Dillon 650 reloading

Post by WA-Tom » 23 Sep 2010, 01:58

I am taking names of those interested in a caliber conversion kit for the Dillon 650. A freind and I have made some prototype parts and will offer them soon I hope. While we are still in an R&D mode, we would like to gauge how interested folks are in this potential product. Thanks a lot!

I'd be in for one, even though I don't have a 650 yet.

Hope it works out for you. I had a lot of commitment until I opened up order taking for them. There is a lot more time(money) and money involved in developing and producing a plate then most people recognize.

Yeah my buddies got the program done and ready to go, I have one prototype for testing ready. It needs some minor modifications and I produced some custom locater buttons and some parts for the case feeder. More work to go, but I should have a working test bed in a couple weeks. I know how it is, sometimes it takes a long time to sell a product even after many people said they want this item. It took almost 3 years to sell 50 of my 607 buttstocks even after advertising and contacting interested parties. I am going to make these, how long I sit on them is another story. I might make a batch of 50 kits and see how it goes. This is not going to be a flagship product for my freinds company, just a sideline.

I would also be interested providing you can figure out a way for all of the 650 functions/stages to work consistently and with a high degree of accuracy. I am currently using a 550 but would love to have the case feeder and auto index features of the 650.

The case feeder tray would likely be a seperate item. Right now we are working on the caliber conversion parts as Dillon sells in one kit. I feel pretty comfortable with what we have on the test machine. We just need two things, one is a list of people who want info, the other is to get the parts we have contracted out to complete their duties. Hoping to have a completed product by the 1st of the year or around Christmas time.

I emailed Dillon yesterday to see when they would be coming out with 5.7x28 caliber conversion kits and dies for the 550B press. See the reply I received today.

It's not easy and for the 650 even harder then the 550. For starter 650 folkes would want to be able to use their case feeders and the changes needed for Dillon to their units would not be cost effective.

I have been looking at making a purchase of a 650 dillion so I would also have interest in any items you have plans on making for the 5.7 accessories for specifically the 650.

I would be interested as well. Love my 650 but have actually been considering buying another press to reload 5.7s. A 650 shell plate would save considerable real estate on my reloading bench...please keep me posted of your progress!

I questioned Dillion and got the same answer. I'm in for a conversion kit if you get one that works.
