finally decided on which press...now..

Finally decided on a dillion 550b or maybe a 650 if I get really lucky.

I would like to find one used if I could but no luck so far.

Where did you buy your dillion ?

I bought my 650 from BrianEnos.com to take advantage of the free shipping. My other Dillon presses were purchased directly from Dillon.

I got my 550b from Brian. He is good to deal with and offered free shipping with large orders. As you probably know, his site is very informative when making a decision about which model to purchase.

Bought the 550 from Dillon. Sold it and bought the 650 from Dillon. Probably because either I did not now about Brian at the time or he wasnt in the business yet, both times.

I bought mine from Dillon 20 years ago, if you can get free shipping go for it. If you can swing it get the 650. Even if you don't get all the bells and whistles.

Unless yo uhave a FFL, Dillon or Brian, free shipping. You rarely see them used for a decent price. There is a reason for that.

I got my 650 from Brian Enos. There are a few 550bs here for sale locally for $350 with one conversion. There is a 450 going too for $250 (one conversion) which I may just snag for a later date to load bulk .308 Winchester.

As with many others, I bought my 550 from Brian. The free shipping is great but he also offers other included services. He looks over ever order to make sure you're getting what you want and only what you want. I forget exactly what my mistake was but I included a second caliber and he saw that I was ordering more than I needed and saved me money. That's why I've made my later accessories purchases through him. Good guy and good service.

Dillon charges shipping for the press. Brian doesn't, IIRC.

I bought a 550 from Brian, then a 650.

Used Dillons can go for HIGH, and are rarer than hen's teeth.

Now I have an even bigger problem, is a 650 worth it over a 550? I have talked to several that started with a 550 and then later bought a 650.
Thoughts?

A great many people buy 550s and never purchase another machine. I have heard that the 550 is purchased more than any other Dillion reloader. It is simple, affordable, and it works! Others want to have more features, and eventually upgrade to the 650. Only you can decide what your needs are.

Whichever machine you finally decide upon, I am sure you will enjoy using it.

I was contemplating the same as you a year ago, 550B or 650. In the end, the lower cost of 550B caliber conversions won me over.

Also, I usually sit down to make around 400 rounds an hour or less, so volume for me wasn't worth added cost of the 650 press.

Talk to Brian, he's definitely an authority, and as others have mentioned will only sell you what you can use. He personally talked me out of a few "accessories", and subsequently made a customer for life.

I bought my 550B from my LGS. I don't think that I'll go to a 650 any time soon.

Even if you think you want the 650 now or in the future get it now. Having own and used both presses. I would never go back to the 550.

Absolutely. I bought a 550 from brianenos.com a couple years ago and it has been great. If i could do it again, i would've bought the 650 from the start......the case feeder and auto-index is nice.

That being said, i will like having the 550 as well as a 650. The 550 is better for making multiple calibers, but if you shoot mainly one caliber (i shoot mostly .45) the 650 is much nicer IMO.
