Description

DILLON RL 550C PROGRESSIVE RELOADER – This Dillon 550C does not come with a caliber conversion at this price.

The Dillon RL550C is the most versatile reloading machine in the Dillon Precision Products line.  It will accommodate the widest variety of cartridges from 32 ACP up to 338 Lapua, 416 Rigby, and 460 Weatherby.

The “C” designation indicates a significant design change. The upper link arm pivot pins are now threaded in place, and have a grease groove around the pin that connects with a lube hole on the end of the pin.  You can use a needle fitting on a grease gun to lubricate the upper pivot pins now.

Note: Dies are not included with this machine.

BENEFITS

The RL550C has a manually indexed shell plate making it easier to master the various steps of reloading. Manual indexing also gives the operator greater control over each individual step in the loading process. Caliber changes are simple and require fewer parts than other machines which makes it less expensive to convert to another cartridge.

CASE FEEDER

An automatic case feed system similar to the one used on Dillon’s commercial-grade Super 1050 machine and the XL 650, is now available for YOUR RL 550B or C! You simply dump a quart of cases into the hopper and turn it on. The motor-driven disc fills the case feed tube, a micro-switch shuts off the motor when the tube is full, and automatically restarts it when low. This case feeder only works for the handgun calibers listed under the case feed caliber conversions. Rifle cases are too tall to feed with this system.

HOW IT WORKS
Most shooters realize that reloading is the most economical way to enjoy their sport, but many shooters are unaware of just how simple it is to reload. In fact, Dillon’s RL 550C is the easiest progressive loader in the world to learn to reload with. How can we make that statement? Simple. Since all of the reloading steps are performed with a stroke of the handle, there is less to remember (or forget) than with an old-fashioned single-station press. Skeptical? Just watch this short video to see how easy it really is.

NO ADJUSTMENTS

Of all the steps in reloading, the adjustment of the reloading dies is the most critical. With the Dillon RL 550C’s removable toolhead, your dies will stay in perfect adjustment. There’s no need to screw them in and out even when changing calibers! The RL 550C functions perfectly with any standard 7/8” x 14 die set. There’s less to go wrong, less to remember.

RIFLE AND PISTOL
The Dillon RL 550C will produce match-quality ammo for over 160 different rifle and pistol calibers. The RL 550C comes complete with one caliber conversion. It is also possible to buy the 550C reloader with no caliber conversion included.

Dies sold separately.

  • If you are loading more than 500 rounds per reloading session, then the RF-100 Electric Primer Filler is an accessory well worth considering.
