I would try just about anything right now to get playing. I was using Titegroup and and Clays on my friends press, those are the two I was familiar with. So any leads would be appreciated.

9mm & 40s&w are what I will be loading. Like I said the two I'm familiar with (I'm a new reloader) are Clays and Titegroup. I bought bullets & primers in anticipation of getting a press but haven't found powder. What do you like?

So my buddy only had a half pound of Titegroup but I was able to swindle a cup full. I've loaded a few 9mm with 125gr black bullet moly coated bullets that hopefully I can go shoot tomorrow. I'd load more but hate to find out that the load sucks. So I can't go to town loading yet. My question is, I also have some Extreme 115gr bullets and was wondering if all I would have to do is change my powder load? Or would I have to change my OAL with the seating die as well? That way I could load a few of those as well to test and give me reason to keep loading. Wich by the way is AWESOME!

Probably just the load. Let me know what you like with your tightgroup work up I'll be working up one as soon as I clear out what is left of the power pistol in the hopper. 124 extreme rn

Have you checked Gallenson's. They had tightgroup a while back. I bought a bottle then. I've also seen it show up on KSL and UGE regularly.

I have quite a bit of Clay Dot, very similar to Clays, and have had decent success with 124 grain bullets. Clays and Clay Dot are pretty fast burning so velocity is on the slower side but it works.

Send me a PM if you are interested and we can work something out.

If you want some, I've got 5 lbs left in an 8lbs jug of Titegroup. I've got plenty, so if I don't have to drive it's yours for $100

$20/lb That is a very generous offer, thank you! However I got in on a order from PV for some and I feel I will be doing the same as you and sharing with friends for cost.

(UPDATE) Dillon XL 650!

Postby Photocell » Wed 08 Apr 2015 5:16 pm

So let me just start by saying this press has been AWESOME! & Dillon's CS is probably one of the best I've ever dealt with in any industry. That said I have just finished my case feeder addition. Now it's REALY "alive"! Time to crank out some fun!

I love how you've figured out to reduce floor space by mounting it on the ceiling. Heck, I might have room for reloading if I can work though out.

Actually!........ I know you should minimize distractions while reloading, but, it is a certified dillon product and that wall "needing shelving" was a perfect fit. :crown:

:ROFL: I didn't understand what you meant. I was using my mobile and both pictures are right on that. I am now on the computer and well, yah! Wonder how I fix that.

No one should make decisions for us when it comes to guns and gun carry. If we do things we're not comfortable with because someone told us it's 'right' it becomes a distraction in an event where clarity and simplicity is needed.
