yup, had this press since day one. But the cardboard catch box finally disintegrated. So I made a major upgrade. Old unused transmission funnel and some 3/4 heater hose. Top of the line now.....

Nice tape rack. Everything has to be a multitasker.

Speaking of multitasking, if you change the end of that hose you can use the setup to help with constipation. :sick:

It just keeps getting better. Dr. Proctology got me to thinking. The plastic funnel is all hard, and sharp, no self respecting practitioner would use that. So I replaced it a nice soft rubber one, FloTool at Pep Boys, $4.

So being new to my Dillon 550B and only having loaded about 1000rds on it. Why aren't yall using the included completed bullet shoot that comes with the press? I've only had 1 out of 1000 rounds hop out of the chute.

The old 550's Pre-B didn't have a chute, nor a positive powder drop return spring. In fact we were still loading 3FFF black powder back then....

Two points for reloading ingenuity!

Now someone show me one so that catches the used primers without the suicide jumpers that land on the carpet.....LOL

Love the Homemade stuff and have several on my machines.. 550 guys there's a guy in Texas selling an extended primer slide with a bearing.

Very pleased with it and the primer slide bar goes back to the same place every time check it out on E Bay.
