    Note condition:

    Purchased Nov 2014 from S/Shooters for $650 (have receipt) and unpacked and set up about 4 months ago - has loaded about 300 rounds total

    I've had problems with the primer feed and bought new pickup tubes but I've run out of patience with this thing and I'm going back to my single stage

    As picture shows I've bent the little wire doodad on top but it still works - will be sold empty of the AP70 powder and back in it's box - comes with low primer alarm (not shown)


    I'm away for work all week next week so the bidding goes as follows-

    First person in the Wellington region who wants to pay $400 and can pick up Sunday night takes it

    If no-one is keen in Welly this weekend then I will post to first person outside the region to PM me and will pay $420 (to cover postage)


    Please don't post advice like "Nah ya wanna do it this way" or "Why don't ya keep it and do this..." as my patience is limited in this area

    Cheers all and have a good weekend

    I had trouble with it picking up at the bottom of the tube and some primers rolled over and got stuck in the tube but I've only tried small ones, haven't touched the large primer system.

    It would probably suit someone with greater mechanical aptitude and patience

    It's a bugger the press only does pistol calibres
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone

    Off the market now - I've spoken to other guys at the club with the same press and they've run into the same problem so rather than flick off a lemon I will get back to them and see if I can get any joy.

    Will keep yas updated if I get much luck

    Update

    This press has known issues to do with the primer tube dispenser and pickup - primers tumbling in the tube, the plastic lip at the bottom of the tube being sheared off by the pickup set at the wrong height, etc

    To save this unit being dragged out into the yard and receiving a 12-Gauge fix I have boxed this piece of shit up and sent it back to Serious Shooters.

    I have nothing against Dillon's other presses and will be putting my store credit towards a 650 but I will never touch another Square B as long as I live

    Be warned.
