Long range 223 Rem. ...haven't shot these yet 80 Gr Hornady Amax with Varget & Lapua Match Brass
that wont run in the acr will it? seems like it will be too heavy for the 1/8 or 1/9 twist that is in the current barrel

No the 80Gr are too heavy for the 1/9 bbl. I'm planning to shoot them in my RRA NM which has a 1/8 twist I think.

My 69 grains say 1-7 to 1-10 I think. Also isn't 77 grain about the max for being able to fit into a magazine? I've seen single shot mags for longer lengths which I imagine are those 80 grain ones.

Im not sure its a true 1-8 can double check. its a pretty heavy bullet I think the 69 grains are good for 1-7 to 1-10 not sure about he 77 grain ones. I have read those 80 s do 600m pretty well.

Table Bookcase Property Window Furniture The bench was an old USAF armorer table that the were about to throw out it was pretty rough untill I adopted it and refinished it. It is really heavy duty and weighs close to 250 lbs. I have a Lee single stage setup right now which works fine for my .223, but I am in the process of getting a Lee classic turret press for my 9mm and 45 ACP reloading because I usually do a 1000 at a time. I have only been reloading for about 2 years and am constantly trying to upgrade my eqipment whenever the off duty supervisor permits.

Real nice. I have a 550 as well. I see a 650 locally that im dreaming up ideas for. I like your setup. I just moved and hope to get things going soon. The riser stand for them make a good difference? I am feeling the need for one. Luckily there's a local dillon dealer. I forgot to post a pic of my more recent set up before packing. I had used a spare bedroom. That's the plan for this new place as well. Unfortunately I don't think my 800 pound safe will be able to make the move.

If you mean the Dillon Strong Mount yes. You're not limited to mounting the press on the edge of your bench and it's a nice height. My friend made the wooden bases for me and the bolts are all the same space and type, making it easy to move presses and other equipment around.
