Dillon XL650 DVD

Hey all, I just took a living inheritance from my dad in his 15+ yr old Dillon XL 650 press and accessories. I have reloaded some on a turret lee press but my experience is quite limited (I have loaded no more than 400 rds lifetime total) and the Dillon is a bit intimidating. I was wondering if any of you out there have the video, either DVD or VHS (DVD is preferred but not mandatory) and if you would consider giving, selling or even loaning it to me. I just sent off my Dillon press to Dillon to have it refurbed and I saw the price of the DVD at 20$ and thought I would ask here and over at THR before dropping the equivalent of 100 Hornady rifle bullets on a DVD

Youtube is your friend. It's got a pretty good representation of what you would find in that DVD. (I got my 650 when the instructions still came on VHS.....)

That's better than feeling like a tube, you.

The guys are right that tons of folks who want to show off their gear have posted pretty detailed information on YouTube. Another resource that is helpful, even though it's not your brand, is Lee's collection of help videos on their site. Just going through their single-stage help videos will show you the basics of how to set up dies. The Dillon dies are a little different, but the principles of setting sizing and seating dies are the same.
