I just placed an order with Brian for a new Dillon 550, loaded.

Brian is a great guy and I enjoyed talking to him. Brian was a great help in figuring what I need and his website is chock full of valuable information. I encourage you to visit his site.

Brian is so cool that he agreed to be one of our special guests in "The Bunker", moderating a Q&A session in July, allowing guys to ask the types of questions they would ask when they have access to a shooting legend for 30 minutes or so.

I am looking forward to making some poofy loads. Wish me luck!

+1 on that group buy! I am looking to buy one of these (or the Hornady LnL AP) very soon. I think a group buy would push me over the edge in a heartbeat!

One-eyed Their was one guy braking the rules of Dillon.He is no longer a dealer. Brian is a great guy and you will save a few bucks in shipping and even though it is shipped factory direct He has pull for faster delivery 8)
I searched high and low to find a deal but even Dillon items on ebay bring more than new :shock:

I call a buddy of mine's "mouse farts", of course that's throwing a 180gr .40 at about 700fps, its like shooting a gun with a comp!

What could you do with 147gr bullets to make them mousefarts? Last time did a chrono on factory 147s, they were around 930, give or take. Given the PF floor of 125, 855fps is your sweet number. Would that 80fps difference really cause that less of a muzzle flip?

I primarily shoot paper, however the steel will fall too. The value is the reduced recoil, hence the reason why the require a minimum power factor.

In my experience, yes. It is night and day in comparison to 9mm WWB. My Armscor loads are not bad at all, and I enjoy them a lot. I still want to fine-tune a round that is best for me and my XD.

Given an inch extra barrel, you can probably go just a tad bit lower than i could with 4", yes?

I'm going to see if my buddy will make me up a box of mouse farts to try before I get into this reloading bit. I have six cases of 147 WWB to use first though :(
