Dillon 1050 or wait for the 1100?
I’m looking to get one of these this year and trying to decide if the new one will really be better.

I will primarily load 40 S&W on it with maybe some .223. It will eventually get an AmmoBot auto drive. No, I don’t shoot enough yet to really need the 1050 over my 650. However, I want one so I’m going to buy one. Hahaha.

Best reason to buy one!

Since you already have a 650, I’d just wait a bit longer for that 1100.

By which time I might even be ready for a progressive reloader and be interested in taking that 650 off your hands Smile

I started with a 650 bought a 1050 last Christmas to load 223 with, the 1050 is at another level but the 650 is a bit more forgiving when there is a hiccup plus the lifetime warranty is a huge plus. from my understanding the 1100 has only a hand full of upgrades.

I don't see any real advantage to the 1100 to make a wait worth while, unless you plan to make it an automated ammo factory.
If you want to be the first "on your block," then wait.
