Differences beween the XL750 and the XL650

Many current and potential customers are asking about the differences between Dillon's XL650 and the nw XL750.
The XL750 has a simplified linear priming system. It only requires the removal of two nuts to detach and change sizes on the primer feed system. Like the XL650, the 750 deprimes in station 1 and primes in station 2, minimizing any chance that spent primer residue could interfere with priming.
The shellplate indexing mechanism has been completely redesigned, so the shellplate turns more smoothly, decreasing cases wobble. The index pawl has been relocated on the ring indexer and the spring direction reversed. This makes it more difficult to accidently break the ring indexer. The index block now has a roller, which also smoothes out indexing.
Additionally, the index block incorporates a spring-loaded overtravel stop, which significantly increases the life of springs on the machine.
All caliber conversion kits, toolheads and most parts interchange freely between the XL750 and the XL650. Parts that are unique to the XL650 will remain in full production.

Is there any option to upgrade a 650 to a 750, reusing the strong mount, roller handle, case feeder and tray?

RE: Differences beween the XL750 and the XL650

Wow. I just bought a 650 after doing all my research, watching a ton of videos, And getting a demo from a friend on how it works. I am still building my reloading room only to find out my machine is obsolete. I have 3k worth of stuff still in boxes! All never even opened. Dont have time to do research right now as im on the road again but i sure would like to know if all my 650 stuff will work on a 750 and how much its gonna cost me to upgrade to this newer primer system.

The XL650 cannot be updated into an XL750. The design change to the primer feed, and the necessary machining changes to the frame preclude this. We will be offering the new style index block, with the roller and overtravel stop, for the XL650.
We will be offering a very stripped version of the XL750 in a few months, that does not include a conversion kit, toolhead, powder measure, handle, and case feed post, so if you want to use much of your XL650 components, you aren't paying for duplicates.
The XL750 and XL650 have identical frame mounting holes, so no redrilling or new strong mount is needed.

Does the 750 prime on the forward stroke like the 650 or did the make it like the 1050 and eliminate that?

You push the handle forward at the end of the handle upstroke to seat the primer, same as the XL650.

Will Dillon be offering trade in value towards the 750. If so how much?
Like a previous 650 owner I have a 650 also and have had nothing but issues with the priming system and have spent a lot of time and money trying to resolve it to no avail. Now to find out that it was a factory issue or you would no have come out with the 750. I love my 550 and Dillon has been good about helping when I call. I’d just like something that works.

Unless your XL650 was purchased within the last 30 days, there is no trade in program. The XL650 priming system is extremely reliable. The new design the XL750 uses greatly simplifies and speeds up changing primer sizes, something not said about the XL650 priming system.
If you are not able to resolve priming problems on your 650, the next step is to contact us for a return authorization, then box it up and send it to us. Your XL650 still has a lifetime warranty.

RE: Differences beween the XL750 and the XL650

How does the primer pocket crimp removal work on the 750? Can this feature be added to the 650? I’ve had my 650 for years, have loaded tens of thousands of rounds and love it. I’ve had zero issues - thank you for such a well-designed, high quality product. My only complaint is the inability to remove a primer crimp...

The XL750 does not remove the crimp from the primer pocket. You have to go up to the Super 1050 or upcoming RL1100 to have this feature.
