More RL 550s have been sold than any other progressive machine in the world. And for good reason. The RL 550C's versatility is almost unlimited. It will load over 120 different rifle and pistol calibers. Its quick change toolhead allows the user to change calibers without having to readjust dies.

Used with Dillon three-die pistol sets, the RL 550C allows crimping to be done separately in the last station. This feature makes die adjustment easier and produces a more consistent and accurate round of ammunition. For this reason, more competition ammunition is loaded on Dillon progressives than on all other loading machines combined.

NOTE: Dies sets sold separately.

What you need to change cartridges on the 550C

Sample Pricing: RL550C (as of August 2021)

REQUIRED

1. Caliber conversion kit: It will be specific to the cartridge you wish to load; comes complete with shellplate, powder funnel, and locator buttons. Some calibre conversions require the use of the extra large powder die #21253, which is also sold separately but this is normally for large rifle cartridges.

2. Dies: Specific to the cartridge you wish to load

OPTIONAL (but these are a very good idea)

3. #22058 Deluxe quick change assembly: provides a new toolhead for the dies you buy as well as a toolhead to put the dies into instead of changing for the ones already in the existing toolhead. It includes a new powder measure so you don’t have to drain your powder and reset it for the new cartridge as well as a powder die to screw the powder measure into. Finally, a toolhead stand on which to put the toolhead you are replacing.




XL750 Reloader with Conversion (Pistol Calibers)

Sample Pricing: XL750 (as of July 2021)

#XL750

XL750 Reloader with Conversion (Pistol Calibers)


- - -

SPECIAL ORDER ITEM! May take 3-4 weeks to deliver

NOTE FROM MURRAY: I have never received any 750s to date, as of September 2020. They have been back ordered for 8 weeks. I can back order one for you if you wish and we can keep our fingers crossed. There is a similar back order for most Dillon products to date.

- - -


The Dillon XL750 is a high-speed progressive reloading machine designed to load common rifle and handgun cartridges, from .17 Hornet though the common belted magnum cartridges in rifle, and .32 ACP through .500 S&W in handgun. Machine height from the bench is 32" without the optional electric case feeder, 38 1/2" with the electric casefeeder installed.

NOTE: NO DIES ARE INCLUDED WITH THE LOADER. DIES MUST BE ORDERED SEPARATELY.

The XL750 is shown with the following options:

  • Electric Casefeeder
  • Roller Handle
  • Strong Mount
  • Bullet Tray
  • Powdercheck Die
  • Low Powder Sensor
  • Die set

The basic XL 750 includes the following:

  • 1 powder measure with standard large and small powder bars (small bar installed). The small bar throws from 2.1 to 15 grains of powder. The large bar throws from 15 to 55 grains of extruded powder or up to 60 grains of ball/spherical type powder.
  • 1 primer system with large and small priming parts (appropriate size installed).
  • 1 large and one small primer pick-up tube.
  • 1 Low Primer Alarm
  • 1 loaded cartridge bin
  • 1 toolhead
  • 1 powder die
  • 1 caliber conversion kit - installed
  • 1 set of standard Allen wrenches

You will also need (at a minimum, see quote):

  • Die set (dies are not included with the base unit)
  • Powder scale
  • Reloading Handbook
  • Dial Caliper
  • Primer flip tray
  • Case lube (for bottleneck cartridges but best with straight wall handgun too)

I also suggest the following:

  • Dillon dies, which are designed for high speed use.
  • Extra primer pick-up tubes, if loading more than 100 - 200 rounds per sitting.
  • If you are loading more than 500 rounds per reloading session, then one of Vibra Prime, DAA Pro Primer filler or RF-100 Electric Primer Filler are accessories well worth considering.
  • A machine cover to keep the unit dust free.

To change calibers, you will need:

  • A Die set for the new caliber.
  • A Caliber Conversion Kit.
  • If you have the optional electric casefeeder you may need a different casefeed plate.
  • If you are using the Mr. Bulletfeeder you may need a caliber conversion.

If you want to leave your dies preset, you'll want:

  • Toolhead (#13863)
  • Powder die (#20064)
  • OR The 750/650 Quick Change (#22059), which includes a powder measure, powder die, toolhead and a toolhead stand. This allows you to leave your dies and powder charge set up and dedicated to a specific cartridge for faster, easier caliber changes.



RL 1100 RELOADER

Sample Pricing: RL 1100 (as of August 2021)

#21067

RL 1100

SPECIAL ORDER ITEM! Note that this press is currently backordered at Dillon due to the effects of COVID on production, so please be aware to expect a delay.

SPECIAL SHIPPING NOTICE! Both the 1050 and 1100 are available, by special order, at the same price. But here’s a wrinkle: the 1050 weighs 66lb and can ship Canada Post, max weight. The 1100 weighs 74lb and has to go another way. Last UPS to Etobicoke was just under $300. Hope that helps when you order.

NEW!

The Dillon RL1100 is the newest reloading machine in the Dillon Precision Products line. It will accommodate common cartridges from 32 ACP up through 308 Winchester, up to 2.75" overall length. The 1100 features a variable speed case feeder (included) that allows you to infinitely regulate the speed from 0 to 8 RPM. The motor has a universal power supply for both domestic and foreign voltages - 110 or 220 Volt, 60 or 50 hz, you simply swap out the plug to the style appropriate to your region. The bowl has an adjustable window cuff and cases deflector, for a larger range of cartridge capability.

Note that prices may vary on exotic calibres.

550/650/750 Toolhead Clamp Kit

UT110

550/650/750 Toolhead Clamp Kit

$40

The UniqueTek Toolhead Clamp Kit™ comes complete with all the parts needed for 2 presses and 6 toolheads in a reclosable plastic bag.

The UniqueTek Toolhead Clamp Kit™ enables the toolhead of Dillon 550 & 650 presses, or the die plate of RCBS Pro 2000®/ Piggyback™ -3 & -4 presses, to be CLAMPED into the press frame. This corrects the loose fit between the toolhead and press frame, thus reducing OAL (overall length) variation and stabilizing die-to-shellplate alignment. Your press frame remains unmodified so you can still use standard toolheads/die plates with the original toolhead pins ... and your original manufacturer's warranty will not be affected.

  • Eliminates Loose Toolhead-to-Frame Fit
  • Reduces OAL Variation (It also reduces vibration and stops toolhead rattling when using the Dillon Rapid Trim Case Trimmer!)
  • Improves Crimp Repeatibility
  • Improves Bullet Concentricity from Seating Die
  • Reduces Jams at Size/Decap Die

Works With The Following Presses

  • Dillon XL 650, RL 550B, BL 550, AT 500 and SL 900
  • RCBS Pro 2000® and Piggyback™ -3 & -4

Wait a minute, RCBS Presses? Yes! The Toolhead Clamp Kit™ works equally well on RCBS Pro 2000® and Piggyback™ -3 & -4 presses!

How it Works

Installation and use is quite simple. You tap threads into the two locator pin holes in the toolhead then install a stainless steel thread insert into each hole. The press frame is NOT modified. When you install the toolhead in the press frame, insert the clamp screws instead of locator pins to hold the toolhead into the frame. Leave the screws loose until you begin cycling the press and have all dies occupied by a round. Then, with the ram still in the up position, tighten the clamp screws. This procedure aligns the toohead to the shellplate, reducing jams. The clamp screws also create a preload force, clamping the toolhead against the top of the press frame, stopping the toolhead from moving during the press cycle and resulting in reduced OAL variation. Once the screws are tightened, just continue reloading as usual.




Tap Handle for Clamp Kit

UT180

Tap Handle for Clamp Kit

$8 each

This nifty "tap handle" is actually a key for winding a clock, but it is the perfect size to fit the small thread tap in our kits. It is smaller and less cumbersome to use than a standard tap handle, making it easier to align the tap squarely with the hole and making tap breakage less likely.




CED Universal Reloading Machine Light

A300511

CED Universal Reloading Machine Light

$35

The CED Universal Reloading Machine Light is the perfect companion for every reloading bench!

This custom made, heavy duty, LED light, provides 3 watts of intense lighting, illuminating your entire reloading press shell plate. With three light intensity selection levels, and a heavy duty 9” (23cm) long adjustable rubber coated neck, the CED Universal Reloading Machine light shines precisely where you need it.

Made with two heavy duty powerful magnets that strongly secure to any metal surface, this universal light is compatible with all Dillon presses (550 needs the strong mount for use), as well as the Mark 7 Evolution.

Comes in 110-240V with a flat pin adapter head, (Specify if a round pin adapter head is needed), and includes a Velcro tie strap for additional securing, when mounted onto round metal machine arm surfaces for extra sturdiness.

ON/OFF instructions:

The ON/OFF is located on the light head. To activate, press this ICON once to turn the light on! Press the second time for medium brightness and a third time for high intensity brightness. Touch it a fourth time to turn the light off.




Light-Load II Shellplate Illuminator

UT1336

Light-Load II Shellplate Illuminator

$35

This VASTLY improved light works great! Charged one up to test and it is really bright and useful.

The Light-Load II™ illuminates the shellplate of your Dillon 550, 650 or 750 reloading press. It mounts in the central toolhead hole and shines light directly onto the shellplate so you can more easily see and monitor the reloading process. A neoprene bushing (included) supports the Light-Load™ in the central toolhead hole.

Powered by Rechargeable Lithium Polymer Battery

The Light-Load II™ is powered by a rechargeable lithium polymer (LiPo) battery*, which is more economical than the AAA battery of the original Light-Load™, and it has longer life between recharging. On the Low setting (recommended) you will be able to load for about 4 hours without interruption. And it can be fully recharged in just 45 minutes!

5 Light Levels

  • Ultra-Low: 2 Lm
  • Low: 22 Lm (The recommended setting for reloading.)
  • Medium: 230 Lm *
  • High: 550 Lm *
  • Strobe: 550 Lm *
  • * Steps down to 65 Lm after 2 min to prevent overheating and preserve battery life.

    NOTE: If you need a bit brighter light than the Low setting, you can start at Medium, let it fall back to 65 Lm, and load there … but the battery life will be significantly reduced.

    Also Fits in Any Unused Die Station!

    The neoprene bushing supports the Light-Load II™ in any hole up to 7/8" diameter. For example, on an XL 650 or XL 750 press, the Light-Load II™ can be installed in the Station #3 die position if a Powder Check System is not installed.

    Easily Moved!

    Regardless of which press or toolhead location you install the Light-Load II™, it can be quickly and easily moved from one toolhead to another or one press to another.

    Also Works on Hornady Lock-N-Load AP™ Press!

    The Light-Load II™ also fits the central hole of the Hornady Lock-N-Load® AP™ press die plate.




    Shellplate Bearing Kit for Dillon RL 550C

    #HF102

    RL 550C Shellplate Bearing Kit

    $46

    Shellplate Bearing Kit Dillon RL 550C replaces the index sprocket with a modified sprocket that has the room required to install the shellplate bearing kit. The bearing kit smoothes the action of the press, reducing powder spillage and increasing tactile feel while priming. Priming operation will be more consistent. (shellplate bolt not included)

    Very detailed and complete instructions are included with the kit. If you have any problems send me an email and I will call to help you finish the setup.

    Comes with what you see here. Click on each picture for a more detailed image.




    XL 650/750 Shellplate Bearing Kit

    #HF112

    XL 650/750 Shellplate Bearing Kit

    $20

    This kit eliminates the snap when the shellplate advances to the next position. When the shellplate snaps, gunpowder splashes out of the casing causing a mess on your press and inconsistent loads. Run out is eliminated and this results in more consistent ammo. Our tough as nails phenolic low mass detent ball is included. This kit also smooth's out the operation of your press. No permanent alteration of the press is necessary. Many users report more consistent and easier primer seating.

    The diagram shows the pieces that come in the kit - two high quality hardened steel thrust races and one needle bearing. The bearing pack installs on the shellplate bolt. Detailed instructions with photos are included. This will not affect the seating depth of primers or require die adjustments.




    Premium Bearing Kit for Dillon Super 1050

    #HF301

    Premium Bearing Kit for Dillon Super 1050

    $35

    Premium Shellplate Bearing Kit Dillon Super 1050 adds a roller bearing on top of the shellplate to reduce powder spilling as the shellplate snaps into position. It replaces screws with thumbscrews to speed up the adjustment of the press. Premium kit includes the very popular Shellplate Bearing Kit, thumbscrews for 3 powder measures and 3 powder measure adjustment knobs. This kit works with both new and old style powder measures.

    If you have the older, shorter stroke RL1050, do not buy this kit.




    Camming Pin Bearing for Dillon XL650/750

    #HF402

    Camming Pin Bearing for Dillon XL650/750

    $30

    If you already have a Hit Factor shellplate bearing kit this camming pin bearing will upgrade you to the ultimate kit. Your press will run smooth as silk.

    The Camming Pin Bearing reduces friction and smooths the reciprocating action of the case insert slide and slide cam. A special cut allows the casefeed arm to function correctly, there are some older 650s that really benefit from this. These camming pins are blued and finished. We match the dimensions of the OEM pin. Our pin fully supports the casefeed arm, reducing vibrations and unnecessary wear. Reduced vibrations helps to keep cases correct side up when using a casefeeder. This is an exclusive feature of our pin, not available from any other manufacturer.

    Very detailed and complete instructions are included with the kit. If you have any problems send me an email and I will call to help you finish the setup.




    Powder-Related


    DAA Magnetic Powder Check

    A103136

    DAA Magnetic Powder Check

    $90


    The DAA Magnetic Powder Check (US Pat. Pending) is a great addition to any progressive reloading machine, helping to ensure the quality and safety of your reloaded ammo.

    The unique new design uses a high-tech Reed Sensor and a magnet assembled to the plunger Rod, to assess if the charge in the case is of the correct height.

    This original design also provides, for the first time, an adjustability option. By bringing the Reed Sensor closer or further from the magnet, you can determine how forgiving the powder checker will be, or how much of a range of variance in the powder level should be acceptable without sounding the alarm. At its most sensitive, the accepted height variance is about 2mm, which correlates to a powder error of less than +-0.5 grain. More than sufficient to pick up any of the mistakes we are checking for, such as a double-charge, debris in the case or a case without powder.

    The DAA Magnetic Powder Check assembles onto a station immediately after your powder dropper, screwing into a standard die thread 7/8-14 station. However, unlike other powder check systems, the DAA product does not require a dedicated hole drilled through the tool head next to the station! It can be used on ANY progressive reloader which has an available station after the powder drop.

    A powder-check does require the use of a station in your toolhead, so if you do not currently have an available station, you may need to combine your seating and crimping into one station using a 2-in-1 seat/crimp die to free up a station. These too are available from mdgardner.com.

    Summary of features and advantages:

    • Can be used on all toolheads, does not require a dedicated hole near station.
    • Assembles onto any 7/8-14 station
    • Provides both an audible AND a visual alarms
    • Can be adjusted for sensitivity, to avoid false alarms
    • Includes all parts for both rifle and pistol use
    • Activates off the rim of the case, so no alarm sound when no brass is present
    • Slim and compact design.
    • Quality materials. Stainless Steel Rod, with aluminum red anodized die body. Rubber coated glass-fiber reinforced nylon for electronic housing

    Please note:

    The current design of the new XL750 does not allow the bullet dropper to be positioned in station #4 of the toolhead because of the angle at which the powder Dispenser bar extends directly towards it. This means the bullet dropper MUST be positioned immediately after the powder dropper, in station #3. That makes it impossible to use a Powder-Check AND a bullet dropper at the same time.

    We will attempt to come up with a solution to allow the powder dropper to be rotated to another angle to resolve this issue, but at the moment, be aware of this issue.


    Powder-Spill-Prevention (PSP) Brush

    A102917

    PSP Brush for the 650/750

    $25

    A102918

    PSP Brush for the 1050

    $25


    OK, I had to try it while getting this together. It really does work as advertised!

    The DAA Powder-Spill-Prevention (PSP) Brush is a simple yet efficient reloading accessory that solves a real issue: How to prevent small amounts of powder being spilled out of the case, as the tool head of the progressive reloading press indexes?

    This problem is even more acute for reloaders using Autodrive systems on their Dillon machines, in which case you cannot use your hand to stabilize the case, as the shell plate indexes forward. Especially when reloading very full cases, powder spill can have a real influence on the accuracy of the ammo you are producing, and the accumulating powder on your shell plate can prevent the smooth function of your press, and require frequent cleaning.

    Introducing the DAA PSP brush solution. Just magnetically click this part onto your Dillon press, and immediately your powder spill issues will be greatly reduced or completely eliminated. You’ll be able to index your shell plate faster, and produce more consistent, accurate ammo, while keeping your shell-plate clean and powder free.


    Click adjustable powder knob

    A102427 V2

    Click adjustable powder knob

    $40

    The DAA Click-Adjustable Powder Knob V2, is the 2nd generation offering from DAA. Building on the experience and feedback of the first model, this one is, simply put, better!

    The two piece aluminum structure eliminates the need to tie the base piece to the powder dropper, and the assembled spring-loaded steel balls (2 of them, for smoother function) make assembly a breeze. (No more battling with trying to keep the steel ball in place while assembling the knob!) The DAA Click-Adjustable Powder Knob V2 makes setting and adjusting your powder charge much easier and more precise.

    The large 32mm round, aluminum machined and laser engraved knob, is knurled around the outer edge making it easy and convenient to rotate the bolt and adjust the charge. The two piece system includes two spring-ball assemblies, which click over pockets in the back of the knob, creating loud audible clicks to accurately rotate the dial in steps of 18deg, 20 clicks per rotation. These adjustments are easily small enough for any practical adjustment of the measured powder charge.

    The laser engraved dial indicates direction for increasing or decreasing the charge, and the numbers make it easy to keep track of what the correct position should be for one load or another. The DAA Click-Adjustable Powder Knob V2 assembles in seconds on your existing Dillon powder dispenser adjustment bolt. A 2mm helen key is required (not included).

    Designed for use on the Small Dillon Charge bar. Does not fit the large Rifle charge bar!




    2x Powder Hopper Tube

    UT310

    2x Powder Hopper Tube

    $45

    If you reload large capacity rifle cartridges, large quantities of pistol cartridges for competition, or use "fluffy" high load density powders like IMR Trail Boss, you know how frustrating it is to have to stop frequently to fill the powder hopper on your Dillon press. Ever wish you could "Super Size" your powder hopper? Now you can! The 2X Powder Hopper Tube™ doubles the powder capacity of your Dillon Auto Powder Measure by replacing the original 7" powder hopper tube with a 14" powder hopper tube.

    Fits both the Dillon Auto Powder Measure and the Dillon "Belted Magnum" Powder System!

    The 2X Powder Hopper Tube™ is made from high-strength, clear, poylcarbonate tubing that will not stain or discolor from extended contact with most gunpowders.*

    Our Precision Powder Baffle™ is included and provides a uniform flow of gunpowder to the powder bar, regardless of the powder level in the hopper. The powder baffle is made from 20 gauge aluminum and is water-jet cut to precise dimensions.

    Easy Installation! Just empty the powder measure, remove the two screws attaching the original powder hopper and lift off the powder hopper tube. Insert the 2X Powder Hopper Tube™ and attach using the original screws. You even get to use your original Dillon powder measure lid.

    Compatibility with Dillon Low Powder Sensor If you use a Dillon Low Powder Sensor, it will still fit but will alarm at 50% full unless you modify it with a longer follower rod. Extending the follower rod is easy and inexpensive and instructions are included.




    11" Powder Hopper Tube (Super 1050)

    UT3101

    Powder Hopper Tube (Super 1050)

    $45

    Due to the location of the case feed hopper on the Super 1050, there isn't enough vertical clearance for a 14" Powder Hopper Tube. We have an alternative 11" tall Powder Hopper Tube that does fit and yields a 57% increase in powder capacity. Just select the Super 1050 version from the pop-down menu when you place your order.

    Don't need to double your powder capacity but still want a stain resistant hopper tube? Just use the Super 1050 hopper tube (11") on any Dillon press. It will give you a stain resistant hopper tube, and the Precision Powder Baffle™, but is only 4" taller than the original powder hopper tube.

    Note: Staining can occur with Hodgdon TITEGROUP™ gunpowder. When using TITEGROUP, we recommend that you drain the powder measure when not in use. You can easily drain powder using our Powder Measure Drain-N-Change Tool™.




    Powder Measure Drain-N-Change

    UT330

    Powder Measure Drain-N-Change

    $25

    The Powder Measure Drain-N-Change™ Tool Allows users of Dillon reloading presses to drain gunpowder or change powder bars without removing the powder measure from the toolhead or press.

    Just 1 Drain-N-Change™ Tool Services ALL of your Powder Measures! Since the Drain-N-Change Tool is only used while draining powder or changing powder bars, and not a permanent installation, you only need one tool to service all of your powder measures.

    The Powder Measure Drain-N-Change™ Tool drains 100% of the powder from the powder measure hopper, leaving the powder measure completely empty and ready to be filled with the next gunpowder.

    Fits all versions of the Dillon Auto Powder Measure. Does not fit the older, manually operated Dillon Powder Measure as it uses a smaller size (narrower) powder bar.

    Operations You can Perform:

    • Drain Powder Measure without removing from press or toolhead
    • Remove Powder Bar without draining powder
    • Change between any two powder bars (all 4 sizes) without draining powder




    Micrometer Powder Bar Kit

    UT340

    Micrometer Powder Bar Kit

    $95

    The UniqueTek Micrometer Powder Bar Kit™ upgrades your existing powder bar to a micrometer powder bar. No more guessing how many turns of the adjustment screw will get you back to that perfect powder weight.

    Much more than just a dial or knob – the Micrometer Powder Bar Kit™ replaces the original 1/4-28 adjustment bolt with a true precision micrometer with 40 threads per inch. You will be able to return instantly to any powder weight setting with a speed and an accuracy never before possible. Of course, you still must weigh and confirm all powder weight setting changes.

    Fits all Powder Bar sizes. Also fits SL 900 Powder Bar and Shot Bars!

    Kit includes: Micrometer head, LocTite® and installation instructions. Powder bar is not included.

    Arrendondo Powder Drop Slide with Micrometer SDB/650

    $155

    If you use Vectan SP2 or other super fine grained powders, you know how the powder can leak around the powder bar and even jam the Dillon powder bar. The Arredondo Accessories plastic Powder Drop Slide has been proven to cure this problem.

    You get all of the advantages of the Arredondo Powder Drop Slide PLUS our Micrometer Powder Bar Kit™!

    Need super small powder drops? These powder drop slides are customized, exclusively for UniqueTek, to allow even smaller powder drops than the standard Arredondo Powder Drop Slide.

If you are loading small centerfire cartridges like the .32 S&W Long for ISSF Center Fire Pistol and other target competition, this is THE powder bar to use!

    Advantages:

    • Prevents galling with Vectan SP2
    • Super small powder drop ... as low as 0.7 grain (with Win 231)
    • Micrometer Powder Bar Kit is preinstalled


    ORDERING NOTES: Due to the different orientations of the powder measure on the various Dillon presses, the powder drop slide is available with the micrometer installed in one of two orientations. If you do not make a selection, you will be sent the UT350 for the RL 550B/Super 1050 presses.

    • Left side of powder bar — For RL 550B or Super 1050 - UT350
    • Right side of powder bar — For XL 650/750 or Square Deal B - UT345

    Although the micrometer index marks will read upside down on the XL 650/750 or Square Deal B, this orientation provides better visibility of the micrometer and easier powder weight adjustment. Please indicate your choice by part #.

    DAA Primafill

    Primafill

    A103288

    $110

    The Double-Alpha PRIMAFILL is a semi-automatic primer-tube filling solution, able to quickly and easily fill both Small and Large primer tubes. It allows you to switch between Small and Large primers instantly, without tools or assembly.

    The PRIMAFILL can be used with any primer tubes which have an 8mm outer diameter, such as Dillon, or DAA tubes. It does not require a custom adaptor piece fitted to the tube, as other competing products require. So using the PRIMAFILL, you will be able to fill all your primer tubes!

    The Extra-Large flip-tray area is convenient when emptying large primer boxes, such as Federal and others. The tray is large enough for the entire box to fit over.

    The PRIMAFILL is powered by a regular 9v battery (not included). A momentary ON switch falls naturally under your index finger as you hold the device for right hand use, with your thumb centered on top of the lid. Hold the button down as you feed the primers into the tube, and release as soon as the last primer vanishes down the exit hole. Since this action should take 20 seconds or less, one battery charge will last for many thousands of primers.

    The spring-loaded orange latches incorporated into the output posts enable you to snap a tube into place, or remove it, instantly without any twists or turns, the latch falls naturally under your thumb: you press down on it as you insert the tube up, and you press up on the latch as you extract the tube downwards. An Easy and natural apposing thumb action.

    Primer tubes and battery are not included!

    Please Note:

    • Various brands of primers will flip best with different types of agitation motion of the flip tray. Experiment to find the optimal flip tray action required to flip your primers.
    • Various types of primers will slide differently, at different speeds. Some will require you to hold the device at a steeper angle to get them moving properly. Experiment a little to find the correct feeding angle best for your primers.
    • If a primer hangs on the exit hole, a tap with your left hand finger on top of the lid above the hole should clear that up instantly. No need to stop the vibration of the device or remove the lid.
    • If your primer tubes have an entry hole chamfer that is not well formed or not symmetrical, this can create a ledge that primers may hang up as they fall down into the tube. Try using the other end of your tube. Or, try rotating the tube to find the angle that allows the primers to flow uninterruptedly into the tube. You can mark that with a Sharpie on your tube, so you can easily position it again the same way.
    • Primer Tubes are NOT included with the device, in order to reduce costs and packaging size. Order tubes separately, if you need them.

    DAA Primer Flip Tray

    Primer Flip Tray

    A103347

    $15

    A Primer Flip Tray is a “must have” item for most reloaders.

    The DAA Primer Flip Tray is made larger than most, and square in shape, to make it easier to empty a box of primers onto the tray. Even the very large box of the popular Federal primers easily fits within the footprint of our tray.

    Much experimentation and finetuning was done on the serrations to make the tray as efficient and fast to use as possible. Just a few shakes of the wrist will flip all your primers Anvil side up.

    The tray is made from a tough translucent plastic material, making it possible to see the primers through the tray as you flip it over enabling you to keep the primers well spread out for easy pickup.

    But the most unique and innovative feature of our primer tray, solves an irritating issue well known to all primer flip tray uses!

    Other Primer Flip Trays all have a sharp cornered side-wall on their lids. Because of this, when primers are close up against the side-wall they are very difficult to pick up. This forces uses to shuffle the tray to move the primers away from the wall.

    However, the lid of the DAA Primer Flip Tray has a side-wall which is a 45 degree angled slope. This allows you to easily pick up the primers even when they are tight up against the side wall of the lid, saving you valuable time as you fill your primer tubes.


    DAA Small Primer Tubes

    Small Primer Tubes

    A103285

    $50, 5-pack

    The DAA Primer Pickup Tubes are made of the highest quality aluminum, produced using custom-made extrusion tools and tightly controlled for accuracy and finish. Close attention is paid to the consistency of the internal and external chamfering to ensure optimal feeding. The matt-finish anodizing makes identifying the primer size immediate, while giving these tubes a striking attractive look. Blue Anodized pipe and end pieces for LARGE Primers, Red for SMALL.

    Much testing and development went into the plastic pickup and drop ends of these tubes.

    The Pick-up end is engineered to provide a more ergonomic shape, making it much more comfortable to grip in one’s hand. A very noticeable improvement for those loading many tubes in one session. The wider, larger finger-support area, with its smooth support ring, prevents hand fatigue and cramping, as you do not need to close your fingers as tightly, like you do with other tubes.

    The tip was redesigned as well, and includes two “teeth” (not one, as others do). Carefully designed deep slots provide just the right amount of flexibility. The dual teeth work in union to pick up the primer horizontally while creating just enough pressure to ensure a firm grip on the primer while they are picked up.

    Both the Pickup and drop ends are made of translucent material making it easy to see the primers as they slide through the pipe ends. This is particularly handy when emptying the tube into your press, as you can easily see when they are all through.

    These end pieces slide onto the tubes with a firm fit to ensure they do not come off accidently.

    When assembling your tubes, make sure you press the ends all the way down onto the pipe, as leaving a gap can create a functional issue.


    DAA PRIMER-PRO Collator

    PRIMER-PRO Collator

    A103168

    $290

    The PRIMER-PRO by Double-Alpha is a unique new approach to handling primers, and the solution reloaders have been waiting for!

    As any reloader knows well, manually filling primer tubes can be the most time-consuming and aggravating step in the whole reloading process, and few good automated solutions exist.

    The PRIMER-PRO uses a collator type solution where the primers are allowed to exit the bowl through 20 precisely formed channels, ONLY if they are orientated in the correct direction (Anvil side up). If they are Anvil down, they will not pass through the channel, and rather slide back into the bowl as their channel reaches the top of the rotation, to enter again later, correctly oriented.

    This rejection-type design makes it practically impossible for a primer to enter the output channel if incorrectly orientated, making this device extremely reliable.

    As the primers slide down the covered output-chute, they pass through an optical sensor which counts them and stops the collator once 100 primers have been counted into the primer-tube. The electronic processor board also monitors the sensor and is programed to stop the collator if, for whatever reason, primers hang-up on the exit hole and stack up along the ramp. The collator will be stopped before the primers stack all the way up and jam the collator. In such a case, the LED will flash quickly to indicate there is a problem. Once cleared, pressing the start button again will allow the collator to run and the count will continue from where it was stopped. Or alternatively, a long press on the button will start the count a new.

    One of the most innovative design solutions of the PRIMER-PRO is the Output Actuator Arm, which is activated by a lever system off the Timing Disk at the bottom of the Collator Assembly. This Output Actuator Arm slides the primers from the bottom of the ramp slide, moving them over to above the output hole, holding them there for a split second to ensure they are static, horizontal and stable, and then retracting to allow the primer to fall cleanly down into the awaiting primer tube. This dynamic solution for the exit hole greatly reduces the chance of primers hanging up while exiting into the tube, a problem common with other automated primer fillers.

    The PRIMER-PRO is currently available only for Smaller Primers, and handles Small-Rifle or Small-Pistol Primers equally well. A Large primer version may be offered in the future.

    One Magnetic Collar for a Dillon Primer Tube is included with the unit. Since the PRIMER-PRO can refill a single Primer Tube faster than you can use the previous 100 primers in any reloading press, only one tube is strictly necessary.

    However additional Magnetic Collars can be purchased separately, for those who prefer to fill multiple tubes before starting their reloading session.

    NOTE: Primer tube not included.




    Primer Track Bearing for the 550C press

    UT241

    Primer Track Bearing for the 550C press

    $35

    The UniqueTek 550 Primer Track Bearing has a 1.4" extension that supports the primer bar better. This extended support prevents the primer bar from "drooping" and binding while its in the "out" position. The top surface of the bearing has also been coated with a Molybdenum Disulfide dry-film lubricant to further enhance smooth motion of the primer bar.

    The photo above shows the UniqueTek 550 Primer Track Bearing (left) compared to the original Dillon part (right).

    No more spent primers bouncing out and onto the floor when you reload!

    Each Spent Primer Chute™ installs easily on your Dillon reloading press. Spent primers are routed through clear PVC tubing (included) into any convenient waste container. The Spent Primer Chute™ creates a fully enclosed pathway for spent primers ... so they simply can't bounce out!

    All spent primer chutes come with 3 feet of clear PVC tubing, long enough to route spent primers to a container on, or under, your reloading bench. Route it to a 5-gallon paint pail and you won't need to empty the spent primers for a very long time! If you use a strong mount, you can even drill a 1/2" hole directly under the press, run the PVC tubing through the hole, and place a container under your reloading bench where it is out of the way.

    Note: The 650 Spent Primer Chute™ will not fit certain older XL 650 presses ... manufactured prior to about 1997. These older presses do not have the same mounting bracket for the Spent Primer Cup, so don't have the threaded screw holes needed to mount the 650 Spent Primer Chute™.

    Please refer to the "Platform Assembly Drawing" in your Dillon XL 650 Instruction Manual for these part numbers and their locations on the press.

    • WILL FIT: If your press is equipped with the blue Spent Primer Cup (part #16211) and Spent Primer Cup Bracket (part #16209) attached by two screws (part #14689), then the 650 Spent Primer Chute™ will fit.
    • WILL NOT FIT: If your press is equipped with Spent Primer Cup Bracket (part #13421) and Spent Primer Cup (part #13420), the 650 Spent Primer Chute™ will not fit.

    SPECIAL ORDER ITEM! May take 3-4 weeks to deliver

    Dillon makes an electric primer filler to save you the worst part of the reloading job.

    This is WAY too neat! I treated myself to one a year or so ago and can't believe I waited so long. No more filling up those fershluginner primer tubes one primer at a time...

    I calculate I have done that 750,000 times since 1975.

    Now, I just throw the 100 pack of primers into the hopper on the top, turn it on for 2 minutes and, TA-DA!-100 primers ready to put into the magazine tube on the press! I can load 55 rounds on my 1050 in the time it takes this unit to fill 100 into the tube. In other words, I can't load faster than it can fill the tube-WOW!

    They are pricey but the time and hassle it saves me is more than worth the money. Primer fillers are in stock, of course, like all the products I show on my web page.

    DAA 550 Mini Case Feeder

    $210

    The DAA 550 Mini Case Feeder will greatly improve the efficiency of your Dillon 550 reloading press! By automatically feeding the cases into the shell plate, this clever accessory allows you to keep your right hand on the handle as you operate the press, and eliminates the need to pick up and orientate each piece of brass manually and feed it into the shell plate. Your reloading will be faster, easier and more enjoyable!

    Please be sure to watch the video tutorials on Setup and caliber conversion BEFORE attempting to use your 550 Mini Case Feeder!

    Unlock the full potential of your Dillon 550 case feeder with this device, which ships complete and ready to use to load most pistol calibers, as well as .223 and .300BO.

    You can switch calibers on the case feeder in under a minute, making this solution perfect for 550 reloaders who often reload many calibers.

    Supported calibers include: .380ACP, 9mm, 9x21, 9x23, .38S, .40SW, .45ACP, .38SPL, .357MAG .223, .300BO*

    * to use the case feeder with 300BO, you need to modify the Type A case slider adaptor, making it shorter by 1.5-2.0mm. You can do so using a file, Dremmel, or belt sander. After this modification the Type A spacer can still be used without issue for the .357, but it will no longer function with the 38SPL. If you require both 300BO and .38SPL calibers – contact us for a spare Type A spacer.

    Your DAA 550 Mini Case Feeder includes the following parts:

    • One 6 tube magazine assembly (will hold approx..150pcs of 9mm, or 130 of .40 or .38S)
    • Magazine holder assembly
    • Plunger assembly
    • Rail assembly
    • Feed Track assembly
    • 5 feed tubes
    • 3 case slider adaptors
    • Large (Rifle) case feeder

    Additional magazine tubes can be purchased separately, and we highly recommend the use of the optional Mini Case Feeder Bowl to greatly speed up the process of filling the tubes.

    MINI CASE FEEDER NOTE: May not work with all Dillon Roller handles, as some seem to be more angled inwards towards the press.


    Mini Case Feeder Loader Bowl

    Mini Case Feeder Loader Bowl

    $30

    The DAA Mini case feeder for the Dillon XL650/750 has been a popular product for years. It’s a great way to unlock the full potential of these excellent reloading presses, even without making the investment in the optional electric case feeder. The 6-tube assembly can hold approx. 100 pcs of 9mm brass, and feeds reliably as you reload.

    However, filling these 6 tubes can be time consuming – and we are pleased to offer a solution for that!

    The DAA Mini Case Feeder Loader Bowl attaches to the top of your Mini case feeder tube assembly, and sits firmly in place. By dropping handfuls of brass into the large bowl area, and shaking the tube assembly, you can fill the tubes much faster than you otherwise could, by feeding the brass in one at a time. with a little practice you will find the perfect motion and quantity of brass to feed into the bowl, and then an upside down case falling down the tube becomes rare indeed.

    We recommend removing the tube assembly from the press in order to fill them.

    Included with the bowl is the .223 adaptor plate, which should be used when filling .223 case into the tubes. Fill three tubes, then rotate the .223 adaptor place one position to fill the other three tubes.

    A great time saver, making your DAA Mini Case Feeder an even more useful and effective solution!

    Product includes large bowl and .223 adaptor plate.

    TORNADO Tumbler Using Wet Media

    $480

    SPECIAL ORDER ITEM! May take 3-4 weeks to deliver

    The CED Brass Tornado, Pro Series Tumbler, is the Reloader’s dream machine! It is the most technologically advanced wet rotary tumbler ever! This new Pro Series rotary tumbler incorporates features and functions that have never been offered on tumblers before. Now it is possible to “fine-tune” the brass cleaning process, the time spent, and the results achieved.

    The CED Brass Tornado incorporates so many features that others simply do not provide:

    Included Key Features:

    • High strength, durable, 3.5L Acrylic CLEAR Drum
    • Up to 8 kg (17.5 lbs. load capacity)
    • Metal Housing Construction with Heavy Duty Motor
    • Digital Control Panel with digital circuitry
    • ON/OFF & START / PAUSE Selection
    • Adjustable Speed Selection (up to 100 rpm)
    • Variable Direction Mode (up to 20 minute intervals)
    • Timer (15 min. to 3 hour settings)
    • Alarm Notification
    • Memory Setting
    • Custom designed Filtration Cover
    • LED Operation Indicators
    • 3.5 lbs. Stainless Steel Media
    • 110V or 220V Models available

    The CED Brass Tornado is the FIRST to feature variable speeds, variable forward / reverse direction options, On / Off / Start / Pause selection, up to a three-hour timer with alarm function, and memory. All in an advanced digital product designed by shooters for shooters! Featuring a high speed, powerful motor, a 3.5L tumbler drum capacity, which allows more than 450 -500 pistol or up to 300 rifle cartridges to be cleaned at a time. Capacity will vary depending on the caliber brass being cleaned.

    More and more shooters are “wet-tumbling” their brass (in liquid) with reusable stainless steel polishing media, rather than using traditional dry media in a vibratory tumbler. The “wet-cleaning” method works best with a rotary tumbler fitted with a water-tight, horizontal drum to hold the brass, cleaning solution, and stainless, pin-type media. Through extensive testing, CED has developed an excellent cleaning combination of stainless steel media, water, Lemi Shine, and Lyman Turbo Sonic Cartridge Cleaner, which when combined results in glistening clean brass cartridges, inside and out, including the primer pockets. Our recommended combination, even seem to remove “water spots” and residue leaving shining, spotless brass that look like new!

    The tumbler consists of a re-sealable watertight drum, a driving system base on which to place the drum, and a motor to rotate the drum at ideal speeds of 40-60 RPM. The speed is important - too fast and centrifugal force will cause the cases and media to cling to the sides of the drum with virtually no cleaning action whatsoever. Too slow, and the cleaning process is inefficient and extremely time consuming. This is one of the single failures of other rotary tumblers on the market today. They offer only a “fixed” speed. Unfortunately, depending on the weight of the contents being cleaned, the drum will spin at different speeds. The CED Brass Tornado solves this problem by offering variable speed selection from 5 RPM up to 100 RPM, allowing the user to select a faster speed for heavy loads or a slower speed for smaller load sessions. The CED Brass Tornado is designed with a hexagon shaped drum, which dramatically improves the cleaning process by creating more “tumbling” movement of the cases as they rub against each other and the steel media, which in turn removes all of the fouling and thoroughly polishes the cases inside and out, including the primer pockets when de-primed cases are in use.

    The CED Brass Tornado a custom designed filtration cap that allows easy rinsing of the brass from the dirty water solution before separation and drying. Also included are 3.5 lbs. of stainless steel media, and a spare sealing O-ring. Also included are a sample of Lyman Turbo Sonic cleaner and Lemi Shine, an outstanding combination to produce “like new” results. The CED Brass Tornado comes with a complete two year warranty, and CED stocks a full line of replacement parts / accessories if ever needed. Net weight: 12 kgs. (26.4 lbs.) Dimensions: 27 W x 29 D x 32 H cm (10.75 W x 11.5 x 12.25” H)

    You will wonder how you ever reloaded without one...

    If you reload a lot, you quickly appreciate the efficiency and reliability of this ingenious patented system.

    Please note: All pistol calibers use the same output tube, lead spring and spring adaptor cap. So this assembly is not included in the conversion kit –as you will not need a second one when changing pistol calibers.

    The rifle calibers too share the same output assembly, and so when converting from 223 to 308, the same output assembly is used.

    However – if you intend to buy a conversion kit to convert a rifle unit to a pistol caliber, you must purchase the output assembly required, in addition to the conversion kit.

    We are proud to introduce the new Mr. Bulletfeeder® by DAA. DAA and RAK Systems have teamed up and have retooled and redesigned the Mr. Bulletfeeder®, which is now manufactured by Double-Alpha Academy. The new system, manufactured under license by RAK Systems, is lighter in weight and more compact than the previous models. It is easier to install and set up, and has a more professional “production” look and feel.

    An entirely new US Patent Pending dropper system allows the new model to function better and longer than before. The new dropper design eliminates the need for any spring or small plastic parts in the dropper head, and works entirely powered by gravity and an ingenious geometric design.

    If you have never tried a bullet feeder on your progressive reloader - what are you waiting for?! It cuts the time and effort involved in reloading practically in half! A must-have item for any serious shooter.

    The Dropper Assembly is needed for shooters who wish to set up a second tool-head in the same caliber, and wish to quickly transition from, say, 9mm to .38 Super. Or from one 9mm bullet to another. A change is needed to the collator parts, and if a 2nd tool-head is to be used on the progressive reloader, it is quicker and easier to leave an adjusted Mr.Bulletfeeder dropper on each tool-head. This allows for quick swapovers, without the need to calibrate or adjust the dropper.

    Note that in most cases you will need to purchase an additional Powder Funnel for your second tool-head’s powder measure, as our expanding powder funnel is required for troublefree reloading.

    Mr. BulletFeeder PRO Dropper Assembly

    $195

    A102549

    9mm
    Also available for .40 and .45

    The Dropper Assembly is a critical component of the bullet feeder, and in the PRO model it has been further evolved and improved. Also works with the original Mr. Bullet Feeder as an upgrade.

    Since the dropper is gravity powered, by increasing the weight of the assembly we are able to get a more reliable and more consistent performance. In the case of the PRO dropper, the brass section is twice as long and so twice as heavy as the original Mr.Bulletfeeder, preventing hang-up which could happen due to excessive feed-spring sideways tension or friction to the dropper.

    The Mr. Bulletfeeder PRO dropper uses all-steel parts for the die section to further add weight and durability for the large volume reloaders.

    Note that in most cases you will need to purchase an additional Powder Funnel for your second tool-head’s powder measure, as our expanding powder funnel is required for troublefree reloading.


    Mr. BulletFeeder Dropper-Tensioning Spring Assembly

    A103337

    Dropper-Tensioning Spring Assembly

    $25

    The Mr. Bulletfeeder dropper is gravity powered. When the case retracts, the inner dropper tube retracts with it, and the steel balls in the die move into place and close under the next bullet, ensuring only one bullet is released.

    That is how it is designed to function, and how it does normally function – provided the dropper is free and clear and able to drop quickly, as designed, with the retracting case.

    However, in some cases, the feeding tube spring adds side tension onto the dropper head (an issue more common on those machines where the toolhead moves up and down), or the dropper body may make contact with a close by die, creating friction that does not allow the dropper to move smoothly and quickly enough. Resulting in an occasional 2nd bullet falling out the dropper onto the shell plate.

    The Mr.BF Dropper-Tensioning Spring Assembly is now available to resolve this problem for those experiencing it. This solution includes two carefully selected tension springs and two printed parts designed to fit onto your Dropper. The lower nut can be adjusted higher or lower on the die section to control how much extra downward force you are adding. It is recommended to add as little as possible additional tension, as too much force will increase wear by the case mouth on the dropper funnel below.

    The upper collar assembles around the brass weight section, and rests atop the set screw, which you may need to back out a little to allow the support required. Multiple positioning tabs allow you to find the right angle for positioning the springs, without interfering with nearby dies or powder dropper.

    The lower collar screws onto your die section, above the lock nut, and allows you to adjust its height to control the added downward force.

    The double spring system creates a balanced and symmetrical downward force, that allows for smooth function of the die. The extra downward pressure will ensure that the dropper follows the extracting case, overcoming any friction and preventing those occasional annoying extra bullets from falling.

    I sell quite a few Mr. Bullet Feeders and a common question is will they fit a 550 or can they fit with the Dillon powder check system, 21044, on my 650. Now they can by using this die to combine bullet seating and crimping in one station which frees up a station the Mr. BF needs.

    These dies are made by Lee Precision to DAA standards. These quality stainless steel dies produce quality ammunition. It will take a bit of monkey futzing around to get the adjustment correct but once calibrated correctly will produce consistent and precise quality ammunition.

    These dies include an O-ring lock machined into the nut which allows you to hand tighten only - and the die stays put! The die includes a finger adjustable floating bullet seater and are heat treated to ideal hardness then polished to a smooth finish.

    The Lee Undersizing Dies size the brass .002" under SAMI specifications to insure proper functioning in semi-automatic handguns.

    Just that one extra plus to be certain that pesky 9mm Luger case feeds into your chamber.

    I love my Dillon dies but never too proud to use a product that I feel helps me make better and reliable ammunition.




    Lee 9mm Luger Carbide Factory Taper Crimp Die

    Lee 9mm Luger Carbide Factory Taper Crimp Die

    $45

    OK, another new die I am using to replace my Dillon one. I find the round chamber checks much better with less rejected rounds. (You DO chamber check your match ammo, don’t you?)

    Carbide Factory Crimp Die sizes the cartridge while being crimped so every round will positively chamber freely with factory like dependability The adjusting screw quickly and easily sets the desired amount of crimp. Trim Length is not critical so this extra operation takes less time than it would if cases were trimmed and chamfered. A firm crimp is essential for dependable and accurate ammunition, as it eliminates the problems of poor ignition of slow burning magnum powders.




    Ammo Gauges




    Shockbottle 100 Round Ammo Gauge

    SB107

    9mm Luger, silver

    $165

    SB103

    .40SW, silver

    $165

    Note that only silver is available at this time.

    These chamber gauges are ideal for reloading and shooters who want to ensure better reliability of their ammo in chambering and extracting. They are machined from aircraft grade aluminum and hard anodized using S.A.M.M.I. spec's(May reject lead, moly, and long 40 loads). This chamber gauge is specifically designed to utilize a 100 round ammunition box as a "flip-tray", then can be flipped into an ammo box bullet down and ready for the range.

    Reliability starts with good ammo, and everyone who reloads understands what a fat case does to your time when it gets stuck in a barrel. Once you have had an ammo related jam, you will realize the time to gauge your ammo is worth any price. Now thanks to Shockbottle case gauges, there is no reason not to. It is fastest way to make sure your ammo won't cost you a match. It checks 100 rounds at a time, the fat ones stand out like a sore thumb and also lets you see those high primers and easily mark your brass.. CNC machined and finish-reamed to minimum chamber dimensions means, if it goes in the Shockbottle case gauge it will go in the chamber of your barrel. Made from aircraft aluminum to last.

    Load the gauge up with ammo, place an ammo box over the Shockbottle case gauge and flip. Put another box over and flip again if you want bullets-down. I tried this and it works GREAT!

    .223 Rem

    $55

    Anyone who reloads knows that practice ammo doesn't get the same TLC that match ammo does. I ALWAYS gauge my match ammo. At matches I see too many who don't and they have malfunctions that are not gun related but ammo related.

    Chamber checkers have been around a long time as has EGW. I first met them at US Nationals back in the late 1980's which tells you they must have good product to survive this long. I first started using the multi chamber checker for .40SW and have moved to 9mm Luger for my Open gun. These little beauties save time in the last process before boxing and labelling your match ammo. The price difference is little to a single gauge.

    EGW’s Chamber Checkers are machined from solid 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminum.

    While some companies use boring bars to make chamber checkers, EGW uses the actual Clymer reamers that are used to chamber barrels.

    Anodized matte black for durability.

    Walter from BC:

    Got my Dillon Square Deal parts yesterday at no charge and without any hassle, don't think I would buy any other reloading equipment unless its a Dillon. Thanks!


    Kelly from Alberta:

    Murray, thanks again for solving my Dillon parts problem. Your innovative approach and customer service first attitude in accommodating my request is a model for others to follow.


    Dave C.:

    Well, I have to say thanks for setting me up with that 550 press. WOW, what a difference! Not a single malfunction, every round cycled the gun flawlessly. I didn't think re-loading would make that much difference, but it does. This now changes my whole outlook on shooting!


    Stephen from BC:

    Thank you very much for ordering the primer feeder for me, and your valuable time arranging the delivery. The primer feeder is so efficient that reloading is no longer a boring job now.
