These kits help you get the most from your Dillon reloading machine.
As the Shellplate bolt is tigtened there is additional friction
between the shellplate and the press. The shellpate bearing
overcomes this friction. This stabilzes the shellplate and reduces
runout. This will dampen the motion of the shellplate, reducing
powder spills as it moves into position. You will also experience a
better feel for each operation. Decapping, priming, and seating each
have their unique feel. You'll know when a primer isn't right. With
the reduced runout, case overall length will be more consistent.
The result is a better operating press, consistent ammo, and
increased run rates.
Lubricate the bearing with a little grease, don't pack it like a wheel bearing. If the grease is collecting gunpowder on your press that's too much. We use Mobil 1 or Slide Guide.
We used to sell the oil-lite thrust washer kit. Feedback from our customers told us it wasn't a good value. The our needle bearing has a greater range of bearing preload making it much easier to tune to your likeing. We still have a pile of these oil-lite washers. If you want to try one send us a message before you order, we'll add it to your order for 50 cents (fits 550 or 650). Then you can decide.
Our Low Mass Detent Ball for the Dillon RL 450, RL 550, XL 650 and
SL 900 is tough as nails. This phenolic ball is super hard, smooth
and lightweight. It's approximately 7 times lighter than the factory
steel ball and every bit as tough.
The low mass detent ball has less momentum when it locks up with the
shellplate. The material also absorbs vibrations much better than
the steel ball. This detent ball is highly abrasion resistant and
will not be cut or scared by the shellplate. These are industrial
grade and used when strength and abrasion resistance is required.
To install, remove the shellplate, pluck out the steel ball, clean any debris out of the channel and drop our Low Mass Detent Ball into place. Then reinstall the shellplate.
Some folks have cut half a coil off of the detent spring to reduce pressure. We recommend giving our low mass detent ball a try, before modifying your press.
The camming pin bearing replaces the camming pin on your XL 650 or SL 900. This is a sealed bearing, as such, no maitenence is required. It smoothly rides the case insert slide cam. You won't need to lubricate the cam to prevent wear, resulting in a cleaner press. To install remove the locknut with a 9/16" wrench, unscrew the orginal pin and screw in the camming pin bearing. No other tools are required, just your fingers. Each half revolution of the camming pin bearing is .020" of adjustment. Before you tighten the locknut ensure the bearing rides square on the case insert slide cam.
Our Ultimate and Premium kits come with an assortment of screws,
knobs and washers specific to your press.
Large knobs fit over the nut of the powder adjustment bolt. This makes adjusting the powder drop a snap. The included label indicates which way to turn for more powder and you won't need a wrench. It may take a day or two for the plastic to form to the nut, or you can warm the plastic a little before installation to speed up the process.
Thumbscrews are installed on the powder measure clamp. You will find not needing to reach for an allen wrench while adjusting the case bell makes the process go faster. Nylon washers are installed under this these thumbscrews. To stay tight they must sit flat on the powder measure clamp. These will need to be fitted, use sandpaper, a file, or grinder to create a small bevel on one side.
Depending on your press model you may receive a primer alarm screw, Dillon recently changed the design of the primer alarm and it no longer accepts a machine screw. If this is the case, repurpose the screw. You will find that it fits as a tension screw on your Blade-Tech holster.
Thumbscrews are also provided for the case insert slide cam (650) and the die clamp screw (650 & 1050)
No re-adjustment of dies is needed with any of our kits!
