Reloading 38 Short Colt on Dillon 650.

Recommended Posts

I’ve been loading 38 Short Colt on my 550 and with my volume picking up I’m thinking about converting my 650 for it. Aside from the station 1 locator, #2 shell plate and pins cane someone tell me what bushings I need to use? Any experience would be appreciated.

If you chat with Dillon either by phone or their website, they can hook you up. I chatted with them about ordering a 650 set up for Short Colt and it's basically going to involve ordering parts ala carte.

Thanks. I have reached out to them as well. Was also hoping to hear some experiences it and how the machine performed.

Machine will perform just fine. 38 Special resize, the rest 9mm. Buttons are for 38Special because of the case. Oh, the case feed adapter is for 40.
As someone else said, call Dillon. They will hook you up.

Try N320 for powder. It is very cool and clean.

I love N320. Ordered what I need from Dillon this afternoon. Thanks for the feedback.

Converted my 650 for 38  Short Colt with Dillon’s recommended parts last night. Runs great! Next question is whether I keep my 550. With Dillon’s great support, and the fact that I try to stay way ahead on loading I can see the 550 just gathering dust. I’m also going to post over in reloading as well, but wanted to follow up here on the 38 Short Colt experience.
