    The Platinum no longer comes with short dies, if you mean the "shell holders" that measure about 1" in height. Otherwise the dies are 2½" tall: Shell Holder=1", Dies=2½".

    It could very well have the short "shell holders" as P/W did offer the Platinum in both configurations initially. If it has the shell holders, then it should also have an aluminum cylinder (turret). All present Platinums have a Grivory (black plastic) turret. I always preferred the aluminum.

    Consequently, I personally prefer the 800 Plus because of the aluminum turret.

    Both are good reloaders if you get a used one that has not been "played with." One can adjust them such that they have problems, but those can be rectified with proper adjusting.

    I don't have any used one here. I am trying NOT to get into the used market. It is difficult at best to determine the value of a used reloader over a phone call or email. I just about have to have the machine sitting here at the shop, to look it over carefully. Unfortunately, that requires a fair amount in shipping, and then if we can't agree on its value, then shipping gets worse when it has to be shipped back. Therefore I try not to get into used.
