Have sent you pm [MENTION=695]stug[/MENTION] reg shoot on Mon
Did I hear someone mention a Dillon 650? I bought myself one today ,can't wait get it delivered and up n running
Don't forget to stock up on things to feed it. Bill has primers at a good price at the moment.
Ill be off to see Bill sometime this week to top up on components .... then im planning on making it rain 9mm MUahaHAHaa
I have bulk 9mm brass you can have and if you give me your recipe and some components I would be happy to load you up a big batch for helping me out with my ammo situation for next month. I will drop that in next week by the way if that's still cool?
Loading 9mm on a single will put you off loading anything else for lifemg:
Are the winny primers any good? Have heard stories but never used them myself. Awesome price tho as you say.
This will make the ammo last a bit longer.

Fires a short laser burst when you pull the trigger. I downloaded an app called iTarget that uses the phone camera to record where the shots are going, could also video it. Should help a lot with dry fire practice.
Interesting. How much and from where? and is it any good?
(My google'fuu is not with me today.......)
I got it off trademe, it had been there for months, then they halved the price last week so I bought it.
Here is a review
this is the iTarget system, although I only have the app, not their laser ammo
What's your load?
I use Winchester primers for pistol because they were $40/1000, they work fine
win sp primer, 4.0gr Hodgdon titegroup, Ruse 124gr flatpoint, load length 27.5mm
Nice, titegroup is good powder. Don't know why Hodgdon has such little use in our club, but a distributor told me that he sees powder use in pistol shooting really region based. Like everyone uses what some one else is using, I was using ap50 but with supply issues changed to much cheaper Belmont WAP.
My shadow used to barely make minor, but damn it was nice and soft to shoot
I've used them in my STI and M&P without any issues, all 5k I got last time went pop like they should.
Federal cases don't like Win primers, way too tight a fit.
Cheers. I have still got around 4k of a bulk CCI order. I will try some Winchester when I get a chance.
Federal cases don't like any kind of primers in my experience, the primer pocket is crimped. I'm lazy so I tend to just chuck them in the scrap pile when I find some.
I had found the same, and am considering a Dillon 600 to solve it. Anyone used a 600 before?
I haven't used one but they look pretty good on various reviews online. The thing is though, can you really justify the expense for 9mm brass?
Sample size of 2 but here it is-
I bought a Dillon Square B to have as a dedicated 9mm and it was an absolute arse to use - it kept stuffing up the primer feed system and just would not come right
Serious Shooters were good about returning it and have swapped for a 550 now
I have no experience of 650s but they always look farkin cool..
After returning the Square B I mentioned it to a club member and he had the exact same issue with his Dillon square B and returned it for the same reason
A guy I know and respect the opinion of has a 550 and swaps out the different setups for different calibres complete with powder feeder, etc so it is setup the calibre once and away ya go - think I will head down this route too for commonly used calibres ie 9mm,45,223 and use my single stage for loading hunting ammo
I'm not wedded to any particular brand but I wouldn't touch a square B again
First 50 loads are gone, averaged 1080fps for power factor 133.

Practiced draw and fire one round double action. Need a bit of practice, was hitting to the left.
I then grabbed 50 club loads and shot them on the 25m ISSF range, probably my best 9mm target!
