Or, batter's up for the baseball fans.

Sold a few off and been having good checks lately, so I'm looking at the following options:

Upgrade my XDM 5.25 9mm with a magwell and basepads (cheapest option)
Getting a trust, efile a form 1 for a 12.5" SBR AR, will purchase the upper from BCM and will buy a Hipertouch trigger, adj gas block, and low mass buffer/bcg/action spring to replace the milspec parts currently in my optics AR (2 birds, 1 stone)
Going blue with a Dillon 650 (unlimited ammo forever)
None of the above, save the money

I like optons 2 and 3. As far as Blue goes, I really like the 550 (manual indexing)

And I'm hung up on deciding between the 550 and 650. I'll probably call an individual I know of and talk to him. But, since I don't have the available space for one, I really don't know...

That's my thinking, I sold another pistol so I went ahead and ordered #1 and am working on setting up #2. Also ordered a RRA NM 2 stage trigger since I saw them on sale for $89 plus 7.5% off the order.

# 2 Getting into reloading is a whole other hobby. But I have a couple 650's and they are great running machines.

I already have a single stage Rock Chucker. It'd be a lot easier to shoot more if loaded faster. I'll wait a while for it.

You could also go with the Lee cast turret press. Its much faster then single stage and is a pretty cheap production increase. I have one sitting next to the Dillon 650's its great for low volume production and a step up in speed from a single stage.

Caliber changes are quick and extra turrets are cheap and the primer thing that hangs off the top of the press actually works well. Someone even sells an case eject for the LCT. I dont like is lee powder measures so I took an extra Dillon measure and made an adapter/riser to use that on the LCT - it works great and is accurate.
