650 operational dimension?


Recommended Posts

Looking to replace my SDB with 650. Currently loading on SDB inside a semi-walk in closet due to space limitation.

The closet is tall enough, about 7 or 8 feet high ceiling, and pretty deep about 50 inches deep. However, the width is very limited. I think only about 23-25 inches wide.

Will I be able to operate 650 (with a strong mount) in this space? What is the max width when the bullet tray, finished cartridge tray are both installed on the strong mount?

Can someone please measure and let me know? Thanks.

When you get your 650 mount it on the strong mount, and then move it around until you find the best place to mount it on your bench.

I like a 30 inch height for the bench. (So I can sit down and reload (Old & Fat)

I used a couple large C clamps to hold the 650 down and as stated, run the press. (Assuming you're using the strong mount).

Then you can always loosen them and move the press around until you find the right spot then bolt it down from there.

OK.

One more question - does adding a Mr. Bullet Feeder increase width or depth needed to "comfortably" operate the 650? From the pictures/videos I have seen, MBF attaches to the case feeder. How much wider would that make?
