Another Dillon fan. Used to have 5 of them but now down to 2. A 1050 and 550B. Like others here, I have loaded on others. Loved the Star for but the 1050 is better IMHO. If you are only loading the one pistol caliber, the 1050 is a great choice. It has enough stations that a powder checker can be added (as with the 650 as well) but the 1050…[Read more]
Totally agree that if you want to find a truly accurate load, 10 shots are needed. I start with 5 shot groups to save time, money and wear & tear on the gun and me. If the 5 shot group looks bad, the load is rejected. If it looks good then at least one ten shot group. That much shooting is a chore for some (hard to focus for that length of…[Read more]

If you want to throw some reloading things in a bag and put that bag in your vehicle then do what you think is right for you. But if you have to abandon your vehicle your reloading bag is a poor choice to take with you. Once on foot, you need other things that are far more important than the ability to make ammunition.
