Got my new to me Dillon SDB setup and mounted. It’s my first reloader. I used a friends Hornsdy a long time ago, but he already had it all setup.
Been familiarizing myself with it by cleaning and adjusting. I got through flaring, seating, and crimping. Made 5 demo rounds without primers or powder. They all passed the case gauge test and they cycled through 3 different firearms without a hitch. The OAL spread was most between 1.131 to 1.135 with one that was 1.141. I’m thinking that’s ok since I was using mixed cases.
The press was also missing locator pins so I can only do one thing at a time. The previous owner is sending them so I’ll have to wait a few more days.
Next up - primers and powder.
Made 25 rounds last night with 5 different combinations of powders and lengths. Shot them through 3 different firearms. Had one FTF.
Made 100 rounds this morning from the best combination I had last night. Target posted is from last 25 rounds out of that batch at 7 yards with a Glock 17.
Excited to make some more as soon as it cools off in my garage. Still hot here in FL.
