Setting up the 650 again. .223 dies coming. .308 next, then .45 and 9mm
Nice. Does it feel good to be back?
Q: did you store you 650 for those 15 years, or is this a new one? If stored, what did you do to pickle it for rust prevention?
re: 308 reloading on 650 press:
F Y I: I ran into avantage to order the 'small base X series' dies for the 308 in my own project despite having a prior die set.
Good to see a bit of reloading time reentering your list of pleasantries.
Nice, Very nice.. If only I could learn how to keep such a neat and tiddy reloading bench..
Love my 650's
Actually I sold it to my brother and I doubt he loaded more than 40 rounds on it. It took me over 2 hours to disassemble it and clean it. (used WD40 sparingly) The handle barely moved when I got it back. Now it works just fine. LOL...what contributed to the problem of being locked up was small primers in a large primer tray that jammed up the turret. Plus the primer early warning system was corroded from having the same battery I must have put in 15 years ago. (Dillon sent me a new one at no charge!)
Just got my .308 dies Friday.
Give him time and I'm guessing it may not be as neat.
Try as I may I can't keep mine clean.
Plus every time I get a large space cleared
Off someone else deposits something there.
Well, if your house is anything like mine, a clear flat spot is a sin and MUST be covered by something!
