Yeah I have a swage-it for a 650 but never put it on. I saw some messed up shell plates from using it on a 650 on another site and decided against it. New 4 inch strong mount arrived with quick attach system from inline and I cruised through em with my 600 super swage. Doing around 70 every 5 minutes or so.

I used to use an RCBS swage die on a single stage Lee press but that takes forever.

I picked up a used Dillon super swage today and it's so much faster that the RCBS! I can finally get through the rest of my 5.56 brass using this and the Tri-way trimmer.

Oh, loaded a hundred rounds of 5.56 before dinner. Spilled about 40 grains of CFE223 all over the press by not paying attention. Progressive presses are fast but it's so easy to get out of rhythm.

An estimated 4375 rounds can be loaded with the 1LB of IMR 800x powder she is using.

(Now where the hell can I get a primer catch for this RCBS partner press? Scouring them Innerutz right now, as I have some vacuuming to do...)


Nice work on the 25 ACP. Here is a primer catcher for your RCBS press. I have a similar one for my Rock Chucker and it works great.

I loaded and then tested 50 rounds of 357.
A stiff charge of H110 under a 150 grain cast semi-wadcutter.

It worked great!!!! And no leading.

Take care

Finished resizing last 1500 pieces of 223. Now it's on to trimming those. Finish swaging about 700 and then trim those and all my 223/556 brass will be ready to load.

Have you shot this hand load before.

If so, what is the velocity of this round, and if it's in a semi auto does it cycle.

No, I have not tried these out. Been doing some research for the plated stuff. There is a thread on here with Calguns of some dude testing them out. I wish I had a chrono. I'm going to be testing them out with AR and Saiga.

That same bullet profile will not feed from a magazine in my 7.62x39 AR upper. It ends up smashing the bullet and getting bullet setback. Good for single feeding thru the ejection port. I am going to do some casting of 180 to 200 grain for this. If you have not tried CFE BLK powder, put it on your list. My favorite powder for 7.62x39 round.

Loaded up ~200 9mm, 115gr projectiles with 5gr of Ramshot Silhouette.

Pressed some 5.56 shorter than they were loaded for my chamber, as her Wylde barrel was holding the projectiles during a chamber cycle-plunk test, as I have always loaded for my 5.56 chamber as long a they would fit int he mag...

Must be honest here. Went and started to set up loading for .45acp and .30-30. Said the hell with it and went and watched more "March Madness". My favorite sporting event.

I finally got around to UNloading those .40s that i made up without primers. Dang press is always finding new ways to screw with me. After a primer tube refill, no other changes, it stopped picking up primers, so i made....about 70 before i realized it. I was anojt 400 rounds into a session, nothing adjusted, and i got complacent. Now i watch the primer ram in both directions.

So i got to try out a collet puller, it works great, but unloading is nowhere near as satisfying as loading.

So i loadeed thise back up and another 100 juat to make sure everything is working smoothly.

200 rounds of 357 magnum. 16.0 grains of H110 with CCI sp magnitude m primers.
Found out that when switching setups you can go about 6-8 cycles with small primers in the large primer tube before it jams. IF you ignore the upside down primer on the first round as a mistake when picking up the primers. D'oh!

But the. You need to disassemble things carefully to keep the other 92 or so primers from flying everywhere.

This thread needs more pics.
Loaded 80 rounds of 30-06. The 168gr bullets were blemishes from Midway a few years ago. Look like Hornady A-Max.

Bought a paint marker set (Silver and gold Sharpies to be exact) so I could label RIFLE and PISTOL sides on the XL 650 case insert slide cam, as I keep getting it backwards after cleaning/lube(, especially if I haven't reloaded in a while).

Loaded about 225 more 9mm 115gr with 5.0gr of Silhouette.

Set back the projectiles on some long 5.56 cartridges, as her throat is shorter than my AR's before the rifling.
