    ok, looks like I may have another hobby!!! Yes Nzfubz safe to say I'm hooked!!!!im Just looking but after 9mm dies / a progressive press of some discription and any other 9mm related "Bit and pieces" have a small stockpile of brass to get me started and that's about it!

    I do have 100 cases of 38 special if anyone interested?

    Cheers

    Bill Wright, rusa projectiles..... great pricing and great projectiles. Think he may sell powder and primers to.

    Don't fuck around with the press either. Just buy a 650 and you won't look back. Dillon carbide dies, and case feeder.

    +1 for Bill. He does do powder and primers. I just recently bought a supply of primers and projectiles off him.

    Oh and do your research when buying a press. There are others out there that are as good as the Dillon which by the way is a great progressive press but are cheaper to purchase and run.

    Also if you ever need change caliber it costs around 70 bucks to do so.
    I load 9mm, .40, .38/.357 .223 and .308 on mine. Have a look and see what it will cost you to do all that an a dillon.

    One of the biggest benefits to the Dillons is the warranty. If you manage to break something, you just ask them nicely and they send you replacements.

    On the caliber conversions, you could always do it the American way and buy a separate 650 for each caliber. Although that may just make your eyes water.

    I have a set of Lee dies spear if you need some.

    Often these come with a progressive press, so if buying new press, best to go with new dies too.

    I know people talk about getting a 650 press, but if you want to fork out over $1k, go ahead. I've run a Lee Pro1000 and haven't ever had any issues in 5000 rounds. I bought it second hand with a spare set of dies (hence I have a spare set) and a box of extra parts. cost $200. Yeah, a 650 or even a 550 would be nice, but its just more money. Plus, changing calibre on a 650 is expensive if more than a Lee. Hornady LnL AP is super fast to swap too.
