Simple but effectiveReview by JH - Arkansas

So, I have struggled with one particular pistol on FTF's, and have run the gamut looking at the pistol, firing pin, firing pin spring, etc., with slight improvements along the way but no 100% cure yet. THEN, I noticed somewhat erratic primer seating issues that even adjusting the primer seating ram and some other adjustments failed to eliminate (see Chris's post above, I've had a lot of same trial and error that he describes) . Ordered this Primer Hold Down Die from Everglades and I just got it all set up. I'm confident this has fixed the erratic primer seating using mixed brass after tinkering with my adjustments this afternoon. MUCH BETTER results on primer seating and I'm confident that this will either eliminate or at least help several problems that I've been experiencing. I will try to remember to return and update my review following firing a couple hundred test rounds from the problem pistol. Either way, this die DOES do exactly what it claims. The shellplate flex is now GONE, and that alone is a big improvement! (Posted on 2/10/2018)
EGA - Dillon 1050 Super - Primer Hold Down DieReview by Jess
Overall Rating
Installed the the die on my RL1050 had to turn the bushing down to 0.561.
Very easy to turn down using a drill press and a strip of quality sand paper.
Turn down process took about an hour going slow and checking dimensions.
Product is good however needs some sort of cushion on the bolt end for different
brass dimensions. Even so, works very well just food for thought on the cushion.
Highly recommend it (Posted on 12/1/2017)
Awesome. Fixed my high primer issueReview by Chris
Overall Rating
I load mixed 9mm range brass and due to slight differences in mfg. dimensions along with the small slop and flexing inherent in the dillon 1050 shell plate, I was getting too many high primers that would fail to fire on the first pull of the trigger.

Before buying the die, I worked on the the 1050 to try and solve the issue by tightening down the shell plate and raising the primer seater ram (all recommended actions by Dillon CS). These worked to a point, but I was still not getting consistent primer seating depths and was still running into a FTF on random rounds.

Since installing and setting up the EG die, my high primer issue has been completely resolved. Better yet, I get very consistent primer seating depths on all my mixed 9mm range brass. I would consider this die an absolute necessity if you are reloading mixed brass.

Note: In my efforts to solve my high primer issue, make sure you do not have the dillon swage backer die set too deep into the case. If so, no matter how high you raise the primer ram or deep you set the EG die, you will still get high primers since the swage backer rod will limit the press head movement. If using mixed brass, you need to back off the dillon swager backer rod up a bit to account for varying brass dimensions.

EG: Suggestion for future die enhancement would be to put a hard rubber tip on the end of the bolt that holds down the brass. Having some give or flex in primer hold down bolt may be useful.. although its just a hunch... maybe something to tinker with in the shop....

Love the die... and love EG bullets... (Posted on 8/29/2017)
Perfect!Review by Squad 3 Shooting Team

My Federal primers have to be fully seated for my tuned S&W 929s that I use for USPSA. This hold down removes all of the variation in seating, resulting in 100% reliable ignition! (Posted on 9/10/2016)
Fixed a Problem I Did Not Know I HadReview by Steve O
Overall Rating
Simple, cheap and functional. This tool resolved fluctuating primer seating depth issues I was having and solved occasional "Fail to Fire" issues stemming from the hammer fully seating the primer as it struck, but not retaining enough energy to set off the primer. As a bonus, it braces the shell plate and removes much of the flex in the shell plate at the bottom of the down stroke. A great product all-around. (Posted on 5/13/2016)
