I've seen several people with bullet feeders are using a RCBS measure that is case activated on their Dillon 750 I might give it a try if I can find a kit to upgrade my RCBS measure.

so this is something that has to be purchased as well as the Dillon?

if so, then this is already getting out of hand, price wise that is.

The new Dillon xl750 was redesigend and you can't use a powder checker and bullet feeder because of the location of the dillon powder measure. The RCBS measure will work and give you room to run both powder check and bullet feeder. I have an old RCBS measure from my single stage press that will work if I add the case activation kit. I was just asking if anyone is using the RCBS measure on their XL750 and if it works well before I spend anymore money.

and that's the thing. i am being told that i should get into reloading as well. and now i was giving it some thought. but your question, raises another red flag to me, regarding the continued costs involved in reloading, as opposed to just going out and buying new ammo.

I have a Dillon 550 for rifle ammo a 20 year old XL 650 for 45 auto a 10 year old Loadmaster for revolver cartridges plus the new XL750 for 9mm, 38 Super and 10mm and All but the new XL750 have paid for them self many times over. I figure at the rate I shoot the XL750 will have paid for it's self in about 2 years. If all you shoot is 9mm and 5.56 buy cheap factory ammo and be happy but I shoot 38 Super, 10mm, 45 auto, 44 spl, 44 mag, 44 automag and 45 Colt and that ammo isn't cheap. One more thing try to find a box of 38 Super or 44 Automag at your local range it isn't going to happen and if it did you would pay $50 a box do the math.
