  1. I've had one 650 for more than twenty years and have never had the primers ignite when I was using it. My son did once more than fifteen years ago, but he's a big kid and tended to operate the machine like a bull in a China shop. Dillon promptly replaced the damaged parts for free, the strong outer metal tube on the primer feed prevents any injury. The black plastic follower rod dinged the ceiling in the garage a bit and looked like a pig's tail afterwards. I recently bought a second 650 from a friend's estate and will run small primers on one and large on the other. I suspect changing primer size on the 750 may be easier than on the 650, but don't know for sure. My older machine is getting a little tired and will be going back to Dillon for a refurb over the winter. I would guestimate 200-300k rounds have been loaded on the older machine.
  2. Woody, We're driving up the morning of the match. What time will we need to be there for the BAMM match? BD
  3. Do you still have the 1100 trap gun? If so, if you could bring it to the WB match, I'd like to take a look at it.



  4. I think all Ruger single action factory grips were made by Lett back then. Do these have the Ruger medallion? Are you sure that they are the short grips and what are you asking?

  5. Wolfgang,

    Who made your percussion Sharps? Just curious in case Okiepan doesn't take it.

    Still have your cabin in Ohio?

      Still have cabin in Ohio.  Sharps replica made by Pedersoli.     Okiepan doesn't want it. He wants a military carbine style.

      Hi Pard, . .  it is made by Pederosoli.  was not bought as being new.  But is perfect in and out.   Can send photos. Will include shipping and the bullets and paper for cartridges.   Have also the really strong percussion caps but am not sure about sending those. Looks to me like a real fun gun.  But have been and still am too busy to ever get around to shooting it.  Checkered wood, deep browned finish ( not bright blue), 32 in barrel, long range tang sight.

      Thanks for the response. I'll research the Pedersoli but seriously doubt I would be interested. What I really want is a Shiloh.


  6. tell you what - I have a roller handle on one of my 550’s and have been wanting to find a std one with a ball end. Send me yours and I will send you mine and everything will dandy!  How’s that sound?

      Let me get back to you on that. I don't know where the original handle is from my older press and I haven't mounted and tried out the new one. I may decide I like the ball end handle.

  7. I cast my own, no lubing or sizing needed. Just be sure you use pure lead.
  8. Most Marlin shooters find that the 250gr bullet reduces blow-back in the .45 Colt Marlin when compared to the 200gr. Kind of a comfort thing.
  9. Charlie is a good guy-here's hoping for a complete and speedy recovery.
  10. I have to admit that I always thought that engine turning looked like something more appropriate for the dash of a '63 Impala SS, not an old west revolver.
  11. Kudos to Kaya, but we also need to appreciate a school and school district that will recognize a student for participating in a shooting sport. Once when my son was young he wore a Big Irons t-shirt to school with a small crossed pistol logo of the Big Irons club. The school staff made him take it off and put it back on inside out and also made him wear a flannel shirt they pulled from the lost and found over the t-shirt so no one could make out the pistols through the t-shirt. I think he was in elementary or middle school at the time. With all the anti-gun hysteria in our schools it's good to hear a story like this one.
