    I'm in the middle of a 1000 round run of 9mm on my 550B. This stupid little cube fell out and I have none in my spare parts kit! Anybody ever find these at Lowes or Home Depot?

    Dillon will hook you up.

    If they won’t help you let me know I might have one lying around.

    I will call Dillon on Monday. I need to just send my press in for a rebuild.

    Just 'borrow' one from your other powder measure setups until Dillon comes through. o_O

    What do u think I'm rich? One press and one powder measure. I'm not calling guys from the range on a Saturday and ask if they have a b.s. part like that. I've got plenty of 9mm loaded. I'll call Dillon and get some sent out when they get to it.

    ...figured you must be if you can afford to reload today. That was an observation by @xTerpx a few days ago. (...something about a money-pit) :headscratch::D:faint:

    I'm extremely overpaid for what I do and I am feeling the pain just getting started. :)

    Hell, I balked at the $25 primer flip tray from Dillon (though this thing is SOLID and could be used defensively lol It will definitely outlast me, though, compared to the $8 plastic jobbers).

    Scales and check measures and new bass that cost as much as full cases I bought before the virus run, tumblers and media, calipers and check gauges, primer tubes, brass sorters and roller handles (have to toss in some luxury items), etc, etc, etc...

    ...and of course a whole new list is required when I graduate to rifle and the need for case preparation...and other pistol calibers that use large primers (and additional case feeder plates).

    It will feel good when the only outlay is for bullets, primers, powder, and the occasional brass...much less painful (though the price of primers is BS right now). :)

    It's a consumable part. They wear with time.

    My supplies were put away a few years ago. Besides bullets I don't need to buy anything for a few years. 50k large pistol primers and 45k small pistol primers on hand. Im down to 8k 45acp projectiles and 10k 9mm projectiles. As far as powder goes I'm good for my life time.

    Always check ur local craigslist and gun trader sites. I've picked up a lot of stuff that way. I got my Dillon 550B locally for $300.00. That included 16lbs. of powder, RCBS 750 scale and a tumbler.

    What year was that? Sounds like a wife selling her husband's gear when he wasn't looking.

    Actually it was the widow of an old member of my range. He stuck a G30 in his mouth.

    That's no lie! I offered her $450 and she flat out refused! I bought more supplies she found later. I already had a G30 at the time so I didnt enquire.

    I have gone through a few sets of the Delrin bushings they use on the SD’s but have bell crank cubes that have been through more than 100,000 cycles. You use lots of extruded powders?

    if the pin slipped out because the edges are rounded, you might get by until the new one gets there by flipping it over and using the side that was against the powder bar and tighten up on the bowed washer a little more, just don’t bind it.

    Twenty minutes on hold and Dillon hung up on me.
