Old Blue Broke

Well after having the Dillion Precision 650XL for 26 years it has remained a remarkably reliable piece of equipment. I have had 3 parts fail in that time with the last being a part of the powder measure system.

I sent Dillion an email on Sunday of last week and Friday the new part showed up. Their lifetime no BS warranty has been great for the few times I have needed it over the years. I would step up to a Dillion 1050 or 1100 but they want 2K for a new one these days. That’s 20,000 9mm handload rounds as I am at about $100 per thousand rounds on my old 650, and I just can’t justify it unless I start shooting a whole, I mean WHOLE lot more. Which I just don’t see happening.
