    I finally got around to trying to seriously sell my old 550B. I sold it for the same price I payed for it four years ago. I did throw in a second caliber conversion set though. So it only cost me tax on the original sale and $40 or so for all the time I had it.

    Congrats! Exactly why I purchased a new 550B last yr (got a good discount too) since the used prices were so high & they always sold.

    That great Mike. I just sold my Square Deal in 45 for $10 less than retail plus a extra conversion and a spare parts kit. I actually made a few bucks on that one considering the deals and trades I had done in the last year to purchase the press and extras. I won't even hesitate when I get my next do it all press, likely a 550. I'll just buy it new from Enos. You can always resell a Dillon for at least 80% of retail.

    People on ebay will pay more for the presses than can be bought new!

    Thats pretty normal really, plus Dillon has had a couple of price increases in the last few years (like everything else really) and that just drives up the price of the used stuff as well

    I did a sim thing, sold an extra 550B to a friend for what I payed 20yrs ago, then bought a 650. They hold their value well. I oculd have sold it for a bit more on the open market, but hey, what are friends for?
     
  7. I must admit to my Scottish heritage... I recently acquired a 550 for less than 200 bucks and I have about 160 in my 450... LOL

    The sale is netting me just enough for a 223 setup for the 650 and a Star lubesizer.

    Don't forget to order a .380 case feeder adapter when you get the .223 conversion, only an extra $10. You'll then be able to load .380 AUTO with that on the .223 conversion with the 9mm funnel. You'll need dies of course. You may not need it now, but you never know when a nice .380 pocket gun like a P238 or Mustang come strolling by. :cool:
