Dillon Super Swage 600 or RCBS 9474 tool?

Recommended Posts

Any reason to choose one over the other? I have both RCBS and Dillon equipment. I have never had to deal with RCBS on returns/warranty/repairs, but have with Dillon and they were stellar. Truly no BS. For that reason alone I would buy the Dillon even though it's a little more costly.

Anyone with real use input on the subject? Thanks!

I have to order parts from RCBS and had excellent service. And the kicker....NO charge. Not even for shipping. It was for de-priming pins and they even sent extras.

I hear nothing but good about their service too, so it's a draw as near as I can tell with respects to customer service. With out having both tools in front of me it's hard to decide.

Just tagging in to see what you decide.

I'm still running the same Dillon 550 and  Dillon FL 2000 vibratory case unit for going on 32 years now. Dillon is simply phenomenal in both quality products and customer service. I have a box of spare parts for my 550...free from Dillon over the years and they even rebuilt my 550 to like new around 5 years ago. They always refused payment and a quick e-mails had parts for free within a few days. I did pay shipping to Dillon when I sent my press to them...they paid the return.

I "like" RCBS.

I "love" me some Dillon! 👍

I own the RCBS one. I get the feeling from reading reviews that the Dillon may be better. Both are gonna give great support.

My decision was the Dillon, for exactly the above. Will be here Friday.

      I'm gonna try to get certified for the long range (200-600 yards) at my gun club. The problem is that until I do, I can only use the 100 yard range.  So all I can really do is try to work up some real good loads for this rifle at 100 and hope they'll get the job done. Anybody got some good, tried and true 7.62X51 long range loads?

      Guys, I inherited an older Dillon 650 press when my brother passed away 3 years ago. Is there anyone around the Murfreesboro area that would be willing to help with this thing? I had it set up for 45acp but my rounds where weak and had unspent power. Also I need help with 223 as we have had feeding issues. I would be willing to pay someone that knows how to operate this thing to help me get started. I have so many supplies I hate to not use the thing. Thanks guys

      I found a really good supplier of fully prepped .223 / 5.56 MM rifle brass. This stuff is priced good. And is delivered, (free shipping), via. USPS Priority Mail in just a few days. And it comes ready to load. Fully cleaned inside and out, by wet tumbling in Stainless Steel pins. Fully trimmed, resized, with the primer pockets swaged. All that's left is to run it through the Dillon.
      All I did additional was to chamfer the case mouths with a VLD Chamfer Tool on my RCBS Case Prep Center to allow easier bullet seating. The primers seat beautifully in these cases, with just the right amount of pressure. All to the proper depth. And none stand proud. You can't beat the price. I bought 2,500 rounds for just $179.00. (It's $10.00 more now, and they're showing, "out of stock" at the moment. But they resupply fast. I'm going to order more as soon as they get more in. I load this stuff by the 30 pound bowl full, with the bulk 6,000 round boxed, Hornady 55 Gr. FMJ Boat Tail. With Hogdon CFE 223 Powder. That stuff burns clean and accurate. But more importantly, it flows through a Dillon powder measure like water. From there it goes into .50 Cal ammo cans.
      This ammo runs perfectly in all of my AR's. And it delivers MOA groups in calm conditions, in both my CZ-527 and Marlin X-7 bolt guns. For this price it just doesn't pay to buy non prepped brass any more. Resizing and prepping brass is the biggest PITA in reloading. This stuff makes your time at the reloading bench much more productive. All of the loaded rounds gage properly in my Dillon Case Gauge. And they chamber effortlessly.
