  1. Went from a 550 to a 650 for pistols but I had crazy great consistency loading rifle with my 550. I just don't shoot a ton of rifle compared to pistol so it made sense to make the switch. Havent started loadimg 308 or 3006 but I'm crazy anal about my OAL for both. +- .005 is the most ill take for loading my 308. I could get that no problem with my 550 all day long but even loading pistol with the 650 I'm taking a hit in OAL in exchange for speed. Obviously I want consistency with my 308 loads. Anyone have ang any problem achieving this? What cheap single stage press would you guys recommend that gets great consistency?
  2. Great .005-.007. I'm really disappointed in the lack of consistency I'm getting tho. My 550 was +- .003 MAX. The 650 is +- .006. It sucks loading for major and flirting with how long I can load before the bullet is shoved into the lands and starts causing pressure issues.
  3. Found out the problem and just like I figured, 100% complete user error. Just embarrassing. The little clip that spits out a live round was under the shell plate screw. Just embarrassing, but I swear I'm safe on the range! Lol
  4. So my dies are tight and so is the shell plate. I screwed the plate all the way tight then backed off 1/16 of a turn like I've read on the forum. I'm loading 40 and looking for a window of 1.175-1.178 is acceptable. When I set the die I'm only putting one shell in the shell plate to get it set. Once it is set, I load the entire plate with cases to make sure everything is set properly. Once I verify it, I start loading. Once I check a couple rounds I'm getting spreads from 1.168-1.180. Wtf? I called Dillon and they said .020 is acceptable in their manual. Wtf because I had a 550 and that sucker was spot on. Also, sometimes I would load a single round to check and see (with an empty shell plate) and it would seat the bullet all the way in the case? Any help would be great.
  5. Lol yes you do. Was totally being a smart ass by the way!
  6. Ok me your phone number and I can send you my address so you can buy me one..sounds like your rolling it in anyway maybe you can help a brother out
  7. Title says it all. $100 is rediculous for a pair of reverse pliers and a hammer. I can buy all those parts, but what do you guys use to slide in your tube to hammer the lips inward?
  8. So you do have to fill out paperwork even tho the gun is off the books?
  9. If I were to take a 80% lower and finish it myself to make an off the books gun, could I also make it into a 10" sbr without filling out paper work?
  10. Thanks guys
  11. I HATE the word tactical. I refuse to go into any store or look on any website if it has the word "tactical" attached.
  12. You come to the end of the course and you have to make a hard lean around a baracade to shoot the last target. You shoot twice as your leaning out of the shooting area and right as your foot hits the ground to catch you from falling over you fire the 3rd shot and it ends up on the target. Now no one knows where it hit on the target so how do you score it? There are a total of 3 holes on target. Can you give me the rule number also in the book?
  13. I've always used FRN and it works fine but was at a match where a guy shooting limited was using hollow point extremes. What are the pros/cons?
  14. That doesn't answer the question
