  1. Also doesn’t work well with lead. I didn’t think about it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I’ve not been out there yet. Ohio valley I passed almost daily so I would sneak over for lunch or before getting boys from School. Going to have to check out billet ranch next winter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I used to shoot at Ohio Valley I ip they closed. I’ve also shot at a club in Circleville. With two young kids, I haven’t really been shooting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hello josh! Also from central Ohio. Haven’t shot competition in a few years, but their are some good places around here Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for the feedback everyone. This stage in life I am not shooting as much as I would like, but with two young boys I hope to be shooting with them soon. 650 seems like a good investment long term and a great companion to the 550. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I currently have a 550 that is serving me well. I am finding however that I rarely switch it over to other calibers because I always want it ready to load 9mm, the caliber I shoot the most. I am almost ready to pull the trigger on a second press, a 650, but wonder how difficult it is to jump back and forth between the two different presses. I just wonder if after loading on the 650, will I forget to manual index the 550 or place a case. Or is it much like driving a manual then driving an automatic. You may occasionally hit the brake trying to press the non existant clutch, but other than that its not that different. Thanks Sean
  7. I know this is an old thread, but I know many of the contributors are still active. Thank you for putting my mind at ease while looking at w 650 and talking about cleaning my primer tubes. I had not read that. Only loaded on a 550 so far, and no issues, but next chance I get to speed time loading, I'm actually going to be cleaning!
  8. That’s a good idea! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Sarge, Is there a place on the die I could mark with a sharpie or something to estimate the two different bullet depths? Slvr that is a good idea! Could mark the threads and lock rings to get them to the right place every time. Cheaper than second tool head setup which was my first, expensive, idea. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’m am starting to load two different bullets on a regular bases. Both coated lead, one is 124 and the other 147. I was toying with the idea of a micrometer seating die to reduce switch over time. Originally I was looking at the Redding but for half the cost I could get a hornady seating die with their micrometer stem. Is the for my purpose is the Redding worth the extra money? Is there something I’m overlooking that I could also do with my current LEE die that I could do for less? Thanks Sean Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I know many people love them. I do believe it could have been user error, but I couldn’t seem to find the answer to get it dialed in. I love the 550, and glad I tried it before giving up on reloading. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I started with a lee classic turret and it almost got me to give up on reloading too soon. Not sure what I had wrong in the setup, but it always took me 2 hours to load 100 rounds. I think most of it was priming related. Once I got a 550, I had no more issue. This year I picked up a Rock Chucker and part of me wishes I would have started there. For the volume I was shooting at the time, it would have been fine. And I use it for small volume calibers where change overs can add up on the 550. I don’t need that much 50 ae or 308. If you can find someone local who has a 550 or Lee classic turret that’s willing to mentor, that would be great. My mentors all had single stages. One now had a lee classic turret, and primes off the press Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I was wondering the same recently. Got my 550 the way it should BE Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I made the same switch a few years back. the lee classic turret almost got me to give up on reloading. 550 has been wonderful Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Good to know! I was a bit worried about pressures loading over published but it seems to be working fine. I am up to 3.2 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
