    I had been putting off ordering some things for a couple of months, out of concern of delays and no need for me to add to the problem.

    I submitted an order a month ago and have already received the dies. The rest is en route.

    Seems like the big stuff is still at 4 weeks, but it's not getting any worse, so I think the worst is over, we're just seeing the tail end. Once they catch up, things should start settling down.

    In case anyone is looking for a Super Swage 600...Graf and Sons has them in stock and is only 3-4 weeks out.

    Everything came in March 30th except the dies. I ordered a sizing die and a bullet seat and crimp die from ebay at "normal" prices and got them in today. Made a dozen rounds to test and I'm pretty excited. I still want those Dillon dies tho...

    **Dillon Sighting**

    I was at Sheels in Springfield IL yesterday and was surprised over the amount of Dillon stuff they had in stock. 550, 650, case feelers for either, good assortment of conversion kits, die sets, etc. Nice to see and I just had to add a Dillon tumbler to my collection.

    What all are you lacking so you can get started loading?

    Not missing anything now - thanks for asking. I can load on my single stage while waiting for the rest of the Dillon.

    No such luck here - it just shows up a little at a time.

    Still no 9mm dies. Not in a bind or anything but it is taking awhile.

    Same here. Initial order was 3/9. One box was scale,lube,and polish.Another box was case gage and primer tray. Only things left are the main ones. 550B and .40 cal dies. I never got any shipping emails. Only way I knew things were in the mail was charges in checking account.
    Hopefully,I'll have everything this time next month.:)

    I have to praise Dillon Precision once again. I ordered repair parts about 3 weeks ago and they came in the mail today. Not only did I get what I needed for repair, they sent a complete new priming system for me to try out as well. I am another truly satisfied Dillon customer. Excellent customer service and support.

    I placed a small order for 550 toolheads, a toolhead stand and a powder die March 27 and it showed shipping as of yesterday (4/9). Unfortunately now I have to order again since I acquired a new caliber in the meantime!:cuss:

    I just decided to make the jump from single stage to progressive with an XL650, by the time I save up for it they should be caught up on the backlog.

    Posted from my car phone.

    I have been parting out and selling off bits of my Hornady LnL AP to finance my migration to my Dillon 650. I ordered the .40 caliber conversion yesterday along with 3 tool heads and 3 stands. That will take care of .40, 357 Sig, and 10MM. I still need a .380 caliber conversion (but its low on my list), and a .44 conversion as well as 5 or 6 tool heads and as many stands, last thing will be a dillon powder check die for each.
