Default XL650 458 socom caliber conversion

after several weeks of experimenting i have the dillon xl650 working perfectly with the 458 socom including casefeeder. so anyone interested here is the list of conversion components:

#4 locator pin ( #1 45 acp pins are not quite right and sometimes cause case rims to hit die edge)
#1 shellplate
#1 1st station shell locator
XL case feed arm assembly with accompanying XL arm bushing.(this is critical to proper case feeding without error the assembly comes with xl arm and xl body bushings. my starline brass the rebated rims do not sink into the case mouths)
S&W 500 yellow modified case feed arm adaptor
large rifle plate for case feeder (500 test cases 1 dropped upside down)
45 ACP powder funnel

Man wish I'd done Moore research I got a 450 bushmaster great round but few reloading options. 458 has many Moore options for bullet choice. Although the 450 has killed 2 sows about 150 lbs each in one shot through both shoulders and exited back of 2 nd hog not to be found the bullet that is, this was at 125 yards. Not too shabby but I like rolling my own!

Well you see there, your attitude is all wrong! Why have 1 when you can have 2?

Go out and get yourself a .458SOCOM

make sure you check out prices online as an upper is not a firearm and can be shipped right to your door. ive never seen a 458 socom at a gunshow cheaper than a new one online. i can recomend the RRA it goes bang when the trigger is pulled and is very accurate. mine is a basic midlength.
