Now its Time to Start Loading

Station Orientation and Loading Functions

Add some empty cases to your casefeeder and turn the unit "on". The motor will run until the clear casefeed tube fills and then it will automatically shut off.

The reloading process on an XL 650 begins with one complete stroke or cycle of the handle, which causes the first case to be cycled through the casefeed system and fed into the shellplate.

Station One

The first case is at station one of the machine and a new primer is ready at station 2. Move the handle down, the sizing die reforms and also deprimes the first case. Return the handle to its rest position. Using a smooth, fluid motion, move the handle up to its full aft stop to seat the new primer into the case and release the handle. At the same time, another case has been fed into the shellplate.

Station Two

Again, cycle the handle completely. The first case now gets a charge of powder, the second case is resized and deprimed, then they both advance to the next stations. Using a smooth, fluid motion, move the handle up to its full aft stop to seat the new primer into the case. Return the handle to its rest position. Now three cases are in the shellplate.

Station Three

Cycle the handle. The first case enters the powder checker, the second case is charged with powder and the third case is resized and deprimed. Again, return the handle to its rest position and all the cases advance to their next stations and the fourth case is inserted into the shellplate.

Station Four

It is now time to begin placing a bullet on the case at station four. Cycle the handle down and then back up to its rest position. The first case now has a bullet seated into it and has advanced to station five. At this point the shellplate is full.

Seat a primer into a case at the full aft stroke of the handle and a case is inserted into the shellplate automatically.

Station Five

Using your left hand, place a bullet on the case at station four. Cycle the handle and the first case is crimped at station five and then ejected out at the right rear of the machine into the collection bin. Repeat the process by placing a bullet into the case at station four and seating the primer into the case at station two.

At this point a completed round is ejected from the machine with every complete stroke of the handle.

When operating the handle, pay close attention to the cases, noting the changes that take place as they go through the machine.

Pace yourself when operating the machine. Do not crash the handle down against its stop and do not snatch the handle upward. It should take two or more seconds to move the handle from its rest position, down and then back up to its rest position.
