Did this video help you?

Miguel Jose: Love this video I love it is so informative

Nokia 179: Thanks for the video. So initially what was your cost on the re loader and was it easy to find primers and powder?

James Stennett: Excellent video, did you buy extra tool heads for different caliber set up?

Amiga3000: Did you notice the 2 proud primers? (First row 2nd to the right, Second row center).

T.A. Rugg: Got Rush in the background ...

joe blow: Because of you I bought one from Brian Enoes. Now just can not find any powder anywhere.....

216PapaBravo: After the machine was assembled, I measured the base and my son-in-law cut it out of 1/16" steel plate. We then measured floor to the top of the bench and cut a lenght of 1" square tubing, welded it up and painted. The machine is bolted to the plate, work bench and floor if we ever have to move it. Thanks for the question and comment.

abukamoon: Dillon makes a beautiful machine. The "no B.S." warranty is what sold me. They stand behind their products!

brian wheway: I was looking to buy a Dillon 650 press for my 357, just as a thought, will it reload slugs in shot gun cartridges or will it require a different machine ? thanks

216PapaBravo: There is a local store that I purchase most of my goods from, however, I do order some stuff on line for pricing. During the past year, I have stocked up on supplies waiting to but the press. That's why it look so full. The one thing I couldn't get enough of is the powder!

David H: Where do you buy your primers, powder, brass, etc? Do you get it all online?

216PapaBravo: I am not sure about the depth required. I have my 650 on a 1/16" sheet steel with a leg to support the unit. I had to do this for two reasons. I also had some issue with the depth and with a weaker desktop to hold the machine properly. If you notice in the video the clearance for the back of the case feeder is VERY close to the shelving I had in place. I do not think that the 15" you have will be enough. What might work for you is to get the machine assembled and trial fit on your bench. Thanks!

David H: Ah okay. I'm just about to buy a 650 in three weeks, my first press. Seems like everyone online is out of small rifle/pistol primers though, so I'm going to have to search locally and see if I can find the supplies.

216PapaBravo: for my type of recreational shooting, I do not sort other than brass and nickel. For some folks they sort brass by manufacturer for common sizing, but this gets a little persnickety to me...Have fun!

216PapaBravo: Thanks for the comment! It was fun to make.

thethirdsealpatriot: Thank you for making this video. Where did you get the support leg for the strongmount? I am looking at getting 650 but would need to do something similar. Did you weld the left to the steel plate? Thank you in advance.

KemoSabe: When ordering the xl650 what actually comes with it? Do you have to order the case feeder and all of those things separately?

The Gunsmith: Inspect your cases closely on .45ACP. There are some that use small pistol primers instead of the normal large pistol primer. They go C-R-U-N-C-H at best, and BLAM-O at worst when you try and stuff a large primer in a small hole. Fortunately, the Dillon design on the primer assy is a good one. The 50 or so primers that were left in the tube also exploded, but no real damage. All the blast went out the top, and the only damage was the primer follower was destroyed when it hit the ceiling.

216PapaBravo: Thanks! I watched a video from SoCalPreppers on the subject. He ran into the same problem on his Dillon 1050. On that press the primer just exploded in the stage and did not get to the primer tube. Since watching that video I check all of my cases and found no small primer 45ACP's in my lot.

216PapaBravo: Just been busy with work and family! Plan to get some vids out as soon as the weather gets good! Yep, kids are great, right! Totally get it when you get the chance, you will enjoy the machine and the ammo you put out! Thanks for the comment!

216PapaBravo: The answer is YES! I have it set up to do both .223 and .308. The aluminum block on the top of the machine is replaceable i believe gavintoobe from the Ultimate Reloader series has a great video showing how to replace the tool head for another caliber. Dillon makes the very best press. I choose the 650 for the ease of caliber change and auto-indexing the case. The dies run from $45 to $77 depending on the caliber and if you choose steel or carbide dies.

216PapaBravo: Shotgun requires a different press no matter which metallic press company you buy from. Good Luck!

ScrappedTreasures60: Excellent video. Thanks.

gorvgo: General reloading question, when sorting your brass, does it make a difference if you sort you caliber by manufacture? Example: 9mm, do you have to separate all of the federal from the Winchester ? Or can you reload any 9mm regardless of manufacture? Thank you in advance!

216PapaBravo: On the XL 650 you get the press set up for one caliber (less die set) for $577 all of the accessories are extra. My setup for one caliber totaled $1290 (Oct 2012 pricing)

txwingnut62: Papa, just found your channel and noticed you haven't made a vid in a while. Hope you are still going to make them. Your videography, attitude and knowledge are appreciated. I plan to buy an XL650 and am learning as much as I can. If I wasn't paying full tuition for a son that was smart enough for a scholarship, I would have one by now!

216PapaBravo: Thanks for the comment! I agree the 'no B.S.' warranty make this a great choice!

mdlanoll: Thanks, I enjoy your videos.

mdlanoll: How much free space do you need on your bench for this setup with the case feeder? I ordered a 650 but am concerned that some shelving above my bench will need to be removed. I have 26" of depth on my bench but shelving above starts at 15" from the bench's front edge. In other words, can the whole setup fit in 15"of depth?

gorvgo: Can you load .223/5.56 caliber on this machine? What's the cost of each caliber set?

216PapaBravo: It's going to be tough in today's climate. Everyone is panic buying causing short or no supplies. Check with your local stores and then check on line with the bigger supplies like Midway, Brownells and the like. I do not shop Cheaper Than Dirt, because they aren't!

David H: I'm just hoping the backorders aren't going to take ridiculously long. I also will not shop CTD, because they have been price gouging since mid December, and I think that as a large online retailer, that kind of tactic is disgusting and I will not ever buy from them again.

216PapaBravo: Also note that Dillon allows the use of common die sets made by Lee or RCBS, it just takes a little more tuning time.
