  1. Ruger is very good a customer support. If you call them on Monday they may send you one free.
  2. I have a case feeder and a bullet feeder on my Dillon 75&650. Both work very good but to use the bullet feeder you need to give up a die position and if I am correct the 550 only has 4 to start with. The Mr Bullet feeder that I use can only use jacket or poly coated bullets, greasy lead bullets will gum up the workings. Don’t buy the aftermarket case feeder because it tends to jam a lot. The one from Dillon is very dependable.
  3. Got what I needed, Sedalia Dave is sending me some. Should have them for Holloween. Isn't it great the way the "Cowboy Way" works around here. NCD
  4. I do some cowboy reenacting and I use a 357 revolver for it. I only reload 44-40 for cowboy shooting and I need some fake bullets to put into my belt loops on my reenacting rig which has 357 loops. I need about 15 red poly coated bullets in brass or nickel cases. The reason for red is because when I am asked why my bullets are red I respond with “you see I reuse my bullets and the red is the blood from the last guy I shot” Adults get a good laugh and the kids usually get a horrified look on there faces. It is all it good fun so no one gets hurt. The cartridges I need can’t have primers or powder in them and they are strictly for show. I would be willing to pay for them and the shipping. If you would be willing to do this please let me know. NCD
  5. They also said that it will cost about $200.
  6. I got some more information on this device. It only works with small PP and will be out for sale by the holidays.
  7. Anyone have any more info on the new Primer Pro by Double Alpha. besides what's in the video?
  8. OLG I had been trying some silicone and while it did help a little it did not solve the problem. The simple spring from a pen did the trick. NCD
  9. I have a Mr. Bullet Feeder on my Dillon 750 and it was giving me problems. The hopper that turns the bullet point up was working fine but the die that sets the bullet on the case had problems. Not every time but more often than I would like the seating die would not come all the way back down after it fed a bullet onto a case. Sometimes it would feed 2 bullets one on top of each other, but more problematic was when it would wait until the shell plate rotated and then drop the second bullet on top of a case filled with powder. This would make some of the powder spill out of the case. It would have to be removed and set aside until I could get the primer out or put it back into station 2. I was talking to a friend of mine that had the same problem and his solution was to take a spring out of a ballpoint pen and connect it between the seating die C clip on the MBF at station 3 and the C clip on the Dillon seating die at station 4. With a little adjustment this fix worked great. The little extra pull from the spring keeps the MBF die from staying up and dropping the second bullet. Isn’t it always the simplest solutions that make the biggest difference? Here is a picture of the spring in place.
  10. I use Promo most of the time. What is the weight of the load of Red Dot that you use for this load?
  11. SOLD Up for sale is a Dillon XL650 metallic cartridge reloader. It was factory refurbished 2 years ago and has been my backup press so it has hardly been used. Comes with 5 position tool head, complete Dillon powder measurer and an aftermarket auto case feeder with a large and small disk. It is set up for small primers with the parts to convert to large primers, but no pickup tubes. $550 + shipping. Local pick up in Western NY.
  12. I'll take the middle one with 47" to center hole. Can you take paypal?
