    Reloading with Dillon’s Big Fifty is EASY as 1-2-3-4-5!

    Most shooters realize that reloading is the most economical way to enjoy shooting their .50 BMG firearms, but many shooters are unaware of just how simple it is to reload. In fact, Dillon’s BFR 50 is one of the simplest reloading machines to learn to operate. The BFR enables you to complete all of the steps in the reloading process – one step at a time – without having to change (and then re-adjust) dies for each operation like you must with an old-fashioned single-station press. Skeptical? Follow this simple loading process: 

    Place an empty cartridge case into the BFR’s shellplate at Station One. Set a primer into the primer seating die in the top of station two. Lower the operating handle. The BFR will resize and deprime the case.
    Remove the sized, deprimed case from the shellplate, and insert it into the primer seating die in the top of station two. Lower the operating handle. The BFR will prime the case.

    Remove the primed case from the primer seating die, return it to the shellplate at station two, then rotate the shellplate by hand to station three.
    At Station Three, pull the handle down, then dispense your powder charge into the case. Raise the operating handle and advance the shellplate.
    At Station four, place a bullet on the powder-charged cartridge case and lower the operating handle. This will seat the bullet into the case. (NOTE: with some manufacturers die sets, it may crimp the bullet in place as well.) Raise the operating handle and advance the shellplate. Remove the loaded cartridge.

    Repeat steps 1 - 5 to crank out more ammo. Sound easy? You bet it is!

    Due to unprecedented demand, we are not accepting backorders on out of stock magazines, bullets, brass and some other items.    Our future cost and delivery are uncertain at this point.  If you see an item that displays "Out of Stock" that means we hope to get it back in stock but do not allow backorders.  Items that say "backorder" means the item IS expected back in stock and you may backorder it.  



    Dillon Precision has added a second domestic carbide supplier. Their job is to make large quantities of a single caliber handgun carbide insert. They are finishing 45ACP now and beginning 38/357. After they finish those calibers, the next two they will make are 10mm/40 S&W and 380ACP. Our primary carbide supplier is currently concentrating on 300 Blackout and 223 Remington. They are also making small quantities of handgun carbide in the calibers not coming from our new supplier. The dates below are our current estimate for delivery, based on recent delivery history and knowledge of what we expect to be delivered and when we expect to receive it.
