  1. I use this to swage my 223 brass because it works well on a progressive press, thus saving time from handling brass for another step. https://swageit.com/swage-it-small-large-primer-pocket-swager-for-the-dillon-xl750/
  2. I could not figure out my decapping issues that began suddenly. I was getting finished rounds with old primers still in place. Look what I found! The .22lr case and stuck primer prevented primers from being fully pushed out. The partially pushed out used primers would be set again on stage two when a new primer would reseat the old one. I quickly adopted better brass cleaning and sorting practices after this situation.
  3. Clean shot 3.6 gr, 147 blue bullets round nose, cci 500 primers, and plunk test in your gun for length. I get about 130 power factor. If new to reloading, get a chrono ASAP!

  4. 3.7 gr cleanshot 147 blue round nose 1.100 +/-.03 oal 131-132 power factor stock cz shadow 2 At an indoor match I was accused of shooting bunnie farts and asked to chrono my ammo, I was accused of sub 125 power factor by friendly shooters. On site my ammo chronoed 131-132 just as I promised. Fellow shooters were scratching their heads, but pleasantly surprised. I could reduce the charge, but this cycles all of my guns better than 3.2-3.5 gr. I lose 2 power factor from my Dan Wesson PM 9 and gain 3 power factor from my Canik Tap9sfx. Therefore
  5. Remember, you can always call Dillon while standing in front of the machine and they will walk you through the troubleshooting steps. Great service crew. Bet they can have you running in 20 minutes.
  6. Watch to see if your brass is being fed too far into position, causing the top of the brass to lean towards the center of the shell plate, then when the feeder pulls back, watch to see if the brass rocks back and moves away from the center of the shell plate, causing the brass to no longer be centered under the die. If if the top of the brass is rocking, your feeding mechanism need to be adjusted. I had had this problem.
  7. So, by over sprung, this means the recoil spring is too stiff, thus slowing down the slide travel to the rear, but also slamming the slide forward with too much force? The slow slide hinders extraction and ejection? During my first shooting session I was using hand loads with a power factor of 125-130 and the brass was reluctant to make it 2-3 feet away from me while my Ruger Lc9s was ejecting the same ammo 10 feet away. Also, twice it would not strip the next round from the magazine, and the bullet would hang up on the feed ramp. I may need to look into so
  8. A canik tp9sfx landed in my safe due to black friday. I have read many discussions about changing spring because the pistol is “over-sprung”, however, i have searched for explanations and symptoms of an over-sprung pistol. Can anyone explain these to me? this firearm appears to be a praised budget friendly competition capable gun. I will be using it potentially for uspsa or multigun as a weekend shooter.
  9. This barrel also shoots 55-73gr bullets equally well. My previous barrel was terribly critical of ammo used. It was fussy with powder charges, too.
  10. I recently swapped a frustrating 16” factory barrel for an Aero Precision 18” stainless deep fluted barrel for about $200 on sale. I lapped the receiver during the swap. Using a vortex 1-8 red dot it shoots sub 1” groups using a cheap rock river 2 stage trigger and sloppy plastic piccatini rail mounted $18 bipod. With a better scope, trigger, and base to rest on, I believe it could be 1/2” moa all day. The Aero barrels are made by ballistic advantage.
  11. Update I just called Lee, and they said their brass trimmers will not work on this press.
  12. I wonder if there is a good option to use this for trimming .223 brass and then run the brass through again to swage. I load on a 750, but need an affordable way to process brass outside of the house. Any ideas/knowledge on trimming?
  13. I am new to shooting sports (3yrs), and new to reloading (1yr). I bought a Dillon 750 recently and decided to load 9mm and .223. In in two years I spent hundreds of $$$ chasing down ammo that my savage ar-15 would shoot well for blasting paper, 3-gun, home defense, and mostly hunting. The only ammo that worked was $1.25 per round! Not a solution for me. After a little learning and trials with errors, I am now loading .223 rounds for blasting paper at event, long range steel targets, bench rest bullseye, and very accurate hunting for about $0.49 per round including buy
  14. When I ordered my xl750, Dillon was out of stock and estimated a three week + backorder timeframe. Bobcat Armament had everything in stock. I assumed that Dillon would have inventory when others didn't. I was wrong.
  15. How will using magnum primers vs standard small pistol primers affect the exact same load? Example is magnums used in place of regular Winchester primers the same projectiles and same powder drop?Winchester Is power factor affected? Felt recoil?
