  2. I tried out a different Dillon tool head and still have same problem. Put the plastic upgrade part from E-Bay and works like a charm on 9mm. Will see if it is needed for the next run of 223.
  3. Gerritm, pretty sure all of my tool heads are Dillons, but will try a different tool head this week end. Thanks for direction.
  4. Stick you answered my 2nd question, the Roto Cam. Thanks
  5. Anyone using one of these? Trying to get my 650 to run as smooth as possible. All so they now make a Dillon XL 650 Roto-Cam is it worth the bucks?
  6. Guess I'll try one out. Been having same problem with my 650 running 9mm lately. Even tried a new ejector wire and problem does not go away. Any ideal what is the difference between his two versions?
  7. I just donated. When you consider the wealth of information that we all contribute to and draw from here, $25.00 dollars works out to $.068 a day!

    .223 Case Gauges

    Same problem here with the 7 round EGW .223 gauge. I use their other case gauges for handgun and they all work fine,
  9. H335, TAC or Winchester 748 work great in my 550 and 650 for loading bulk 55 gr bullets for my ARs, Heavier bullets that I use with Varget I use a automatic powder measure.

    Just bought a xl650 for my first reloader

    Feed stores are another good source of cheap Walnut hull and corn cob, also alot of people add a cap full of Nu-Finish car polish to the tumbler. By the way welcome to the Blue Club!

    Ruminations on case-gauging

    Every thing I reload for goes through a case gauge. I have several EGW gauges and they work fine. The 9mm I have is a little tighter fit than my Dillon gauge, but being able to check several rounds at a time speeds things up. The ones that stick are checked out on a Dillon gauge and used in practice in the pass. Also the nice thing about the EGW gauges is any high primers stick out.

    Best way to separate SS pins

    I use my Dillon separator and pan filled with water. after a couple of days drying I put them in the Dillon seperator again, a couple of cranks and any left over pins fall out. I do not decap my brass as I have once in a great moon have gotten a small pin stuck in flash hole. I understand there are large SS pins out there that do no get stuck.

    9mm Bullet diameter?

    Guys thanks for all of the input/advice. I have been shooting the extremes .356 147 gr bullets and was offered some in .355 diameter to try out. Going to cast up some soft lead to slug the barrel.

    9mm Bullet diameter?

    Can someone educate me as to why does Extreme Bullets offer 9mm bullets in both .355 and .356 diameter.
