    Been thinking about buying a "BLUE" press to reload my 9mm, 45 ACP and 223's. Probably the 550 version.

    Where do you all recommend looking at to buy from? Who has good prices and inventory?

    Also, what else do I need to switch from one caliber to another?

    Everyone sells Dillon for the same price. There are NO product discounts.

    Hardly anyone stocks Dillon, they all ship from Dillon.

    However, Brian Enos ships for free. There's your discount.

    Actually Brian's page lists a shipping charge based on total sale price, Grafs is a flat 4.95 and lets you pick fedex or UPS ground.

    Graf's gives a discount if you have a C&R license. They also have a flat shipping rate of $5 doesn't matter what it is..

    The grafs CR discount is pretty good. Tell me what you want and I'll tell you the grafs discount price.

    rfwobbly - Sorry, but shipping from Brian Enos is not free.
    I've bought 5 caliber conversions over the last year from him.
    And paid shipping every time.

    But it is cheaper than shipping direct from Dillon.

    Well, free shipping from Brian Enos if purchase is more than $400. So, essentially free shipping for any press/kit/extras. :D

    The dealer discount at Graf's is good. But sometimes I find it's better to pay their retail price and take the flat rate shipping. Dealers pay actual shipping cost. There's also a 3% upcharge for credit card orders.

    But even with the upcharge and shipping, Graf's has gotten most of my reloading money over the last several years.
