    Going Blue

    LGS had a Dillon 550C set-up with several accessories at a price I couldn't resist. Pre-owned but never used from an estate...poor fellow died before he got to use it.

    Nice. Report to us how you like it after you load a few hundred rounds on it.
    I've been tempted to get a Dillon but I don't know all the differences in the various models.

    If I get a chance to look them over in person sometime I still might get a setup.

    Nice. I think you will like it. I've had a 550B over twenty years with literally thousands of rounds loaded. If I could make one suggestion ... order the Dillon Roller Handle for it. Makes a world of difference.

    Thanks, Jerry. I added Inline Fabrication's ERGO Roller Lever to my order for the Quick Change top plate. I plan on selling the Strong Mount since I've configured my bench and storage for the QC system.

    I spent a few hours with it today making sure I understood how everything works and loading up 40 rounds of Hornady 147gr FMJ-RN 9mm in a few different charge weights. Will try to run out to the range at dawn and verify the loads in a handgun and PCC before attempting any real volume. This is my first time loading for pistol.

    I like the flexibility of the press and how easy it is to deal with problems (mistakes). I think the 550 will work well for my needs.

    Yep there a good one, I’m not in that area much at all, but few times I’ve ventured in, the inventory and price is better then a lot.
