Finally got the Dillon XL 750 press up and running. Took some doing to work out the bugs. Runs like a champ now. Test fired some of the first run of 9 mm ammo I loaded on it.

Pretty cool. Dillons are nice for pistol ammo so long as the powder charges are consistent (LOL). Well, as consistent as possible. Tongue in cheek. Nice customer service. You know I use a Lee Turret. Looks like your loads ran just fine. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks brother. The powder measure is the most consistent I’ve used to date. Until I got this press the I used the Lee Turret press and it is great, but as good as it is this Dillon is that much better. I was very luck to get this deal. Thanks for watching and you comments.

I prefer the hornady iron press. I think it makes higher quality cartridges.
Dillion precision is popular with many workers for its production. I and many other would prefer single stage and put in the time to get a reasoble volume. Higher volume requires more workers and the Dillion is normally after a factory is set up with numerous single stage press tools. The increase in production is after production reaches a high level only increased be even. M Ore men.
The efficiency and speed compliment higher volume factory set ups that can support a fighting force.

I loaded everything pistol and rifle on a single stage for years and I mean decades. You definitely get a better product with a single stage press and I will still load certain cartridges on my RCBS single stage press. But this Dillon XL750 is awesome for pistol rounds. I did load some 45 ACP on the 550B today and it went well. I do still think I will be using it just for certain rifle cartridges like 308 that I will shoot in an AR10. I will stick to single stage for my bolt guns. Thanks for great comments.

Surprised you had so many start up problems with XL 750. My old XL 650 ran great right out of the box. The only issue I had was a little powder spillage if I went to fast with the handle when the shell plate would index to a stop. Learned to slow down a bit which took care of most of the problem.

I thought it was odd as well. Everything was off with it. I had to adjust the case feed, they would not automatically feed. Then like I said the indexing was off. I had the absolute worst issues with the primer system. Took far roo many adjustments than it should. Loaded 1000 9mm this morning in no time though. Love this machine. I played with the 550 B this afternoon and loaded about 50 45 ACP. I should have started on that press as there is twice as much work to it. Took awhile to get in the right rhythm with it. It ran great though, the previous owner had it set up just right.
