I've loaded thousands of 223's on my 550 with BL-C2. Pretty often I'll resize, trim, tumble and reprime and then hit the Dillon. Partly because so many 223 cases have crimped primers now.

I use my Hornady LNL AP for handgun still use Hornady single stage with RCBS charge master for dropping powder for all rifle loading. The single stage fast enough as accuracy takes priority. What slows down rifle is all the case prep and lube & un-lube case in tumbler and oh need a primer too, then bevel the case mouth speed it up on progressive press. What I'm I missing ?

Another Dillon 550 user. Like some I generally resize before starting on the Dillon but there’s really no reason you couldn’t use the Dillon for everything. Ball powder works extremely well. I know Dillon has done tests with their powder measures and they are as accurate or more than all other measures. Plus to me if you are into high volume loading a .1 of a grain here and there is not going to be a problem. The Dillon puts out a nice round at the end.

When I need larger quantities of 223 I'll run them out on the Dillon. I always de-prime and wash the cases in a separate operation using a single stage press. I use a worlds cheapest trimmer to trim, then I debur and inspect. I hate depriming on the Dillona as that grit from spent primer gets into everything. If I only need 40-50 I just run them out on the single stage. Heck I've been retired for over 10 years and the last 4 I've barely fired a round because I've been so busy. Well I got stuff off my back and I don't care if there is covid or no covid come 2021.

Two 550s and a 650here. the 650 with a case feeder is the cats pjamas. Sometimes I just se it up to deprime,size and trim with power trimmer. Can knock out a thousand in a hurry . Then follow with prime,powder,bullet.

223 is the only thing I load on my Dillon 550. 24.5 grains of W748, CCI primers and a 55 grain pill of your choice. I can load about 400 rounds an hour, and keep things right. Up until last year, all I used was a Rockchucker. Should have bought a 550 years ago!

If I were buying a progressive loader today (and I might) it would be a Dillon XL 750.
