:confused: :confused: :confused:

I am looking for the machine for producing shotgun cartridge (12 GAUGE).
Therefore, I would like to ask you for help. If you have this machine, please give me the quotation. If not, please give me the suggestion where we can buy this machine.

The requirement of machine is showed as follow.

Automatically feed shell (or bullet jacket)
-Check wrong position (such as up side down) and height of shell
-Check end insulator
-Contain propellant
-Check the containing propellant to shell
-Open mouth of shell for easier contain other part to cartridge
-Automatically convey wad
-Check the level of height of low of wad and check up side down
-Feed wad into shell
-Check wad which contained in shell
-Contain shot(s)
-Check the quantity of shot
-Automatically feed end cover plate
-Make crimp at the mouth of shell
-Compress crimp at the mouth of shell
-Grind the mouth of shell after compressing crimp completed
-Final check
-Adjust cartridge direction and convey to contain into cartridge box
:) :p :p

Giving you a bump as we were discussing the same idea
last night. Hope you get somewhere

While we're waiting for someone who knows what they're doing to show up, I'll offer some conjecture:

You can get pretty close to your specs in metallic with a KISS (http://www.dawsonprecision.com/ProductDetail.jsp?LISTID=8000070F-1162833866) bullet feeder mated to a Dillon 1050 (http://dillonprecision.com/template/p.cfm?maj=30&dyn=1&cookieClean=1).

I'm not aware of a shotshell press that'll auto-feed the wad. Perhaps this'll be KISS's next project? I use a Dillon SL-900 but it misses your criteria.

Depending on location, get a factory tour and make note of who made the machines you're interested in and give them, and any obvious competitors, a call.

To get what you want, you will spend several million dollars buying a complete used setup from an existing shell manufacturer. Then you will have to pay people to operate the machines.

All the things you want a reloading press to preform are alittle unrealistic. Reloading is cheaper for a reason, you have to do some of the work.

I have a MEC 9000H that is about as automated as you are going to get. I will sell to you for $650.00 plus shipping.

This guy is a troll,, 2 posts on the same stupid requirements. I wonder if he wants a machine that does the work while he is out to dinner too.
