    sellersm beat me to the punch. That is THE video I always point newbie 550 reloaders to. Or people who are unsure about how complicated reloading is.

    You can use that video to set your press up. But I seem to recall he puts the linkage rod for the powder measure in from the WRONG side, double check that part against the manual. Barring that.... great set of videos (there are 5 at 10 minutes each).

    Great choice!

    Just keep the priming system clean and you will be happy with it.

    That is the advice I was going to give. I bought (wasted money) the Dillon DVD to set up mine but this YouTube video was more helpful.

    If you ever run a Lee, you'll understand why it's the Yugo of the reloading world compared to Dillon. Congrats, great machine.
