    $12.59 a hundred, holy crap... that's 5 cents a bullet more than the last time I bought bulk. Plus shipping.

    I don't even think they are really in stock. I ordered 2,500 and just checked the status online. Still in stock and they let me a $20,000 worth in my cart. Prices are up and it sucks, but I need components for my 1050:supergrin:

    Your gonna sell your 650 to load more than one caliber on a 1050? What are you going to size and trim with?

    PV hasn't raised their prices. The 100 packs have always been more expensive per bullet than buying 1k or 2k. They just got a huge shipment from Hornady, so I'm guessing the 1k & 2k cases were gone after filling backorders. I still haven't gotten an invoice for the 2k I backordered, so they probably didn't get enough to fill all of them.

    I reload 4 calibers and I have three reloading presses. I like the idea of a 1050 but honestly the 650 is way more press than I need. Other than processing 223 I haven't needed to touch my presses this year.

    Hopefully C4W does not read this, but I am going to make a video on how it sucks first. :rofl:

    Damn it.. Nosy :whistling:

    What do you mean, Feak thinks the 1050 sucks? Come on really!!

    I have read some of his post on Calguns he states its not needed to produce the same volume of ammo (almost) But I have never heard anyone saying the 1050 sucks, let alone that a 650 is better.

    IIRC, Freak bought one used and never could get it running properly.

    I can't remember what the issue with his was? Wasn't it the feeding of the brass into the shell plate?

    Negative. I bought it new from Dillon directly. Had some primer system issues that got worked out, .223 brass I was using was known as junk and problematic to reload (FC stamp) due to softness, swage rod broke, toolhead return spring wore prematurely and wouldn't hold the toolhead up, and that stupid ratchet setup is in the trash. Took a while to get used to it and get things worked out. It runs just fine now and has been for a while.

    Yeah, and they said a while back they weren't going to raise prices with the demand surge. Prices would remain the same. I doubt their cost went up at all. I can still buy a 6,000ct case of Hornady 55gr FMJ for $60/K from a distributor and I'm sure PV is getting them direct from Hornady for cheaper than that.

    PV is still selling them in bulk for about $90/k, I just put 2k on backorder a couple weeks ago. They haven't raised their prices. It seems like everyone else is selling 100 packs for over $20. Like I said, the 100 packs have always been more expensive per bullet.

    Believe it or not he did most of his commercial loading on a Dillon RL450.

    I started loading commercially on a 550. I have been loading commercially on a 1050 since 2009 and got rid of the 550 in 2011.
