I gave my 650 gto my son, but I still have my upgraded 450.
I prime and charge powder as well on mine. I've done extensive accuracy testing over the years, and I see no reason to weigh charges. They're tack drivers as they come from the powder measure.
In addition to pistol calibers, I load 5.56, .30-30 and 7.62 on the old Dillon 450.
