Rifle and Pistol
The Dillon Super 1050 will produce match-quality ammo for over 35 different rifle and pistol calibers. Priced starting at $1799.95, the Super 1050 comes complete with one caliber conversion, dies, case feeder, low primer alarm and the primer feed for the corresponding primer size for whatever cartridge you order it for.
THE BASICSThe basic Super 1050 includes:
- Auto indexing shellplate
- 1 set of dies
- Built in primer pocket swager
- Automatic powder measure system
- Automatic priming system
- Electric casefeeder
- Low Primer Alarm
- Powder scale
- Reloading Handbook
- Dial caliper
- Primer flip tray
- Case lube(for bottleneck cartridges)
To change calibers, you will need:
- Die set
- Caliber Conversion Kit
- You may need a different casefeed plate. Please refer to the caliber conversion chart in the Instruction Manual.
- If changing primer sizes, you will need the appropriate primer system conversion (#20476-Large, #20419-Small)
- Powder die(#20064)
- OR the Super 1050 Quick Change, which includes a powder measure, powder die, and a toolhead. This allows you to leave your dies and powder charge set up and dedicated to a specific cartridge for faster, easier caliber changes.
Operating circumstances will dictate the frequency of required lubrication. It is highly recommended that the Super 1050 be cleaned and lubed after every 10,000 rounds of operation. Use a high-grade, conventional wheel bearing grease - do not use oil except as indicated below.
- Casefeed Plunger (#13073*), lube the sides and bottom.
- Casefeed Plunger Roller (#13498) and Bolt (#13333)
- Tappet (#12995)
- Rocker Arm (#13058), cam surfaces and hole.
- Pivot Bolt (#13296)
- Primer Punch Base (#12849 - large or #13307 - small)
- Lube the Indexing Lever Cam surface (#10064) and Index Lever Shoulder Bolt (#13276). With the handle in the rest position, you will see the Index Roller (#10996) come into contact with the Lever Cam surface. The Index Roller (#10996) also requires periodic lubrication.
- Alignment Pins (#12972 & #13515 located under the toolhead)
- Cam Guide Bolt (#12486) and its mated slot
- Toolhead Bore (#20420 - lightly to avoid rusting and/or freezing up)
- Mainshaft Lubrication – Use only 30 weight motor oil. DO NOT use a penetrating lubricant such as WD-40, Breakfree, etc…
- Swage Connecting Rod (#13417) and Clevis Pin (#13522)
- Shellplate lock ring (#20311), bottomsurface to shellplate face.
- Shellplate center hole. It’s easiest to lubricate the shellplate center hole when changing from one caliber to another. We recommend that you use a droplet of Blue Loctite on the threads of the following bolts prior to reinstalling:
#13333, #13296, and #13276 (see photos and schematics).
With the handle in the rest position, on the left side of the machine:
- Use a grease syringe to lube the bearing pin (#11009) located in the link arm (#11063).
- Then, cycle the handle down to the bottom stop.
- Again, using the grease syringe, lube the mainshaft pivot pin (#10994) on the left side of the machine via the access hole located 1.2" above the carrier cap (#11010).
- Use 30 weight motor oil on the mainshaft (#10999).
- Towards the back of the machine, lube the indexing lever cam surface (#11064) and index lever shoulder bolt (#13276).
- First remove the swage rod assembly, swage connecting rod, and operating handle.
- On the left side of the machine, use a 5/32" Allen wrench to remove the screw (#13685).
- Slide the carrier cap (#11010) out of its bore and lube the left-hand side roller bearing (#11008) and carrier cap.
- Next, slide the crankshaft (#11061) out of the frame from the right side of the machine BUT NO MORE THAN 3/4".
- Using a grease syringe, dispense some grease onto the right-hand side roller bearing (#11008).
- Next, lube the crankshaft surface (#11061).
- Then, reinsert the crankshaft fully into the frame.
- Reinstall the carrier cap (#11010).
- Blue Loctite must be used on the threads before installation, tighten.
- Finally, reassemble the swage component and operating handle back onto the frame, lube the swage connecting rod (#13417) and clevis pin (#13522).
