    They still sell the Square Deal "B" for $379.95 looks similar to yours. You must use Dillions dies for this press, unlike the all the other Dillions that use the 7/8" x 14 dies.

    but they claim you can run 350 rounds per hour on that machine.

    You will never find an awesome deal on a Dillon unless somebody has no idea what they have.One reason is that you can take an old Dillon that looks beat up and has parts missing and send into Dillon for a complete refurnbishing for free.AFAIK I think Dillon accepts tradeins at 75% purchase price.

    It's a Square Deal all right.

    I have two. One set up for large primers and one for small. I'm not that lazy that I can't switch one machine from large to small, but the second one cost me next to nothing on a trade.

    At $379 for a new one vs $300 for a used one? Buy yourself a new one.

    if by 3 dies you mean 3 complete calibers, alll small pistol; 9mm, 38/357 and perhaps 32 or 40?

    each complete die change today is about $120.
    $300 with one caliber is not a bargin unless there is the eliminator scale with it.
    with 3 complete die sets....you do the math

    Looks just like my Dillon Square Deal B.


    Like Duke says, the only time you can usually get a "deal" on Dillon presses is if someone does not know what he has.

    Each die set contains 3 pieces (carbide size die, seat die, and a crimp die) for each caliber. Huge difference if the press comes with 3 dies (one caliber) or 3 caliber conversion sets. $300 for a used $380 Dillon is not a "great" deal, but it is probably a common price for a Dillon. Only problem is that the Square Deal B will reload pistol calibers only.

    Since Dillon will repair/refurbish any press at no charge, there is really no depreciation on the equipment. I had some parts get lost during one of my moves, and Dillon replaced the parts the movers lost, at no charge.

    Yes, I'm sold on Dillon.

    Yeah, sounds like its not that great of a deal.

    I guess i'm back to looking and reading, not been fully convinced to get a single stage press again.

    the lee loadmaster is temping to try, but being as im in a room of dillion guys im sure ya'll think thats stupid.

    Not stupid (well maybe a little) Get yourself a Dillon 550 go to loading a bunch of ammo and don't look back. Buy the right thing the first time and be done with it for life.

    Offer them $225 to 250. for it, that would be worth it for that price. And no matter what you would have Dillon No BS warranty and they will take care of anything and everything if needed...
