    Exactly....we are trained to fire a minimum of two shots....and to keep firing until the threat is neutralized.

    Watch some YouTube videos and check them all out. The Dillon 750 really needs the case Feeder to gain much over the 550...so consider that. I have owned them all and sold the 650 (some say better than the 750). I have a 550 and 1050. I would...

    100 rounds a day spread across 6 calibers a start. I am going to assume about 100 days of shooting a year so you reload 10,000 rounds/year. With a SS press that will take about 300 hours. My advice is to keep the .243, .30/09 and 8mm rifle...

    Over the years, I have rationalized why I carry a certain caliber and bullet. It may "wrong" but the only consistent measure of effectiveness I use is "jello" performance. "Jello" is not affected by adrenaline or drugs or attitude...it just "is"...

    I cannot forgive many sins just because I sin too, or because some passages in the Bible proclaim we should do so. In part it comes from not being able to accept all sins are equal. For example, I can forgive a person for a "white" lie, but...

    I see folks finding "projects" to justify 3D printers when something simple like rfd came up with works and costs less than a $1. Paint the wood dowel black and it will look like plastic. Of course if you have to buy black paint the price...

    Looks like we will not get a report from the OP. Wonder if he gave up, or got so much stuff he is busy sorting and smelting it? LOL

    You must be more specific or all you get is “this is what I use” What calibers and how many rounds/hr of each do you want to produce.

    I have owned and used all the Dillon machines and find them easy to use with minimal tweaking. Nothing like Lee progressives which I would class as marginal or worse. Without meaning to be offensive, why would your brother invest in a Mr...

    Your learned opinions please... I am looking at adding a Mr. Bullet Feeder to a Dillon 1050 and possibly a Star sizer. If you only needed one unit, would you invest in a 3D set up to make it, or buy the commercial unit? I can get the feeder...

    Any process that uses water is a pain. I am not carrying pails of water into the shop and then you have to dry the cases. Might work OK for a few less than 200 cases at a time. Ultra clean cases do not perform any better so not worth the...

    Glad you did not get hurt but it sucks to see that bolt handle broken off. It will be informative if you can determine what happened. One of my bugga-boos when I reload is wondering if a powder measure bridges and dumps an overcharge. On...

    Yep...I have three. Sold one many years ago and regret it....just had no use for a .44 Mag lever action. They are a great gun but find it hard to justify the current prices.
