The Dillon XL 650 press has a very long and narrow Failsafe Bracket. If something jams the powder bar, the Failsafe Bracket can be easily bent. Even under normal operation, the Failsafe Bracket flexes upward slightly at the very bottom of the ram's downward motion. This flex can be aggravated if the wing nut on the Failsafe Rod is adjusted too tightly. Either way, this can result in the powder bar not returning fully to the home position each and every cycle of the press … thus affecting powder charge weight consistency.

The Solution
This FailSafe Bracket is machined from 1/4″ thick 303 Stainless Steel. It is very strong and rigid … ensuring that your powder bar returns to the same position every time. Plus it features a brass shoulder washer that is held in place with set screws. This ensures that the shoulder washer can't disengage from the Failsafe Bracket!

FailSafe Bracket Kit Includes:
Stainless Steel FailSafe Bracket (replaces #18726 or #13367)
Brass Shoulder Washer (replaces #18086)
1/4-28x1-3/8″ Cap Head Screw (replaces #14138)
10-24x5/8″ Cap Head Screw (replaces #13964)
10-24x3/16″ Set Screw

The Answer to My DreamThanks for your timely shipping. I ordered online Monday 10 June and received the brackets in Wednesday mail!
This bracket is the answer to my dream of a better way. I bought my first 650 shortly after they were introduced. Many rounds later I have 3 650s and consider the powder return apparatus as a problem I’ve struggled with many times.
The new kits were installed on Wednesday night!

Awesome DeviceSo I get this for a birthday present and get her all bolted in. The press is fully seized up. Just like a seized alternator will do to a motor! But wait! I call in and get instant tech support from my buddy Lee. Not the 1st time I have called Lee, he is awesome. Turns out I had the fail safe rod improperly installed. He knew that right away! Even verified it with Dillon. Properly reinstalled the rod and the strange noises the xl650 had been making also went away. Now the press works great. Even better, I have a better understanding of how the powder measure mechanism operates! 5 STARS all around Written by M Finkel on Wed 6 Feb 2019 1:22:56 AM GMT
Another Innovative Uniquetek product!I wasn't sure I needed this kit but I'm a sucker for innovation so I thought I would give it a try, hoping to gain more powder charge "repeatability." Man, what a difference! This Aftermarket Fail-Safe bracket kit is solid and eliminates the OEM Fail-Safe bracket flex, while smoothing out a very jerky bell-crank motion. The end result is improved powder drops and a better overall hand loading experience. I can't wait for the next innovation! Well done Uniquetek.
