Unfortunately, this not true.Seating force should equate to bullet release. Consistent bullet release is the key. I’d never be able to afford such a press.
Bullet ogive inconsistency will mix in with chamfer and case length. Length is length to that axis, and any inconsistency will show on the graph. The press can basically identify "any" problem that pertains to bullet seating. Oversize or undersize bullets. Inconsistent brass thickness. Really, it can all show up on the graph.From what I've gathered so far.
Problems it will identify....
1. Varying case length
2. Varying chamfer problems
3. Inconsistent neck lube type issues
4. Inconsistent neck tension
5. Donut area problems
Please add or correct to the list of PROBLEMS it can identify
Don't disagree at all.Bullet ogive inconsistency will mix in with chamfer and case length. Length is length to that axis, and any inconsistency will show on the graph.

As has been mentioned, this is the same as what we've all done for years with inline dies. The difference is that now we don't have to worry about how we run the arbor press. That work is done for us, in as consistent of a manner as is possible. The graph will read out any variation, which will allow us to see it more precisely than we could ever feel it.
The analytical power is unprecedented. So if you want to know which method of chamfering is most consistent, now you can see it. You can experiment with everything, and directly see the results on the graph. Some things you see on the graph, you will absolutely be able to shoot the difference. Others, you will never notice, even at 1000yds. It will take quite some time for the community to understand those correlations.
I absolutely refuse to engage in that debate. Not here, or any other social venue. No matter what evidence I would produce, a hoard of zombies will be there to refute it. The more evidence I would provide, the harder they'd fight against it... so it is literally pointless. Why is it pointless? It's pointless because almost EVERYONE that would be arguing against it will never have touched the thing in their lives, and have no experience by which to even have a debate... yet there they will be regardless. I'll debate that stuff on the Gunhive forums only... where the inexperienced are immediately silenced when they are being disruptive. I know some of you are legitimate in your search for knowledge, but the number of non-invested trolls is simply too high for me to entertain that discussion. Especially considering 3/4 of the people that will call it a "waste of money" today, will be seen talking about how awesome it is when they eventually buy it later. The other 1/4 can't afford it. I've seen this all before, and too many times in the last 20 years. It all happened the same way with the AMP annealer, and I can already see the threads and posts scattered across the internet trying to trod this press down.
It's an ugly thing, and I'm distancing myself from the ugly people that perpetuate it. If you want to hear what I have to say, then you can subscribe to our youtube channel, follow us on Instagram, or register on Gunhive. I won't be drawn into a debate on the merits of this press anywhere else. This is not to say I won't provide links to that content here, but I will not engage the peanut gallery at all any longer. If people want to be combative, I'll just report them immediately and not give it a single thought or hesitation. There's a way to be polite in a disagreement, and it seems many people here have forgot themselves these days.
The obvious strengths of this press are just that, obvious. The automated nature has produced the most relaxing bullet seating op I've ever experienced. It exudes confidence. If it were powered, and didn't even have a graph, I'd still buy it for that reason alone. The rest is just added layers of utility and fun. All this is to say that I'll recommend the press to anyone that can afford it. Inline dies are great, and the automated operation of them is just outstanding.
I'll have another cool video about the press to post later today or tomorrow.
Might be the type of seater stem or even the variation in the bullets.Also, I am extremely impressed with the seating accuracy of the AMP. I am assuming it seats by the ogive. I always have to sneak up on my seating depth by backing my die out a few thou and running it through a few times adjusting the dies as I go. Probably my crappy bras prep!
