Good luck with that, I went to Dillon a few years back and they had reloaders trhat they swore were used by the olympiac teams for reloading but they couldnt give consistant drops of the same weight of powder. trickle charge is the best way to get accurate charge.

I have a 650 (not for sale). How accurate the powder drops depend on the powder. Same as any powder measure. Ball powder, like H335, drops out of mine 95% of the time dead on. +/- 0.1 grains the other 5%. Stick powder, like Varget, is all over the place.

If I had it to do again, I would have got the 550. Much less expensive to do caliber conversions. I like the RCBS 2000 progressive also.

I have a well used 650. Sorry, not for sale as I use it almost every day :)

That's the problem with trying to find one of these used. The owners like them enough to use them, not get rid of them.

Have you checked Craigs List?

They are there for a reason.

I would never own or use a Lee or Dillion stuff.

Just not into making a bunch of so-so rounds.

I prefer each one of mine to follow the last one threw the same hole.
