n2brk Posted September 7, 2015 Share Posted September 7, 2015 Long story short - I have a Lee Turret that is awesome but slow for pistol production. I stepped "up"... more like stepped on IT,,, and bought the Lee Toadmaster. I went whole hog and got all the gee-gaws too. It was a turd. I went to Mike and got the full-monty of upgrades - it is still an unreliable finicky POS and I am finally just DONE with it. It'll run anywhere from 10 to 200 rounds and then hard lock up and destroy parts in the priming system. In 80 rounds last time I went through two priming troughs and 4 sliders. The time and frustration is just not worth it anymore. I want a Dillon 650! Startup price has always been my problem with the Dillon. So, I'm wondering if the collective can help me put together a package on the cheap? I am a bit overwhelmed by all of the options on the Enos site, and I am trying to pare down to the bare essentials for a starter package that I'll upgrade as I can. I load 9mm, 41 mag, 45acp, and 460 Rowland in pistol. I do .243 and 30-06 in rifle. To keep down the initial cost, I can start off with just pistol in 9mm and 45 I suppose (460 R uses the 45acp setup anyway, so that's cool). I'll load for the others on the turret and single presses for now. I see a bunch of tool heads, caliber change kits, etc etc. ASSuming that I will load a few thousand 9mm, then a few thousand 45, then... etc. I don't care if it takes me 1/2hr to change calibers if I don't buy some optional parts. For now I'll trade labor for cost, and upgrade as I can. So, if you guys/gals are able to guide me through this, I'd sure appreciate it! Thanks in advance!
