West Coast Ammo in Temecula is very fair.

Or road trip to PHX and buy direct.

Brian doesn't sell Dillon products anymore. He stopped a few months ago.

Thanks for this. Brian Enos was the man when it came to Dillon sales (as far as I was concerned). I was sorry to see that he was no longer going to be a Dillon dealer. Now I'll give KrakenPop a try.

I just bought my 1050 from eBay, seller called Pioletti Defense. I was thinking about seeing what they charge for a 650. Even on eBay the 650 is $590 with free shipping and no tax, then another $220 for the casefeeder. I don't think the press includes dies for that price.

.223 carbide die setup 1050, casefeed, powder check, low powder sensor, bullet tray, tools and bracket, $1850 shipped.

Here is an interesting deal:

http://www.renegadeammo.com/black-friday

Basically, you are buying two tickets, one for the press ($35) and one for the accessories ($10). The tickets give you "their" cost on the press and a discount on the accessories.

I tallied it up with a 650XL, Case Feeder, Strong Mount, Bullet Tray and Roller Handle and their price (including the shipping quote I received from them) was only $35 less than buying from Dillon direct.

Not sure if $35 savings is worth it in my opinion, but maybe I did my math wrong...?

Also, the krakenpop weekend warrior appears to be $6.00 more than ordering direct from Dillon (at least with shipping to my zip code in San Diego)...?

I ordered direct from Dillon - a 650 with many accessories and Dillon shipped it in within 24 hours - shipping was only $24 and it came in two boxes - no sales tax either.

I used the Swage It for a few thousand rounds. I don't like it. Didn't work very well.

I own both. When processing 223 on my Dillon 650 with the 1200b trimmer, the Swage It, and the right dies, it really cuts down on my brass prep time.

Every now and then a piece of brass feels like it's taking more pressure than it should for the Swage It, and on those occasions, I just remove it and hit with the Dillon Super Swage. Call me paranoid, but my rule of thumb is if it feels like its taking significantly more pressure than seating a primer, don't push and possibly break or bend anything on your press.

The Dillon Super Swage is a more robust product, but adds a significant amount of time to brass prep.

To answer your question though, I would only have gotten the Swage It if I had to do it over again. But the only military crimped brass I'm reloading is 5.56. I don't know how much pressure is needed to remove the crimp on 7.62.

I got rid of the ga customs swagger, not the swage it but the early one with the spring. Still constantly had primer issues. I started setting up my rcbs swagger on my rockchucker and if a primer didn't go in I'd pull it out of the 650, swage it, and put it back in place and keep going. Now I bought a 1050 to make it easier. I still haven't bought a super swage 600 but have always considered it for .308 and .30-06 but may just get 1050 conversions.

My 1050 cost me right about $1550 shipped. I bought one in .223 carbide with all the bells and whistles for $1850 shipped. Sold the dies I didn't need, powder check I won't use, casefeed plate I already had ect. I love my xl650 but the 1050 is a much better press. I'd load everything on it but the cost of conversions and toolheads would kill me.

LArry
Welcome, Larry. Do you have packages/lists of everything someone would need to buy for certain applications? For example, if someone had a Dillon XL650 with everything needed for pistol caliber loading, what exactly would they need to buy to start reloading rifle calibers on the same press? Brian Enos's "packages" and equipment recommendations were very helpful to me when I ordered my first Dillon.
