New Accessories for my Dillon 550 reloading press!

Couple third party accessories for my old Dillon 550 reloading press. First up is the new Double Alpha Academy mini case feeder! I’ve been wanting the case feeder add-on forever, but the official Dillon powered one is over $400 now. But this one is only 150 bucks! It borrows heavily from the Lee Loadmaster setup. Pretty easy to install although if you have a ‘C’ model, or an old original 550 like mine, you have to modify one piece to fit properly. Easy job for a dremel. If you have a ‘B’ model press, the part snaps right on. The other accessory is one I had about a decade ago, but lost a few parts to, so I just ordered a new one. It’s the RCBS Bullet Feeder die! Pics below. I’ll make a short video in a day or two that shows off the parts working when running the press. The case feeder especially is fun to watch in a kind of Rube Goldberg Contraption kind of way!
