Sheldon Posted January 7, 2007 Share Posted January 7, 2007 I have a dilema right now. I currently have two Dillon 650 presses doing most of my reloading. One is set up for 9mm and is also used for 38 Special. The other is set up for 45 ACP. I recently got a Dillon 1050 cheap and it came with the conversion kits for 45 ACP, 38 Spl., and 40 S&W. It also came with an extra toolhead and powder measure. I had originally wanted to just flip it for a quick profit to buy some CMP rifles, but am wondering if I wouldn't be better off selling off the two 650 presses instead. I like the two 650 presses as each is set up for a different primer size. The 1050 looks a little more complicated and parts are more expensive, but I have most of what I need (maybe get another toolhead for the 38 Spl. and possibly swap the 40 for a 9mm kit). I believe I have the small parts to swap primer sizes on the 1050. I like the swager built in on the 1050. So what do you guys think is a better set up?? I am going to convert it over to 45 ACP as it is currently set up for 40 S&W and run about 1500 rounds of military crimped brass I have sitting here thru it and see how well it works....if nothing else I get to process them cases.
