A little ticked off.

I save my money, I sell my press for more. Now I have the money to upgrade to a Hornady LNL and I can't find one.

Midsouth is saying mid June.

GRRRRRRRRR .....

Give these guys a try.

http://www.gunstop.com

They are about 45 minutes from where I live and have lots of stuff. If what you want isn't listed on their website, give them a call. They don't list everything they have in stock.

I have bought several things off E-Bay in the past. But somehow or another I'm not so sure about this time.

I want to make sure the serial number is above 7000. This way it will have all the upgrades and I don't see any cost savings.

Great suggestion, but I'm a little uncertain.

PM the seller and ask them how new the press is or for the serial number.

It may be worth it to visit one of the big stores (Cabelas, Bass Pro, Sportsman's Warehouse, etc).

I picked mine up a few weeks ago at a local Cabelas and last weekend I saw a a couple at the local Sportsman's Warehouse.

FWIW.

This guy has his, plus some extras, for sale at $500.

Granted, the reason for the thread is that he's having problems with it, but generally I find that most people have problems because they aren't following instructions properly.

There are a good many used entire setups that come available on craigslist...at considerable savings over buying new. Craigslist is the only place that I will buy Dillon setups as I continue to add them to my bench as I replace the Lee 1000's.

You may end up having to call the closest box stores to see if they have one on the shelf. I know the Cabellas an hour's drive from here has several on the shelves. Though I could not find the item on the website at all. Midway has every progressive press listed as out of stock.

Hope so, it runs like a fine tuned Swiss watch!!!

And thanks for keeping it cleaned up!

And if your tired of that CV-750, send it back. Maybe I can get it too! I'm having to wait 6 to 8 weeks before a new arrives.
