He has made many contributions.

I hope his legacy can be passed down through the generations like my presses will.

His contributions allow people who otherwise couldn't afford to shoot to be able to put many rounds down range. In this rape em on cost society we have become. The manufacturers holding back production to drive costs up by not supplying demand.
Mr. Dillon got. A fair price for his machines and his equipment and never bent anyone over to my knowledge. You will not find someone who didn't get their press fixed or replaced even after decades of use. That shows his integrity and his ambitions to allow others to benefit from his inventions and improvements.

He was a great contributor to many generations and modern day reloading would not be the same without the mark He made.

MAYBE THIS WILL GET YOUR ATTENTION (for some the girls for others the mini) 

I'd like it mounted in a Toyota Sequoia (Even my PaPa would roll over in his grave)...(He made me park a Honda in the street one time He said never in His driveway.) In his defense he worked when he got Back from WWII for Willis Jeep Overland in Toledo for 45 years!!! 

The Mini-Gun gentlemen.... Someone who knows how please upload the video to this it will be well received...

Where does this end? Does America need machine gun toting police in the streets? Every country that has went down this path all the while restricting it's citizens the same, always ends badly.

Also, no doubt Dillon makes nice tools. Probably a great company as well. Not sure about the contribution to modern reloading. Richard Lee comes to mind. For what Dillon gets for their stuff, they can afford to warranty it.
Guys, we are getting to the age that these great and iconic men are passing. They will all be gone in the next decade. Hard to believe as they have been here all our lives.
The question is, will we pick up the torch? Will we carry on their life's work? Can we fill their shoes and March into the future with their great vision?
