550 Series

We spent some time looking at reviews and reading the forums to find out what we could do to improve this kit. A show stopping problem has been how thin the webbing is between the sprocket fingers. This makes the sprockets fragile and fingers break off, but not our sprockets. We have more metal than any other product on the market. Our sprocket is the strongest available for use with a bearing!


Ultimate Shellplate Bearing Kit for Dillon RL 550 B/C $35.95 Free shipping in U.S.A.

Ultimate Shellplate Bearing Kit Dillon RL 550 B/C replaces the index sprocket with a modified sprocket that has the room required to install the shellplate bearing kit.  Run out is eliminated and this results in more consistent ammo. The bearing kit smoothes the action of the press, reducing powder spillage and increasing tactile feel while priming. Priming operation will be more consistent. Thumbscrews replace bolts to speed up the adjustment of the press. Thumbscrews for 3 powder measures and 3 powder measure adjustment knobs. This kit works with both new and old style powder measures.

The extra length shellplate bolt allows us to provide you with a robust index sprocket. Less metal is removed to make room for the bearing. Most 450/550s need this extra length bolt.

Very detailed and complete instructions are included with the kit. If you have any problems send me an email and I will call to help you finish the setup.

Squib Rods

Squib Rod - Solid Brass $20.95. Limited Run

These squib rods are precision turned from solid brass stock. The rod will fit well into the barrel allowing the full force to be directed at the stuck squib (bullet).

These rods are heavy enough that you may not need a hammer, no need for that extra weight in your range bag?

Don't let a squib ruin your day at the range. Every USPSA, IDPA shooter, and Range Officer should have these in their kit.

We made these a few years ago and we received a lot of requests for these, so why not? We started up production again.

One size fits 9mm/.357/.38/.40 and up, for up to 7" barrels.
