    Back when I started reloading a few years ago I really could have used a nice concise "how-to" video to get me going. Never did see one, although there is one set of vids out there, I thought I could do it a little bit better... or at least faster. So I threw this together. If I missed anything (I noticed a couple little things) let me know!

    I'm going to check these out when I get to work tomorrow.

    I can't watch youtube on dialup. Too much wait.

    What are the themes of the videos, pistol? rifle?

    good job

    I don't own a dillon but you've done a good job covering the fundamentals of reloading.

    thanks for your efforts.

    wworker, the themes are basically what you need to get started, setting up a progressive press (a dillon in this case) and loading up some .45ACP.

    Just watched all 5 nice work, you may want to beef up your bench seems to flex a bit. Glad to see someone do this i have seen the ones on the lee stuff but you did a great job for the dillon newbies. Its also nice to se how others use the same tools gives me some ideas for myself thanks.:cool:

    jamz, that's just what I need as I put my Dillon together today.

    I don't have the dies yet, but hope to rectify that next Saturday at the next gunshow.

    Jamz, nice job! I watched all 5. I don't have a progressive press yet, I'm just using a single stage Redding Big Boss II for precision rifle hand loads at the moment. I will be getting into progressive reloading for .45 ACP, and some other handgun loads at some point in the future, and Ill probably go with a Dillon as they seem to be the most commonly recommended progressive press.

    Thanks for taking the time to clearly demonstrate setting up and using the 550! I'll watch them again when I get one and am setting it up.

    Ooops...A "chronometer" is a clock for telling time. A "chronograph" is for measuring velocity (fps) over a known (usually 24") distance...

    Very good! Could you do one for a Hornady LNL AP too?

    Whoops, nice catch Bushmaster, thanks! :)

    Otto, if someone wants to lend me a lock n load I'd love to, but I don't own one sadly, so I can't.

    Thanks, they're very good!

    I'm still waiting for someone to do this, but with a Square Deal B. We've got two fine instructive videos for the 550 already!

    Very informative for a newbie like myself.
    I am currently reading the ABC's of Reloading and the 48th edition of Lymans
    Reloading.
    I will then make a decision on what type of press I will start with and components used.
    I hope to have some assisstance when the time is right.
    So far you guys have been very helpful. Thanks.

    jamz, I watched all of the videos and found them helpful as I am a new reloader to be when I get my dies.

    I didn't see you lubing the cases. Is that because you have carbide lined dies?

    Hi wworker, they are carbide dies, and thus don't need lubing. I do lube rifle cases, as there is so much more surface area and friction.

    I still use Dillion spray lube with carbide dies. Makes for smoother operation.

    I was hoping it was for the LNL at first read. :D That would be some awesome addition to these vids.

    Great Dillon videos!

    I dont have a Dillon, But I do know how difficult and time consuming these videos are to make.

    Almost makes me want to get a 550 to try it out.

    Great job!!!!
