Dillon 650 Casefeed Problem- .223Rem
« on: December 14, 2012, 01:47:53 am »
Got my parts from Dillon in today, so I am all set up for depriming, swaging, and loading .223Rem.

So I started with my case-prep toolhead; currently just a universal depriming die. I filled my case-feeder, with the proper small rifle shell plate and got it turning. I only had one case fall upside down, but I did run into problems with the cases getting wedged in the funnel and piling up at the top of the case feed tube. Since they're not getting down to the switch, the feeder keeps running until enough cases pile up to jam the feed plate.

Anyone seen this before? Anyone know how to fix it?

    WAY slow on the reply here.  :facepalm  But-  No, I've never had troubles with mine, and I know that I've ran on the high side of 100,000 223 cases though it.  Have you contacted Dillon?
    This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries

    Not yet. I gotta call them anyway. My powder checker quit working, too. Fresh batteries didn't fix it.

    Hay.  How do you like your machine?  I order the xl650 full package in February and received almost everything to date but am waiting on the actual 223 dies.

    I love it. Definitely crank out more handgun ammo than rifle, and it rocks at that. Never quite figured out the .223 casefeed issue, but Dillon sent me some parts that I haven't installed yet. My cousin currently has my .223 toolhead and conversion kit. I'll see if he has the same problems.
