I get that. Problem is that a new Dillon cost $230 or so more then the LCT. Most people view the difference between $350 to $580 as a pretty big jump.

Did the Unique Tek powder baffle help very much?

Stay away from the Hornady LNL for 40 S&W. I load .380, 9mm, 40 S&W and 45ACP. The LNL is OK for others but when you get to the case and bullet feeders in 40 it sucks, engineered all wrong for that size.

It made the 550 work good regardless of powder hopper fullness. So for me it was not a big deal.

Indy, you are going to hurt someone's feelings calling their equip choice "junk". I prefer quality challenged or economically adequate.
