    Just ordered a batch and picked up some Power Pistol for my brother who changed his mind 4 pounds never opened, asking $83 which is what I just paid Will trade for 9mm factory ammo/ brass, 22LR, or reloading equipment as well. Face to face only, northern Westchester / Putnam area nights /...
  2. Ammunition and Reloading
    I was resizing .223 cases last night on my RCBS RS single stage press and the spent primers were falling all over the place. I suppose I could have rigged something up to catch them, but I decided to look on eBay. There were trays being offered from $20+ to $35 +shipping, but not clearly...
  3. Ammunition and Reloading
    Alright guys so it's time to get into reloading. I've done a good deal of research and I want to start off with a progressive. I don't want to get into it and need to upgrade right away I'd rather start off slower on the same machine and eventually pick my pace up. So I want to go with either a...
  4. Ammunition and Reloading
    Sorry if this has been covered before... So can someone take me through the process for reloading 223 on a Dillon 1050 with a Dillon electric case trimmer? I'm assuming: 1. Clean brass 2. Run clean brass through deprime, swage, resize and trim 3. Clean again 4. Reprime, powder, bullet...

    I'm getting tired of trying to adjust the powder feed as it is. So I was wondering if anyone is using a MrDial powder measure adjustment dial, and if so, what you think of it? MRDial the Powder Measure Adjustment Dial, Reloading Supplies and Enhancements TIA
  6. Ammunition and Reloading
    So I bought a press and electric case trimmer. Does anybody know the process? I'm assuming run the brass through the tumbler, resize and trim, run it through the tumbler again and load. I can use the press to resize and trim but would have to reset everything to load or buy another tool head...
  7. Ammunition and Reloading
    Are you happy with it? I will be loading for several calibers but my favorites are 9mm luger, 45acp, 220 Swift & 223Rem. I'm interested in hearing the good and bad. I have a single stage press now and not as much time to myself so speeding up the reloading process is a big plus. How expensive is...

    Still no press... IMG_20130529_221236_386 by cgrutt, on Flickr They also delivered a vibratory case prep machine. Got to clean some brass while I wait, lol...
  9. Ammunition and Reloading
    I found a fast way to de-prime and resize my .223 brass on my Dillon 550B by running it backwards. I took a blank tool head, installed my resizing die in the normal #1 location. Without the numbered "button" installed in the #2 powder charging station I was able to use my left hand to slip the...

    Nothing exciting. A media tumbler, some Walnut media and a 1/2 case of case lube and 1/2 case of brass polish. Hey it's better than nothing, ha, ha.... More to follow...

  12. Ammunition and Reloading
    From time to time I've seen threads on various forums complaining about the primer slide return spring on Dillon 550's. The factory spring works when everything is perfect, but doesn't return quickly enough on the upstroke when things are a little dirty, worn, or less than perfect. Replacing the...
  13. Wanted
    If anyone has either one that they aren't using I'm in the market.

    anybody own one, pro's and con', like dislike
  15. Ammunition and Reloading
    Open discussion on the dillon square deal B and other comparable loaders. Upside is that it comes ready to load and I also like its auto indexing feature. Downside is that it can't do rifle rounds. I was thinking to get a single stage for rifle loading anyway. Thoughts?
  16. Off-Topic
    Received Dillon 's Feb blue press catalog in mail the other day with a knockout Blonde in heels and an ar rifle in hand on cover. Left it on kitchen counter and wife was not amused. Oops

    Dillon auot reloader I think this is the same one http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dillon-Precision-RL550B-Progressive-Reloading-Machine-4-Stage-Manual-Index-14261-/130803445183?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e747e2dbf
  18. Ammunition and Reloading
    I have had a dillon 550b with case feeder for several year and have had great success. I am thinking of replacing it with the xl650 since I have started loading .223 for my AR and case feeder on 550b doesn't handle rifle ammo Has anyone gone from the 550b to the xl650? Do I sell the 550b...
  19. Ammunition and Reloading
    While changing calibers on the 650 I noticed a nut on the case feeder was loose so I tightened it up....Cranked it down to much and shattered the plexiglass. Called Dillon on the 800 number and told them what I had done... As always the customer service was outstanding and they indicated they...
  20. Ammunition and Reloading
    Anybody have experience with these three presses? I'm sure nobody has owned all three lol I think all three companies have outstanding company service and stand behind their products so better service is not a concern. Main things I'm looking for is: 1. Ease of changing calibers 2. Accuracy...
