I use a Dillon 1050 and a 650. The 1050 I use for 223 and 223AI rifle and all the pistol ammo. I have no problem getting ammo that groups in the .2's out of my 223s. The 650 I use for 308,300WM, 300RUM, and 375 H&H and am able to get better than 1/2 moa ammo. So, I don't see that the accuracy of ammo assembled with the Dillons is sup par. I also use an RCBS rockchucker when I load small lots to do load developement. After I find the load quantity loading is done on the Dillons.
All that said, if you're not going to load a lot of ammo at one time the Dillons aren't what you want.

Thanks guys!
You're right, the guys that were recommending the Dillon reload for volume more then accuracy. While I plan on reloading some handgun rounds, I don't plan on shooting a few hundred rounds every weekend. It sounds like a rcbs is what I am looking for. I really appreciate everyone taking the time and sharing on your experience.

Get a redding t7. As accurate as my rockchucker but you don't have to echange dies constantly.

I second the use of the Redding T-7 reloader. I normally leve mine setup with one to two die sets installed. Hard to beat for the price.

i have a redding t7 i also have a dillon 550 i like both very much. If i want to load 10 or less i always choose the redding if i'm going to reload 20 or more i use the dillon.

The dillon doesn't have to be used with the auto powder system. When used with the auto powder system my groups do not suffer any, but it works better with a ball powder or short cut powder.
