  1. I just had this happen last week and this is how I got it out. I didn't realize this is apparently a not so rare breakage. I ordered a new one and received it in 5 days. I tried calling to see if it was covered by warranty , but could never get through.
  2. I ordered 2625 125gn bullets from BBI on Tuesday Sep 29. They are already out to UPS for delivery on Oct 6!!
  3. I have a subscription with Blue Bullets- 3300 135gr TC 9mm for 12 months. Started it in late July and received the first month shipment Aug 19th. Today they told me to expect the 2nd month shipment in mid October.
  4. It is available. Cost is not comparable -190 euros = $225 usd
  5. I contacted Umberto on facebook. He responded on Messenger that the cost is 190 euros sent via Fedex and pay via PayPal.
  6. I don't think there is a adjustment for primer depth on the 750. Dillon says: "Push down on the edge of the shellplate at station 4. If it feels springy, then the shellplate bolt needs to be slightly tighter." I can check that.
  7. That's interesting, I didn't think about that. I assumed that the magnum rifle primers were just harder. I am using a Dillon 750.
  8. I have the Primer Pro. No problems at all with CCI and Federal primers - SPP, SPMP, SRP, SRMP. I have had 5 upside down primers out of 20K. Loads a tube of CCI in less than a minute [Federals are a little slower], much faster than I can load a 100 rounds on my Dillon 750. It does not require me to watch it while I am reloading. I do not take it apart for maintenance. I take the drum off and wipe all exposed surfaces with Pledge and then a dry paper towel. I use Pledge on a Q-tip and wipe down the feed ramp , and all the opening slots in the drum itself from both sides.
  9. Just to add to this. I have recently gotten some CCI small rifle magnum primers. I loaded up 100 of them and shot them at the range today. I had 7 light strikes out of the 100 in both of my X5 Legions. They all fired the 2nd time. Looks like they are only good as training ammo - to induce random malfunction practice.
  10. I have used small pistol, small pistol match, small pistol magnum, and small rifle with no problems and no appreciable differences out of X5 Legion. I load 125/135 Blue Bullets w/Sport Pistol.
  11. I have an X5 Legion. I load with 1.1 to 1.2 OAL. [max 1.25] with various coated bullets 115 rn, 135 tc and rn and 147 tc.
  12. Blue Bullets are available in .356
  13. +1, been using these {Hanes} for a couple of years, generally 2 for $18 and multiple colors. For me they work as well, or better, than many very pricey shirts I have tried.
