Dillon upgrades......

First upgrade project was on my SquareD, never liked the small completed ammo bin, rigged up a much bigger bin and support shelf underneath for the weight.


Second upgrade project was my 550B, she's over 20 years old and needed a little TLC.


First issue was the primer system, added a JW Systems bearing slide plate....


Then a shell plate bearing kit.....


Finally some new springs and primer seating cup from Dillon....


Both are now ready for action and should run for years to come.


41 Mags rule, Baers rock!

Presses look good, report of the effectiveness of the upgrades in use.

I tried the shell plate bearing kit and the low mass ball. I pulled the ball out with a few hundred rounds. It was hard to index. The bearing was ok at first. I found it very susceptible to dirt, namely H110 powder. The little that slips out between the powder bar and powder dispenser body makes shell plate bind. I wish I could fix the H110 "drip".

Nice Upgrades...........nt
