    I refuse to believe that all powder measures are equal after my experience with my lee measure. (Which i bought after reading all the stories of guys forsaking their more expensive measures in favor of this plastic piece of junk.) All cars perform...

    Im still fairly new to this but i've done it off and on for a few years and if you had alloy still sticking to the clips then to me it sounds like your alloy simply wasnt up to tempature yet. Once it hits tempature, it doesnt stick to anything.

    Can you elaborate on the reasons why? I originally wanted the 650, but decided on the 550 for two reasons. I load a lot of calibers, and 2, I see a lot of complaints from auto indexing presses throwing powder out of the case on index.

    Hi guys, i've been doing a lot of research on presses. Looking at the dillon 650, the Lock N Load, and the dillon 550. I think i've settled on the 550 for various reasons. The only hangup I have is pretty much everyone says the dillion powder...

    The last few batches of wheel weights i've processed, I stopped fluxing. I just stir the lead and pull out the dirt that comes up. When using my bottom pour pot I can say i've noticed no difference in castings of bullet accuracy ect. Anyone else...
