Howlnmad: Yep. I’d be getting dies. Kinda need the dedicate powder measure to the .380 cuz it takes so little powder.

You could use the Lee Auto Drum powder measure on your 550...I have three of them on caliber conversions..one is for .380. I load .38/.357, .40 cal, 9MM,. and .45 ACP on the Dillon

Would that apply to the XL650?

Are you being sarcastic or do you really think they are superior quality?
I sure hope he was being sarcastic. Many Dillon users here that use less expensive dies. The only ones that I have heard any complaints about were Lee dies. The bodies are a little short for the thick Dillon toolhead.

I have 9mm and 45ACP Dillion dies in my rescued 650. I like how they’re made. My 380 dies are used Lee. They work ok but I figured if I get the Dillion to go with the fancy 650. I also like Hornady dies. Maybe.....
