bwspyder1: Great video ! Did the press come with the case feed tube or did you have to
buy the case feeder?
Miguel Jose: With this video I know what type of press I'm going to buy because is so
freddiemercurious: Fine job, Paul. I have an XL650 on the way. It should be in my "mailbox"
in two days or thereabouts. I'm VERY excited. Like you recommend, I've
been using a Rock Chucker for about 5 years; although I had the Hornady
Pro-Jector (remember the one that preceded the LnL?) for more than 10
I really came here to see some specifics about how the primer indexing
system works on the 650, but I'm sure I'll have no problem finding it
Just wanted to comment and say that your video was well executed, and
informative. Thank you!
FrozenguyRS: I started with the XL 650 because you can use it as a single stage until
you're ready for progressive. However great video! Really enjoyed it.
Jhovanny Oliveros: Best detailed video sir, keep them coming.
bartofilms: Hi Paul, You may want to wear latex gloves when handling brass that's
coated w. case lube. I don't know about Dillon's, but several other case
lube compounds have benzine in them. If you have carbide dies, you prob.
don't need the case lube anyway. Cheers.
getsomeanthrax: great vid,way to go!
Tommy Rad: BTW, you don't have to spray the lube hot. Room temp is fine. Spray a
couple sprays on your brass, mix them around [I prefer a plastic bowl] wait
1 to 2 minutes, start loading.
MrThumbwii: how do you adjust the depth the primer is pushed in?
Okinawapajero: HA HA! Yeah I meant powder sorry! I'm recovering from surgery and was on
pain killers when I typed that, lol! Great video though and I will take
your advice on the RCBS first when I get back to the United States
(Stationed overseas with the USMC). With the current ammo shortages have
you seen there being a shortage or reloading supplies as well; EG Primer,
Powder, casing, bullets? It seems like a no-brainier when there are ammo
shortages. Thanks again brother!
DickJones007: ( Oops, posted that a little prematurely)... but I've reload close to 2000
to 3000 rounds, and am ready to advance to a progressive press such as the
Dillon 650. My main question in regards to the press, is the priming
station. Is there ever a concern abusing much pressure in the handle and
accidentally discharging a primer?
Poquito M. Libugui: On sorting cases of 9mm.To count and sort them (9mm) I use the plastic (50
pc containers) trays that comes along when you buy factory loads. 1st, I
fill the cases upside in the tray and inspect them visually if there are
other calibers like the .32 ACP/7.65mm or .380/9mm short. mixed. Then, pass
a powerful magnet(taken from a big busted speaker) to sort out the steel
casings which I don't reload. Then tally each tray so I don't lose count.
On 38 Special and .357magnum, check only for visual.
SquidwardLWRC: Great intro video. Have been looking to get one of these. Knowledge is
power. Thanks for sharing.
clintmilt1: Thanks so much for your overview. It was informative. I am in the market
for this 650 press. Where is the best plce to buy? New or used. I will be
reloading 223, 308, 45, 38, and 5.7
philip Anninos: Very good presentation but you left out the flaring part when the powder
charges and you left out the crimping step.. thank you for posting this.
Jim Kohn: Liked the presentation. Newer shooter (2yrs). Looking at the 650 as a first
time loading machine. I have family that loads and will help me set things
up. I really liked the full auto reloaded 1050 but don't think I really
need all that right now.
PaulsWackyWorld: Non-Technical explanation: It's like choosing between 2 hot girls with big
B(. )( .)Bs,,,, but one is deaf and the other is blind. It's a hard
decision and only you can make it,,, they will both work. Will it work LONG
TERM ? Resale value if you decide to stop reloading? I would personally
rather have the 650 with no case feeder than the 550 with. Blind , Deaf,
Blind , Deaf, Blind , Deaf, (. )( .) ???
PaulsWackyWorld: @Nelmistro It just cost me < $21 per hundred to reload with high end
components in 223. A box of just OK 30-06 cost over $20 for 20 rounds. I
just reloaded with Sierra MatchKings and I was under 40 cents a round or $8
for a box of 20
PaulsWackyWorld: It's the same as any other press. I did have 1 primer go off but that was
many years ago . Always wear safety glasses !
PaulsWackyWorld: Yes , if it's brass . White box Winchester bulk pack from walmart is a yes.
PaulsWackyWorld: As you know from other activities that you do, you have to give your arm a
PaulsWackyWorld: Do what you want but don't give others bad information
chechnya: I like this video a lot. Very informative.
PaulsWackyWorld: @clintmilt1 The price is the same anywhere you buy a Dillon or you can buy
it from Dillon or you can buy it used and save the tax. Used presses sell
for about as much as new ones because Dillion's have a no BS warrenty so
you can keep it forever and it's always in warrenty with no receipt. SWEET
or what !
PaulsWackyWorld: Funny ,,, it's not shown in my manual ???? I think it goes there ??? It's
always been there ? Looks like it's made to go there ??
PaulsWackyWorld: As I said in the video- Start with a RCBS Rockchucker. Maybe get the RCBS
master reloading kit. Learn on that. If you feel the need then go to the
Dillon 650. The 650 IS NOT A GOOD PLACE TO START !
Tommy Rad: Excellent advice at the end. Good video! Thanks.
PaulsWackyWorld: @bartofilms GOOD POINT ! I just rechecked and the Dillon Case Lube
conatains lanolin and isopropyl alcohol so it should be OK. I know I don't
need the lube and it works fine without it but with the lube it runs like
silk ! For 50 rounds may not be worth it , when I am doing 500+ rounds it
just makes it so easy and smooth.
Tommy Rad: Dillon Case Lube is a lanolin & alcohol mixture. You can make it yourself
at a fraction of the cost. 1 ounce of liquid lanolin. 12 ounces of 99% ISO
Alcohol Place both plastic containers [liquid lanolin & ISO alc] in a bowl
of hot water for 20 min. This will facilitate the lanolin to become
pourable & mix easily into the warm ISO. Mix well, pour into a good
Lightspit: Man, you could be a professor. Nice, good and very instructional video.
Adriano Marques: Good morning Paul Thanks for your attention. I have other question about
powder the Winchester is a good choise for reloading? and what type i can
use 231, auto comp regards Adriano
DSMattitude: That thing is handier than a pocket on a shirt!
GuitarGear1: Paul- excellent and thorough video, thank you for taking the time to put
this together for us. I've been loading on a Square Deal for the last few
months and have been considering bumping up to the 550 or 650. I like the
auto indexing of the 650, but, am not sure just how vital that is to me and
I'm wondering if you have any insights that may help me make a decision one
way or the other between them. Thanks again and happy shooting :)
PaulsWackyWorld: I don't think my press is bouncing all over the place,, And my loads are
constistant. Set up a camera on your press and zoom in and see if your
bench is more stable than mine? A little movement is OK.
PaulsWackyWorld: If you have a Square Deal now,,, MMMMmmmm . Look at the price differance
between the 550 and 650. I would just go the extra money for the 650. The
650 is forever. Due to the no BS warrenty I let all my friends come over
and reload. After I set it up and due mine they can come for an hour or so
and do theirs,,, advantage goes to the 650 ????
JAWSnAZ: Thanks for the great video. Perfect introduction for someone that has never
seen one run.
Thomas Rudolph: Great video. One thing though. You can save yourself time. Don't waist your
spray lube on straight walled pistol cases. You don't need to lube them.
PaulsWackyWorld: True, you don't need the spray lube but, 1000 rounds later my arm feels a
lot better. To me it just makes everything easy,,, thats what we want,,,
cheap and easy. Thanks for the comments.
Ratspitful: I like your show just one thing can you reload ammo purchased at say Wal
Mart or Academy?
GuitarGear1: (I'm probably buying the 650 no matter what, hah, I just want to tell
myself I made an informed decision before splurging) :)
PaulsWackyWorld: In 30-06 I shoot the Sierra Match Kings and Game Kings, about $35/100 (High
end bullet) + $3.50 for primers+ lets say $10 of powder. There are a lot of
cheaper bullets. On 223 they run about <$100/1000 or about $10/100 + $3.50
for primers and about $5 worth of powder. 223 are almost like free to reload
DickJones007: I've got to Lee Deluxe four station press,
Grimm Day: Thanks so much Paul, have been loading with my single stage RCBS for quite
some years now and have been eyeing these Dillon XL650's for my 45 acp's
and my 10mm auto's
SickAudi: I wouldn't start with a single stage. I would actually consider starting
with the dillon 650 absolutely. If I take my time and learn and absolutely
follow all the instructions and follow all protocols I and everyone else
will not have a issue starting with the 650.. FYI
MrGDIRTY5: Damn I want one of these
TDCtactical: Paul, for lubing you might try a method that works great for me. Take a
tupperware container size of your choosing, and put your cases in, spray
then put the lid on and shake. Repeat as nessicary. Works great, fasr, and
contains the brass cleanly for use now or later.
Jack McPherson: Good vid
Adriano Marques: Dear Paul Congratulations about your vídeo!! Please, a have question for
you: in your oppinion, what reloadind machine is better? Regards Adriano
Marques São Paulo - Brazil
italianrelic: Really what is the point of a 650 with no casefeeder? It is exactly like
buying a car with no tires!
