    All: I love my Dillon Super 1050 press, now that I think I have it mostly figured out and properly adjusted.

    Right now I am using a RCBS full length, non Xdie, sizer in 223. Works well enough, but the lock ring is maybe grasping one thread or so locking it into the press.

    I have been thinking of an X die in this application, and I wonder whether it has the same outer dimensions as the standard 223 die, or whether there might be a little bit more threaded portion so that the lock ring will grasp at more threads?

    Anybody have any experience with this?

    I could purchase a die from Dillon, and I may end up doing this, but the X die is what I have my heart set upon.

    Thanks

    The Dillon carbide size die for the .223 is the slickest die I’ve used for sizing any bottle neck cartridges. FWIW In the past, when I ran into the problem of not enough threads for a jam nut on the top, I just put the jam nut underneath.

    Same here. Holds it just as well although I don't have the Dillon die for 223. $$$

    If you’ve already forked out $1500+ for a reloading machine, if you say it real fast, the extra $100 doesn’t sound like much.
    Also, if your hands are prone to cramping up while loading you might take a look at the Kiss bullet feeder, it makes reloading effortless.

    i've only ever run the dillon die (for 223) in my 1050. been thinking about an x-die though as trimming is hella annoying. please let us know what you find out.

    jmorris, got a link for the kiss feeder?

    Only paid $850 for mine :D. Had it for a while. Lifetime warranty. Confuses the guys a Dillon if I need things fixed.
    The KISS system is real nice. Maybe someday.

    Actually mine is just a 1050. When I bought mine that's what the offered. I think little did they know that professional reloader's would run millions of rounds thru them. Dillon still stands behind it.

    http://bulletfeeder.com/ is the link to the KISS feeder. It takes place of the powder check die so I only use it for .223. I use the GSI feeder with a kiss style collator for pistol rounds as it allows the use of the powder check die.
