Our Evolution™ reloading press is a commercial grade loading press that has been modified to meet the needs of high volume reloaders. With its 10-die station design, the Evolution™ gives you more flexibility and options than any of the competition! The precision CNC machined construction and super smooth operation says “quality” every time the handle is cycled. In addition, the press can be upgraded for fully automatic operation with our Autodrive system and digital controls, as well as our wide array of sensors. The Evolution™ can work with most off-the-shelf reloading dies and supports a variety of accessories. The manual Evolution™ can produce up to 1200 rounds per hour making it the perfect choice for competitive shooters looking to quickly make large quantities of top-quality ammo.

Designed for automation, and for many optional upgrades, which include the Mark 7® Automatic Primer collator, the Mark 7 Evolution™ Autodrive and the complete suite of Mark 7® Sensors and parts.
If you own a Mark 7® 1050 Pro/X Autodrive, it can be modified for use on an Evolution™ with the purchase of a conversion kit.

  • Tool head size: The Dillon presses have 5 where the Evolution™ has 10.
  • The Evolution™ has CNC and Billet construction.
  • The Evolution™ is easier to automate and works better when automated: Dillon presses were not made to be automated.
  • The Evolution™ offers more sensor options if you choose to automate.

Yes, when used with an Evolution™ Autodrive.

The ease and time required to change calibers depends on both your primer size and level of experience.  Small calibers can take as little as 30 minutes or less with all necessary accessories. Small to large caliber or large to small caliber changes could take up to an hour depending on the number of pieces changed.

No special tools are needed, but a good Allen wrench set is recommended. It will take about an 1 hour to 90 minutes to get the press set up* meaning the press is physically set up but not ready to load on: that will take another 1 to 2 hours. The necessary step are:

  1. Install the sensors
  2. Set up and adjust the bullet feeder and case feeder
  3. Set dies
  4. Set the sensors
  5. Set powder measure charge, etc...

In all, you should expect to spend approximately 90 minutes to set up a manual press, or approximately 3 or more hours for an automated press with sensors.

Yes, provided that they are standard thread dies.

Very easy: Simply install your Evolution™ Autodrive which typically requires 30 - 45 minutes on average.
