Talking Reloading items.

A couple of months ago I ordered a new Dillon Super 1050 reloading machine. I have had one or 2 for a few years now. This one was in 45 auto. I received it about a week ago and finally got to set it up...and use it. I had a standard 1050 in 45 which I got at an auction for a very cheap price..but this thing makes that neat ol loader look bad. I timed myself doing 100 rounds today...and oh my I might not have enough brass. I only have about 8000 pieces of brass. I wasn't in a real hurry and it took 6 minutes and 8 seconds for a hundred. Holy cow. So that means even loading the primers powder etc into the machine I can still do near a 1000 an hour. I might not be able to shoot 'em that fast. I also have one in 223 with Dillon's carbide 223 dies..and I can't go that fast on it. And yesterday I picked up a new Dillon 550B for a very cheap price. It had a rifle caliber conversion with it. Gonna make a friend back east a happy camper. Gonna send it to him. He's one of those guys that will never have much..but if you need a favor. He's right there.. He is one of only 2 people's reloads that I will shoot. His and mine. I also have a Dillon 550B that I do my 45 Colt on. It is a good machine. And I hesitate to say this but I bought a gag..Lee Classic cast turret press. Set it up in 44 Special. Can't say much for the powder measure for looks..but the darn thing works and I've loaded about a thousand rounds on the darn thing. One good thing I can say for it..it is made out of American iron and it is made right here in the good ol USA. Can't say that for the new RCBS Rock Chucker any more. Yep..China??
