This is how I reload my own ammo and SAVE A TON OF MONEY. Very cool hobby to do during the winter months. You can make specialized rounds that you can not buy. DILLON 650

    No, I have never had a pistol case get stuck.

    But I jammed more than a few rifle rounds before I found one shot. I have never had one get stuck after that. 1000’s of rounds later.

    Iv’e been using the Dillon case lube, but will look into the one shot. I’m still new at this and am ALWAYS open to new methods.
    Do you do the same with the 45?

  3. Yankeeprepper | March 9, 2010 at 3:15 am |

    I can tell you how to avoid that the shell casing getting stuck.

    Buy one can of ONE SHOT case lube. 6 bucks and will last a couple years. Pour your casings in a bucket and spray then mix with a stick and repeat. You won’t have nay problems with the casings then.

  4. Sure love my 650, I’m only loading 308 at this time, 45 is next. I have however had some issues with the occasional case getting stuck in the die and ripped out of the shellplate. (UGHHH) One of those is almost enough! So I decided to go with a single stage press for the sizing & decapping and of course using the 650 for everything else. Purchased a Lee Breech-Lock and haven’t looked back since! It can even handle once fired LC like nothing!
    I’ll post a vid on my set-up.
    Nice set-up!! 5/5

    You reload rifle ammo the same way. Different components.

  7. clevmartin | March 9, 2010 at 4:46 am |

    Could I talk you into making a video of you loading rifle ammo???

  8. Yankeeprepper | March 9, 2010 at 5:05 am |

    No. In fact, I feel like I can make as good or better round than I can buy.

  9. clevmartin | March 9, 2010 at 5:49 am |

    Great videos bro. I have been researching diffrent brands of presses for about a month. This video was perfect. I cant make my mind up on a Progressive, Turret, or a Single. In my AR I really want precision ammo. Do you feel as if you give up any precision for speed using a Progressive?

    Thanks bro.

    well in a shtf type of environment I don’t think it’s hard to imagine that there will be gangs of thugs going house to house stealing peoples supplies. On the history ch they said in that type of situation you will want to throw trash all over and make your house look like it’s all ready been looted. Theoriginaljoebloggs you have made good points about practice. Smittysmth02gt you also have made a good argument and I am thinking more as you arrogance could get one killed.

  12. TheOriginalJoeBloggs | March 9, 2010 at 7:42 am |

    Well Ok then – peace!

  13. smttysmth02gt | March 9, 2010 at 8:02 am |

    Sorry. My comment wasn’t about “thugs” moreso than trained opposition.

  14. TheOriginalJoeBloggs | March 9, 2010 at 8:38 am |

    Umm eight armed thugs are going to give a shit?? I suppose I should have said I was originally commenting on @bluediamond2077’s comment 😀

  15. smttysmth02gt | March 9, 2010 at 9:29 am |

    Aside from moral reasons, arrogance could possibly get you killed in said situation.

  16. TheOriginalJoeBloggs | March 9, 2010 at 10:01 am |

    Hence my suggestion !! Nothing more! why be humble?

  17. smttysmth02gt | March 9, 2010 at 10:35 am |

    I didn’t mean don’t practice. What I meant was, most people buy their guns and ammo and think that’s all there is to it. Tac competitions and training are no joke. Not only to shoot, but physically challenging as well.

  18. TheOriginalJoeBloggs | March 9, 2010 at 10:37 am |

    Now now !! Practice makes perfect as they say . . or as they say in Germany “UEbung macht der Meister”

  19. smttysmth02gt | March 9, 2010 at 11:36 am |

    I don’t think reloading is “only for shtf”. For example, if you shoot guns period and like to save money…there ya go. Or if you plan on storing ammo in multiple locations…there ya go. Or if you are making it for your family…there ya go. The list goes on and on for why people reload.

  20. smttysmth02gt | March 9, 2010 at 12:12 pm |

    Or, knock you back down to a more humble and realistic level. 🙂

  21. TheOriginalJoeBloggs | March 9, 2010 at 1:07 pm |

    Get down the ranges and practice taking eight targets out as quickly as possible, that will build up your confidence….

  22. Yankeeprepper | March 9, 2010 at 1:18 pm |

    You simply asked me why would you ever “need more than that?” And I answered.

  23. bluediamond2077 | March 9, 2010 at 2:09 pm |

    you have a better set up then me and are in a better spot in the country to defend. I’m in a Apartment and lack friends that share the same feelings on defense . Most of my buddies thought I lost my mind buying a AR-15. Yankee I do inspire to have a set like you have one day. It’s great man. Your well prepared and could supply many friends and family that share your values with Ammo.

  24. bluediamond2077 | March 9, 2010 at 2:36 pm |

    How many people are you planing on having a firefight with? My idea is going to be stay low and out of sight so I won’t have to fire a shot. If I ever get in a spot were I’m in a all out war zone I’ll prob be dead before I get to 700 rounds maybe i’ll take down one or two of them. I’m not going to lie to my self and say I’m Rambo and am going to be able to fend off a gang of 8 thugs holding Ak47s . I’ll just be 2 far out numbered.

    Reloading looks like it would be a fun hobby. I’m kind of a buy more than you’ld use and stock up the surplus type of guy and it has worked for me as far as building a good supply, but then if TSHTF you can’t go to the store and buy more right? So it would be a very good idea even to get an entry level reloader and supplies! Good vid!
