They are on eBay. Keep in mind that Dillon will no longer warranty your press if using an aftermarket swageing system on a 650.

Re: Preliminary Review of Swage It swager

Think of it this way, with the shellplate EMPTY, compare the force to push the handle completely forward with the GS Swager installed compared to the force to push the handle completely forward with the Swage It installed. Is there a difference? There is no force required to push the handle forward...

Re: Preliminary Review of Swage It swager

I've swaged over 10,000 pieces of 5.56 brass, using the GS Custom swager, with good results. Somebody on another forum directed me to a different swager for the Dillon 650; I viewed a video of the swager in action on YouTube and decided to give it a try. It's the Swage It swager. The Swage It swage...

Re: Can't justify 300 BO

It would be like someone coming to me and trying to sell me on the virtues of apple pie. I don't like apple pie, there's nothing wrong with apple pie, I just happened to not be a fan of it. you could tell me that the cinnamon is fresh, the apples picked straight from the orchard and whatever else y...

Re: Made up my first rounds

Shot a small batch through the chrono and got an average of 1710.3 fps. This is the first time I've used the Win296, I originally bought 2 lbs of it for use in 44mag but ended up loading those with 4227. Today I plan to finish processing the batch of cases I cut yesterday. I cut them down, removed ...
