Default Pulled the trigger on a 650 xl

I went back and forth with the hornady l&l. Decided that all the feedback on Dillons excellent customer service made me lean their way. Set up was pretty easy. Had fun loading my first 500 45acp. 230 gr. 3.9 gr. Clays. Already burned up a couple hundred rounds and no ftf! Very satisfied. Added a powder sensor. Up front cost was a pretty penny but hey, its only greenbacks, and every day that goes by theyre worth a little less. Maybe bullets will be a bartering items like eggs.

Default Maybe they'll be like eggs....

I think ammo will be the new gold pretty soon.
I know what I'm making is darn near as shiny as gold.

But there is an old saying, "Chrome don't make it go."

Accuracy: It begins in what you load, and where you hit down the road.

About a year ago I wrestled with the LNL Vs. 650 decision. I am very glad I went with the 650. I have loaded thousands of 9mm and just converted mine to 45 for the first time.

They are more expensive up front. Converting calibers is more expensive, BUT I love my 650!

Hope you have the same experience I did!

A little over a year ago I made the same choice myself. I went with the red over the blue machine but it was a toss up, both have their little quirks.
The 650 is an awesome machine and will provide you with a lifetime of use. Congratulations!

Great choice. You will get many lifetimes of use out of it without any problems.

Maybe.
But you need silver to kill werewolves. Or was that vampires?
