Default Dillon Order Wait Support Group Thread

Just kidding......but seriously, I am one of those in waiting at the moment. Just bought a XL 650 with all the bells and whistles, quick change kits, quick change priming systems, Casefeeder and plates, and nearly everything else for .223, .308 and .45 ACP. This does NOT include dies as I already have die sets for each. Came out to just shy of $1400

Only problem: 3-5 week wait! I need prayer and well wishes for patience.....this wait is going to be tough

I happened to order my xl650 a few days before the shooting and I got it in a few days, really fast shipping. Unfortunately now components are scarce.

Congrats on the press, Spend your waiting time searching for components. You will need it.

The one down side to a progressive, You run out of components very fast.

I have found that components arent that bad, except for one item: Small Rifle Primers! I cant find them ANYWHERE! I have one brick left, and then I have one more brick of small rifle mag primers from when I used to have a 6.5 Grendel. I might have to break into those and use em up, and back down an additional 10% on the load

I use SRM for all my .223 loads that use ball powders anyways so I don’t see that as a negative. You might find you actually like them better.

I order a ton of stuff (over $1K) on 1/4/13 for my 650. I received part of the order on Saturday (RT1200, Super Swager and trim dies). The rest was backordered (case feeder, plates, dies and other small parts). Hope they come soon. You're going to love your 650 when it comes in, I do even without the case feeder.

Yesterday ordered 650 with casefeeder, rifle plate, 9,40 and 223 dies, one quik change, conversion kits, mount, roller handle, super swage, and a bunch of other goodies, about $1900 worth. No telling when it will arrive.

Last year Giraud Trimmer found its way to my bench.

Components are plentiful,, for now.

Carbide .223 and Carbide 9mm dies. I just don't have much luck when it comes to getting my reloading stuff in a timely manner.

I'm still waiting for the Forster Co-Ax to be in stock with Brownell's/Cabela's.

After building my fourth AR, I finally decided to keep one, so I ordered everything I'll need for my 650 to load 223.

I ordered all this through Brian Enos on 1/7, but in all the madness it sounds like he's sending orders straight to Dillon.

RT1200 Trimmer
223 Trim Die
223 Steel Dies
Universal Decapping Die
223 Caliber Conversion Kit
SR Casefeed Plate
Super Swage 600

Brian never stocks dillon reloading components. He has them drop shipped from Dillon to your house. It is because of this that he has to charge your card immediately instead of waiting for shipping because he's got to put the order in to Dillon.

Yeah, I can sympathize... I ordered a Super 1050 set up for .223, with an extra toolhead, the RT1200B and the RF 1000 and am in the same boat.

Of course, as mentioned since components are a challenge to locate it makes the wait a little more tolerable.

Hope we all get our orders fulfilled soon!

Back in the late 80s primers became very scarce. Since then I never let myself run too low. After this craziness subsides, let it be a lessen. Stock up! I still have all components for loading all calibers. Yes a lot are 20 years old.

While waiting for the other stuff to show up I'll put together my bench. I just got this kit in yesterday and need to get the wood for it:

http://www.amazon.com/2x4basics-9016...ords=bench+kit

Anyone use one of these kits as the basis for their reloading bench?

I am going to go with 8 feet long and 4 feet wide for the dimensions.

Oh and back to the Dillon topic, I also have a super swager waiting to show up too. I ordered it along with the dies I mentioned in my previous post from Brian Enos.

At least you got something to keep you interested... still waiting for a delivery and have already read through the PDF manual twice cover to cover at this point.

Hoping next week brings many boxes!

I ordered a 550 from Brian, no telling when it will show. I need to get some conversion kits for a 45-70 and 308 also. I may just order them from Dillon so my credit card wont be charge until its shipped. But overall I would order from BrianEnos.com for anything. He responded to my email questions and made some good recommendations. I cant blame him for the wait, but I do plan on exercising a right they are not trying to take away in Nov.

I was at Dillon's Monday with some friends. A customer asked to buy some 9mm dies and the guy behind the counter said they were all out. They are having problems getting raw materials to make the dies. He said it was quick and easy to make the dies, but the materials were tough to get. I'm guessing its the same with the machines themselves.

The showroom had a few boxes of different reloading machines. They did have powder & primers though. They were really busy with just foot traffic. Their lines for the debit/credit cards went down due to heavy traffic when I was there.

I was home at lunch reading this very thread thinking I have a few more weeks of wait time when I heard a couple of sliding thuds on my porch.
Sure enough my 550b ordered through BrianEnos showed up. I thought it was going to take longer... I'm very pleased. Now it's time to find a bench.

For the guys that are receiving whole or partial orders, what was the order date? I'm trying to figure out how long of a wait I have ahead of me.

I'm also in need of this support group. Was going to order 650 in November but waited to see how much $ I'd have left over after the holidays. Doh!

I see a charge for about $600 on my credit card from grafs, but I'll betcha that's the case feeder and accessories... No press. Argh!
