    Just broke off while I was reloading. Metal fatigue, or something, I guess! That looks like an area that might get some pressure, though.

    AB, That looks like it's cast. I'm surprised Dillion uses cast parts that get high stress and not milling them from solid bar and the hardening them. Save the pieces and they can be brazed/welded back together.

    I was really surprised it looked cast as well. I use an offset roller handle which I’m sure increases the lateral force, but that’s about the last part I would expect to break. I know I have a lot of rounds on that machine, but as good as Dillon is, I did expect more.

    The vast majority of ammo is .40, which is my flavor of choice for my sport, but it’s had a fair number of 9mm as well. Throw in the few 10,000 .38’s, .45 Colt, .45 ACP, and .44 Mag/Spcls, and the number of rounds on that 650 is pretty high.

    I'm glad dillion has a good rep for fixing stuff, because for the cost of that machine it would tick me off.
    When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.
