Reloading .223 Rem On The Dillon XL 650




What do you think about this video?

Aidan steel: i noticed that the tips of your brass are grey. did you anneal and re-size them?

bartz118: I agree Miss August is looking fine!

Chandler Simpson: With the press, bullet tray, and the bin to catch the bullets, how many inches from side to side does it take on your reloading bench?

aracp: If you have already deprimed, sized, and trimmed why run the size die and lube stage?

Jordan Walter: What dies do you use and what kind of runout/consistency do you see?

groovymoon: One question.. I like to and prime everything. I assume the XL650 can be run without primers, just don't pucs the handle all the way back.. correct? And why did you not trim to length first?

groovymoon: Interesting video. I am always interested to see what other re-loaders are doing. However I am concerned about dry tumbling in your immediate loading area, especially with walnut and especially sorting after tumbling.. My process order starts with Sort -> Tumble In the garage (or outside in the summer) with corn cob -> Decap/Resize -> Wet tumble...etc.. I like to tumble in the garage because I don't want any of the dust to get in my house and I don't want it around my reload area. Also, corn cob makes far less dust than walnut. The dust most likely has lead in it as well as other toxins. Also, I have had good results with IMR 4895 and 69g Sierra HPBT MK's.

Grass Hopper: can you load 308 win

Michael Schuler: sounds like pink Floyd ..money

George A: I have question will this work for all bullets or will I need to keep buying different parts

Ryan Welling: What happens when u get a crimped primer pocket 

Danny Meyers: Thank you for the excellent video - very nice to watch. I have a question.. How do those primers that appear at the small catch tray beneath the primer tube get there? What causes them to fall out of the process?

Thank you for posting this vid.

G56AG: I forgot to mention that its not a good idea to run the powder that low in the powder measure, I never let it get below about 1/4 point on the clear tube, or really more like a min of 1/3.  The accuracy of the powder throw isn't as good when they get real low. I know a lot of people like to put a 45 case on top of the primer follower, that normally isn't needed, the primer follower is for the low primer warning system, it isn't needed for the primer system to operate properly, before the low powder warning came out in the late 80's, Dillon didn't use anything at all on top of the primers, and I used mine like that for years before I got the low primer warning and never had a single problem.

G56AG: I run my rifle brass prep in batches, I size, clean, then run the cases through my Giraud trimmer, the cases are then stored "ready to load". In place of my sizing die on the Dillon, I use a universal decapping die to ensure the flash holes aren't blocked, then they just rotate through the reloading process as normal.  I size on my old Rock Chucker, some people do it on their Dillon by using a empty tool head with only the sizing die installed.

Theophilus Fernleaf: ThIs was actually entertaining to watch the process bring done. Thanks for the upload hombre. 

MS3GN: Your videos are great and have helped me a lot since I got my 650. (In fact, I have used very few other videos to learn and get going.)

2 Questions with regards to .223:

1. If you do not deprime first, at what point do you clean the case lube off and how?

2. If you deprime and resize first, I presume your lubing process is the same, but then at what point do you clean the case lube off and how before loading?

Thanks!

James Sween: You could also improve, by mounting your press on a solid 4" pipe and bolt it to the floor, so you don't get any wobble. I had a lot of trouble with mine causing a lot of problems with powder spitting out  of the cace. and primers flipping on its side and causing jams.

webb1t1212: Hi just wondering what the prices for the bullet heads are like in the US as I was looking at 308 heads here in the UK and they look very expensive! 

christopher baglin: you don't always have to start forward
I have one and it does not have that problem

christopher baglin: bl-c2 works well with 223
