  1. OLG I had been trying some silicone and while it did help a little it did not solve the problem. The simple spring from a pen did the trick. NCD
  2. I have a Mr. Bullet Feeder on my Dillon 750 and it was giving me problems. The hopper that turns the bullet point up was working fine but the die that sets the bullet on the case had problems. Not every time but more often than I would like the seating die would not come all the way back down after it fed a bullet onto a case. Sometimes it would feed 2 bullets one on top of each other, but more problematic was when it would wait until the shell plate rotated and then drop the second bullet on top of a case filled with powder. This would make some of the powder spill out of the case. It would have to be removed and set aside until I could get the primer out or put it back into station 2. I was talking to a friend of mine that had the same problem and his solution was to take a spring out of a ballpoint pen and connect it between the seating die C clip on the MBF at station 3 and the C clip on the Dillon seating die at station 4. With a little adjustment this fix worked great. The little extra pull from the spring keeps the MBF die from staying up and dropping the second bullet. Isn’t it always the simplest solutions that make the biggest difference? Here is a picture of the spring in place.
  3. I use Promo most of the time. What is the weight of the load of Red Dot that you use for this load?
  4. SOLD Up for sale is a Dillon XL650 metallic cartridge reloader. It was factory refurbished 2 years ago and has been my backup press so it has hardly been used. Comes with 5 position tool head, complete Dillon powder measurer and an aftermarket auto case feeder with a large and small disk. It is set up for small primers with the parts to convert to large primers, but no pickup tubes. $550 + shipping. Local pick up in Western NY.
  5. I'll take the middle one with 47" to center hole. Can you take paypal?
  6. I have limited space on my bench so I mount my presses on a piece of plywood and then install and remove them according to which press I want to use. When not in use I put them on a shelf I have in the loading room and this leaves a clear bench for other projects. I mounted a T nut to my bench and use a thumb screw when I have a press on the bench. Here is a press on the bench with the thumb screw holding it down. Here is what the thumb screw looks like in the bench. Note that when I don’t have a press on the bench the thumb screw if off in the tool rack. Here is the rack I use to store some of my presses. And this is what my bench looks like without any of my presses mounted on it. I hope this helps you. NCD
  7. The Rio's will work fine but they are slightly larger than the Federal so once you have used them in a hull the primer pocket my be too large for the Federals. The Federals may fall out.
  8. I can't see much differance from the 650 but it looks like they may have made some changes to the primer station system.
  9. I use a Mr. Bullet feeder on my Dillon 650. I load 44-40 molly coated bullets. I use the Mr. Bullet feeder in .45 and my .428 bullets feed fine with it. Lead bullets with lube tend to gum up the works so if you want to use the Mr. Bullet feeder you should go to molly coated bullets.
  10. I have a pair of Iver Johnson Pocket pistols. The are 5 shot in 32 CF and can shoot smokless powder. Because of there age they are not without issues. The first one fires and indexes great but I have been told that it is shaving lead. The second does not always fire. I am not sure if it was my ammo or the gun. I figure they are worth $400 each and would be willing to trade the two of them for you pair of Outlaws. Please let me know if you are intrested.

  12. I'll take it. Can you accept Paypal?
  13. I got it mainly to use on my 45acp when I shoot league. I always mark my brass on the head stamp area and I figured that this might save a step and be more ovious when hunting down "my" brass.
