This product is now discontinued. Please see the AmmoBot Rev3 Auto Drive to purchase. Click here for info.
There are many people out there that have Dillon 1050 presses. Those who wish to run the press at or above the 1200 rounds per hour that the 1050 is rated for must risk repetitive stress injuries and cause the press to shake so much is begins to malfunction. People can buy expensive machines to automate the press, but they require modification to the 1050 and cannot be run interchangeably. Many existing automation machines also must have the speed specified at the time of order and cannot be changed by the end user.
The machine we have designed requires no modification to the 1050. It works using the existing handle, so you can run the machine manually during setup or to fix any malfunctions. You can adjust the speed of the machine at will just by turning a dial. It also allows for much smoother operation than running the machine manually.
All AmmoBot machines are built to order. The lead time to shipment listed above is the time from the date of order until the date of shipment.
Dillon Super 1050 and bullet feeder are NOT INCLUDED.
Product Note: It is highly recommended that you use case lubricant on ALL ammunition processed on an AmmoBot/1050 setup. We recommend using 1-2 shots of Dillon Case Lube per hopper full of brass for pistol cases and 2-3 shots per hopper full on rifle cases. Case lubricant stops the brass from smearing upon resizing and also decreases the chance of motor slippage.
Also, if you want to make sure to get the most out of your 1050, you should consider the Shellplate Bearing Kit w/ low mass ball for Dillon 1050 from Level 10 Innovations. We use it on our machines and it is huge help. We also recommend the Specialty Guide Rod Kit to help maintain tool head alignment.
