Putting a crimp on ammo should not take much effort at all. Your adjustment must have been way off for you to exert that much pressure to break the handle.

i have to agree. i even now crimp all mine with a seperate crimp die, and do a very light crimp on all my loads.

very little effort is used to crimp mine.

(Just my opinion)
When the Dillon Square Deal's first came out, they had a problem with the cast aluminum operating handles. They replaced them free of charge, of course, and mine lasted with heavy use for several years before it broke. RCBS is a good company, so it is worth the extra cost - just like Dillon!

You can’t have your cake and eat it too if you are going to spend only $400.00 especially on a Chinese product. You will just end up replacing it later. I have a Dillon XL650 and it takes awhile to get use to but once you have it set she rocks!

My dad is so lazy............he hates changing tool plates on his 650. So he bought another 650!

Myself? I mostly load for 4 cartridges, so prefer two turret presses......always set up.
If I need the other two common ones I shoot.........well those 650's are set up for them

I use to set up my original plate every time I switched calipars but I got lazy and bought 3 other powder systems with toolhead and stand. makes it much easier.
