All I pointed out is that your "test" was flawed because you did something to the meter. I bought the same meter you have in the video so I could see what you saw and found out what it was immediately. You had it set to "MAX" hold and either hit the pistophone or something else that spiked the level and held it at 98. As you can see in my quick vid, the sound wasn't even close to the level you posted. When I set it on MAX, it still doesn't even come close to that level and as you can see in operation at the speed you said you were running in test. I have a better system that will record and graph sound over time that I will set at various locations, film and provide for all to criticize. I am willing to loan you the same system with all the points of measurement so you can do the same on your current upgraded pro model. Like I have in the video description, I would like to engage with you on this comparison in an apples to apples comparison with objective test points.
BTW, thanks for the video, it has sold a bunch of systems for me this month.
I don’t know exactly why the sound readings ended up like they did. I actually ran that “test” a couple of time before filming it so I could see how it was reading and so what ended up recorded wouldn’t be an anomaly. Still, there are lots of reasons my ammobot might be louder than any other though I figure it is typical unless specs have changed; I can’t speak for all of them. And it is a good point the video showed only the peak value.
But these things I do know:
The ammobot I have is substantially louder than the mark 7. This is easily detected by normal hearing.
The motors used in the ammobot are known in the CNC world to be louder than the type used by mark 7, supporting my observation.
The noise level of the ammobot did not stop me from using it to load a LOT of ammo. It’s nowhere near as demoralizing as say a hornady casefeeder when it comes to working with it soundwise.
However, it is amazing to me that video was interpreted as some attempt to rig results against ammobot, rather than being the opinion, backed by observation, of someone who had actually bought both machines. If it sold systems for you then great! It's one data point people can use to compare the best reloaders on the market. Also, people go cheap when they can.
I do feel guilty in one respect from the video. I didn't give Mark 7 a fair shake. Their top of the line machine is absolutely awesome. It's certainly considerably more money than the ammobot or LTE, but it outperforms both with ease. The digital clutch, for just one example, protects the machine and operator to a much greater degree than other products. Obviously product marketers who don't have this feature to offer dismiss the value, but to a user it is easy to see. Some people don't need it or want to pay for it, of course, but it is still superior to the less intelligent machines.
