  1. I use trimmed once fired for my long range 5.56 loads. I use twice or more fired brass for 55 grain burner loads. I have a good supply of once fired LC brass so I am able to use this practice. I tumble brass for hours. I, perhaps falsely, think that the smoother shinier brass may be more reliable feeding wise.
  2. I don't think the SDB will load the 44 WCF or the 32 ACP. The BL should work but if you get it I would get the ejection chute or whatever is called. If it were me, I would get another 550.
  3. Power Pistol is probably the most accurate pistol propellant I have used. I don't use it for competition because its not as soft shooting as Sport Pistol or N320. I think unless your going for max velocity in a 10mm or magnum, there are a lot of multi-functional pistol propellants that will work.
  4. Lee Pistol 4 die sets are a good thing for pistol IMO. The Dillon dies will work also, I have a mix and use mostly Lee. Forster inline seaters dies decreased my runout with 223. I have no dog in the fight regarding Inline Fabrication. I can say that the bullet tray mounted up on the strong mount is a significant ergonomic advantage. I would make sure thats available from Inline Fabrication as well.
  5. Winchester small pistol also.
  6. I think a new shooter with reasonable aptitude can run a Dillon 750. I have two 650's so I cannot comment precisely on the 750. You may have to scrounge for components for a while checking frequently for what you're looking for. Make sure you get on everyone's mailing list. We have been down this road before sadly. My Dillon press experience started with a 550 mounted directly to the bench. I now have strong mounts and bullet trays on all my presses and find the ergonomics of that to be superior. I would order your press with the two conversion kits you want, or at least the
  7. I think the early Gen 5's had a short chamber. I heard they changed that. I have a new gen 5 19. Maybe I will compare a couple of dummy rounds.
  8. I bought a guide rod from Jager, no spacers needed. I thought a spacer may induce failure, or at least, I was afraid of it. http://www.jagerproducts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=35&products_id=116&zenid=14mddul8vg8045kp9omf4ipn06
  9. 35 but I would stay with 9mm till your skills improve.
  10. I was shocked when I first shot a Gen 5 34. It was noticeably better. What you are going to get is a better trigger, more accuracy and ability to run a dot without milling. I personally like the no finger grooves but that is not a game changer to me. I have been into Glocks for about 20 years and the Gen 5's are the best yet IMO and its not even close. Do I stake my life on the older Gen's, yes. For competition is there is better trigger and accuracy in the Gen 5, yes. The downside is that if your a Dawson adjustable sight guy, the sight dovetail is so far rearward for the MOS system you
  11. I usually shoot limited whether I am running minor or major with my 34 or 35. Lately, for 9mm I have been adding a TTI grandmaster kit, Jager SS guide rod, IMSI 13# spring, Dawson Fiber optics, for the Gen 5 I add the gen 4 extended mag release, for the Gen 3 and older I have run extended or not extended mag release. For the Gen 4 or 5 they are so close you can hardly tell the difference. I don't think there would be any harm with a tungsten guide rod. I have not heard good word of mouth on Double Diamond stuff. I think you can get most of the parts I listed except t
  12. Justy set the die up per the instructions that come with the die. When you set it up, a half a turn (of knurled knob) for a light crimp, full turn for a heavy crimp. I recently set up a 40 FCD and did 3/4 of a turn on the knob and it indented a jacketed bullet circumferentially pretty good so I backed it off to 1/2 turn. Just pull a couple bullets to see if you have too much crimp.
  13. Conservation of momentum is the property zzt is talking about. That is different than energy.
  14. I have an early Gen 5 34, no front cocking serrations and I think I paid $675 at LGS.
  15. I like the SB because I can flip the rounds into my Dillon boxes. If I get one that is tight in the SB I check it in a Dillon gauge. If it passes the Dillon gauge It goes in the box, if not, it get recycled. I did not know Lyman made a 100 round gauge.
