Drank red then blue Kool-aid; blue is better
About 5 months ago, I bought a Lock-N-Load but I could not get it to run reliably so I recently bought a Dillon 550B.
Yesterday, I completed my first 500 rounds of 40sw - largely without issue. This press just WORKS!
The only glitch was that two completed cases did not get primers. I'm not sure why this happened, but I can live with this, I suppose. I'm using the optional stand and the press is mounted on a secure base. I also have the optional bullet tray and optional spent case holder.
I am sitting to the left of the press and it is difficult to see Station #1 where the cases are sized and primed. I think I can get used to this, but it is kinda weird.
I don't miss the auto-indexing function that the other press had. It never worked properly for me anyway.
