    Anyone use a FFB shellplate for their 1050? I find that my OEM shellplate flexes, which causes issues with seating depth of my primers. No adjustments of the primer rod allows for the primer to be put in to proper depth. If I tighten the plate retaining nut too much, obviously it will stop the flex, but the plate then won't index.
    So, looking at getting an aftermarket one that's a bit more stout. Just don't want to throw down $100 on a new plate if it's snakeoil.

    The Brian Enos forum has some input on your shellplate.

    There is also a guy here in Anchorage who has a machine shop and has made a bunch of "improvements" for the Dillon 1050/650/550. I have all of his pieces and he just came out with a new shellplate that is supposed to stop any powder spill. He is still in his testing phase on his shellplate so I haven't had a chance to use one yet. Here is a link to the new shellplate. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sure-Grip-...hash=item33f8bce622:m:mkJ26WI72VI2rbi4jfxnDdQ

    The prices he has set are temporary as he had to put something in the ebay forms to get them listed.

    I have all of his improvements for my XL650 and can tell you for sure that each one is worthwhile to put on a press. FYI, I am not affiliated with Mark in any way other than I'm a customer of his.
