discounts at dillon?
« on: August 28, 2009, 11:22:19 AM »
I just picked up a .357 J-Frame Revolver, but I can't justify spending $100 on dies and a caliber conversion kit for my Dillon 550. 

I looked on ebay, and used parts are selling for about the same as new parts.

Does anyone know where I can get Dillon parts below MSRP?

Thank you.

Never seen it other than estate sales and Craigs list when people don't know the market.  Sometimes it goes for more than new on ebay.

Still might be worth checking brianenos.com, maybe you can save on shipping or something.

That is one of the nice things about Dillon. It is almost an investment. If you buy a Dillon and find out after a month or so, find out reloading is not for you, you can sell it for the same as you paid for it. From what I understand Brianenos has the best prices.

You don't have to send $2.50 to me either, I'm that nice......


Happy loading, Dillons are excellent machines.

I LOVE my 650, but yeah, adding a new caliber gets pricey. For me even more so, since I get the quick change setup too since I'm too lazy to go through a full setup more than once.

It is part of the process and I take the into account conversion when buying a firearm. Like it's been stated, "It's an investment". I have 12 different conversions for the 550 and my only complaint is it stretches from one end of the bench to the other. Later I'll build shelves to set the conversions on.

take care,
