    I dont really know the processing of loading or reloading, but that machine ONLY sits the bullet into the casing? Or does it prime and fill it with powder also?

    on a dillon XL650, which is what I have

    station 1: resize cartridge and de-prime
    station 2: insert primer, bell upper edge of cartridge to accept bullet, fill with pre-measured amount of powder
    station 3: check powder fill, sound alarm if out of tolerance
    station 4: seat bullet
    station 5: crimp bullet

    everytime you pull the lever, each station does its function and another round pops out

    with the dillon XL650/550 you have to do two things-

    a.) place the case
    b.) place the bullet

    with a case feeder (available for both from dillon), which acts like a paintball gun's hopper, rotates when needed and feeds cases down to the plate, the only thing left to do is place the bullet

    with this bullet feeder add on, all you do is pull the handle and a round pops out...now imagine an air compressor pulling the handle for you.............

    How much would a setup like that cost? :eek3:. I'm going to be getting a dillon XL550 or 650 very soon.

    i picked up my XL650 already "accessorized" out for about $950

    threw some more $$ at it to tool for 45ACP, but you can go the minimum route (just dies/conversion kit) or you can go all out (quick change stand, seperate tool head, etc)

    I did the latter, of course, but reloading is fun!, I will make a savings in shooting 1000rounds/month doing IPSC and also the 50cal weapons i have are great reloading candidates
