Nice! I just got a cheap a$$ Lee press for free when I ordered their reloading manual. Not nearly as nice as a Dillon, but hey, it's free (kinda).

I got it set up last night and cranked out a few rounds this morning. Very nice! It will take a little getting used to the priming on the upstroke though.

I use my Rock Chucker for match ammo and my "BIG" RCBS press for my .50 (I don't recall the name). This Dillon will be used for large amounts of .45 auto, 9mm subsonic, and .223/.308 blasting ammo.


Life is good.

I just got a MEC 20 gauge loader (VersaMec) for free. It loads like a champ and has the original bar and an adjustible bar. Friend got a new loader plus does not load for 20 anymore.

Better hold on to your wallet, even though you only paid $300 which is "steal," buying the caliber conversion kits is going set you back some serious bucks. Getting used to an up-stroke priming is no big deal. That is what you got that "great big mass of excess ugly looking fat" sitting in between your shoulders for. It should take you a very short time to get to it. ENJOY

A friend recently gave me a complete RCBS reloading set-up with .223/.308/.45 dies and 50 pounds of once fired .223 and .45 brass. I need 9mm, 7.5x55 and .380 dies and I'll be set.

Congrats on the Dillon deal steal.

Yeah, I have been checking Ebay and other sources for conversions. My local gun dealer (where I worked for a few years) gives me slightly over cost pricing, so that will help. The fact that most of his business is in remanufacturing ammo also helps with the components!!!
