Dillon Trim Die Question

Recommended Posts

I have the RT 1500 and am trimming on the 650 with a standard toolhead for 223/5.56 brass. i got a couple of vertical lines on the case necks so I took the cover off that the shop vac attaches to. There was a fair amount of brass shavings accumulated in there. There is not much of a gap between the die lock nut and the upper die lock nut ring for the shop vac to evacuate the shavings.

I am assuming the vertical scratch is cosmetic and I can use the brass?

Is there advantage to using the XL650 short trim die toolhead? Will it be easier to set up and evacuate the shavings better.

I am not trimming 300 blackout.

Thanks in advance!!
