Ever wonder roughly how many primers are left in the primer tube? Ever have problems with the primers feeding because the rod was to light and couldn't "push" the primers all the way down? This Primer Rod takes care of both of those problems.

Primer Count Indicators
This Primer Rod has lines at 100 primers, 75 primers, 50 primers and 25 primers and is accurate to ±1 primer. You will always know about how many are left in the primer tube. NO MORE GUESSING!

Positive Primer Feed
The Primer Rod is made from aluminum and weighs 0.52oz – just enough more than the original (0.22oz) to give positive primer feeding, even when the primer count gets low.

Works with Dillon Primer Alarm
This rod is the same length as the original black plastic rod, so it works perfectly with the Dillon primer alarm.

Primer Rod Holder
Also included is a Primer Rod Holder, so when you load primers into the tube, you have a convenient place to hang the Rod. CNC machined from aluminum. Just clamp it onto the Primer Housing immediately below the Dillon primer alarm. *

Fits Most Dillon Presses
Although the photo shows the Primer Rod and Holder installed on a Dillon RL 550B press, it can be attached to the primer feed tube on the Squared Deal 'B', RL 550B, XL 650, RL 1050 and Super 1050 presses.

Customer Feedback
"The Primer Rod has the weight necessary to push all the primers from the tube. Never had a problem with the plastic one until about a month ago when it started leaving the last 4 to 6 primers in the tube. Your Primer Rod made that problem go away."

Not A Necessity, But A Nice, Inexpensive AdditionHave for each of my 550s. Like it better than the OEM, and for the price it is well worth the change. Written by Carl C Ibsen on Mon 12 Nov 2018 11:14:22 PM GMT
Great ImprovementI have been using this rod and hanger for a couple of years now. Great improvement over the plastic rod that comes with the press. Adds weight for better primer feeding without being to heavy that could cause primer strikes. The hanger is also well thought out as a place to set the rod while refilling primers.
