Nice long title.
Got my Dillon 650 yesterday for a birthday present. Set up initially for 5.56.
Not on my bench yet.
Shot my Ruger .45 for first time since I bought it 20 years ago. Shoot low and left a bit. have to work on front sight. Tried from the hip and a little better but unfamiliar territory.
Most of my dies are RCBS, some 40 years old. From time to time I have passed on buying Redding dies because they were, what I considered too high. Reloading, in part is about saving a lot of money. I was considering buyin .45 dies from Midway. I read some reviews of RCBS dies and saw familiar problems, like with carbide dies leaving a swell at the rim end. The Redding dies must be really good because they were around ninety dollars for a 3 die set with carbide sizer.
Anyone have an opinon they justify the price over the RCBS? One other thing the rCBS always give me concer about crimping the bullets in 5.56 and i carefull make sure all my cases are the same length. Do the RCBs do any better?
I have four different brands of dies. I have Lee, RCBS, Redding and another brand I can't remember. To me they all work about the same. One thing I have to say for Lee...I have never broken a decapper. Not so with the others. Lee is the only one I have not broken at least once. And I have more Lee dies than any other brand.
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
