobstructed view of the flat screen.

This is a good lesson for all the newbs out there... always pay careful attention to detail when adding and mounting new equipment.

For all you Blue Smurf lovers out there who may think that I have defected to the other side let me be the first to dash your incorrect assumptions upon the rocks.

To the left of the 1050 is a bench with 2 RED LNL's. To the right is a bench with 2 BLUE Dillons. The uninformed might think that the addition of the 1050 might make the count 3 BLUE machines to 2 RED machines. HA!!! The 1050 is not blue... it's gun metal grey! Count the RED Co-Ax and the two RED MEC's and the actual count isn't even close.

Hope to give the machine it's initial workout tomorrow and see how long it takes me to screw it up. I'm guessing no longer than 6 minutes.

One of these days I'll actually learn how to take a good picture.

Oh, BTW... Cliffhanger with Sly Stallone was on the TV... figured I'd say it before Wisky did.

Very nice.

I see it got prime real estate, right in front of the flat screen.

All this means is Jack is going to load 90% of his ammo on a Dillon now. If Hornady made a press that cost $2,500 Jack would have been the first person to buy it I think. Well as long as a swaged primer pockets so he can use his ancient and free .45 brass.

Lots of screwdriver holders with all those holes left behind from you redecorating every other week.

Jack, PM me you phone number and Saturday I'll ring you up. I'll leave my phone in the back yard and you can listen to the race live while you run your 1050...

Fragile health, tethered to a hose delivering the very breath of life itself and teetering on the abyss of oblivion but yet you feel the twisted need to torture me with the live sounds of a race I can't attend.

I hop the spectators become unruly and decide to urinate on your lawn and litter your doorstep with beef jerky wrappers.

Interesting. The handle on the 1050 is about the same height as the handle on the Star. That means I could put the 1050 on my 42 " bench and probably like it. Of course I never raise the Star handle to to top when I load so the 1050 may still be a little high.

Don't know if it's good yet... have to see if it takes more than a single digit IQ to operate it.

Wait, Lizard runs one and he's a Marine... I should be good to go.

There is no other better feeling when you are your own ammo store.

Standing on your own oxygen hose. Makes me start to thinking.

Jack, have you been on a commercial flight lately? Those flight briefings that those stewards / stewardesses always give happens to come to mind. What you need is an overhead oxygen mask deployment system over your reloading bench.

At least you wouldn't be found suffering from oxygen deprevation at altitude.

I don't know about you but I am still holding out for some hot 20 year old's husband to shoot me in the back of the head for cause.
