    Noticed that my old Dillon Square Deal was not fully seating small pistol primers in 9mm. During the priming stroke, the case would rock about 15 to 20 degrees in the shell plate. Dillon said the older shell plates were soft and they sent a new plate. Fixed the problem just fine. My point being that even with many shutdowns, they are still servicing their customers. What a great outfit.
    Additionally I think the Square Deal is under rated. For pistol only it really does a great job. I have one dedicated to 9mm and one to 45ACP, with conversation kits for 38/357 and 44 special/mag. (550B does the rest.)

    That's great to hear. The Dillon CS is legendary.

    The RCBS guys are not in the office, but the spring snapped on a case activated powder measure linkage. An inquiry to online CS got me a replacement in my mailbox 3 days later. This was last week.

    Just got this month's "Blue Press" in the mailbox today. Hope they stay safe and busy.

    I notice they no longer publish readers letters.

    Hmm..you made me do a quick thumb through it, and I think you're right. But most of those letters were pretty much preaching to the choir anyway. I do like the large format they started last year.

    The cover on last month's issue made me feel like a child molester though. Not really in good taste for me to have that laying on the coffee table.

    I don't really remember last months cover, I might have to see if I still have it. Better news is, Kathy's back and still looking fine!!

    I need to buy something again from Dillon so they'll get me back on the Blue Press circulation.

    I just bought a Dillon 9x25 die set from Grafs since they were a few bucks less. Second guessing that...

    I ordered Dillon stuff (not a press) from Enos several years ago because he was cheaper, and ended up on the BP mailing list.
