Opinions on non-Dillon branded aftermarket parts?

Recommended Posts

I am interested in knowing what you all think about all these aftermarket parts made by other people than Dillon for the Dillon presses.

Not die sets from other brands that fit, but case & bullet feeders, clone stands, improved powder adjustment knobs, toolhead improvements, reversible toolheads (.38 special to .357 or .44 special to magnum), etc...?

What your experience is: yuck, meh, great?

Thanks :)

I run a needle bearing under my shell plate bolt on my 650. I also run funnel/adapters on my spent primer cup, Mr. Bulletfeeders, and Uniquetek micrometer powder knobs and baffles on my 650 and 1050. All of these are great improvements in my book.

How good is the powder meter? I always struggle during weight adjustments, especially when I want to test batches in powder increment. Nightmare. Thanks!

It is fantastic. Works exactly as advertised.

I am very interested in their toolhead clamp kits. These OAL variations do aggravate me quite a bit.
