Dusty Devil Dale Posted April 18, 2020 Share Posted April 18, 2020 I just added two things to a Dillon XL650. The first was a center mounted 22 led light, which makes it possible to visually (roughly) check for powder before inserting bullets. It will help avoid squibs caused by no powder. (It's a fail safe after the usual Powder Check stage, which has worked for me preventing double or overcharges, but has not always caught failed powder drops.) The second fix is very low tech and cheap. After dumping a couple hundred rounds of .38 brass into the case loader on top of a handful of remaining .32 H&R mag cases, and spending a half hour sorting them out, I installed a couple 12" x12" mirror tiles on the ceiling, directly over my unit. At a glance I can now verify if the case loader is empty, or know when I need to add brass. Previously, I used a short ladder, which always seemed to team up with my laziness and procrastination, to cause problems. Just thought I'd pass these on for those who may have interest.
