New press BFR

Heavy bugger, trimmer is still in route. I went with the 5 dollar tag sale grinder stand that I welded a plate on and drilled the mount holes. If anyone has one of these, do you have any thoughts regarding concave vs flat anvil for seating primer? Thx

Looks like something for loading 50 BMG?? If so, then I can't answer your ? If not, the concave primer punch is for ancient round bottom primers that haven't been made for well over 60 years.

Dillon BFR 50BMG Reloading Machine!!!

Nice ... :D

Good job on the stand too ...

Dillon reccomends using the concave punch for seating as not to crush the primer. The flat bottom is used to crush the concave nature of the primer slightly in benchrest shooting and decrease lock time. This is just from their paperwork and the 2 anvils provided. Not sure how others feel. Yes it is a 50/Big Fifty Reloader. Thx guys

OIC! I thought it stood for Big eFfin Reloader, or for big eFfin Rifle(s).

Got a pic of the rifle? I always wanted one, but unfortunately I didn't get it before I retired. Now it's out of the question, can't afford to feed the ones I do have.

The trimmer for 50 BMG is a South Bend metal lathe, isn't it ? :D

It can be

or a slone and chace

Or my bigger Rivett

but I will use the die head version (yes I recognize I have issues :)

I wish I had those kind of issues. :)

these 'issues' result in an immediate loss of floor and bench space along with a sore back
