Must have productFor anyone who reloads multiple calipers or even powders the micrometer is a must have. I have a list of powders, grains, bullet type, saved on my phone, so I just save what calibrations I need. Dialing in loads on the Dillon has never been easier or more accurate than when using the micrometer. Won’t run my press without it Written by Lucio V on Sun 20 Feb 2022 2:31:31 PM GMT
Super New UpgradeII have been using Dillon products since 1986. I have changed the bolt head adjustment for another that had a large dial on it. It was okay, but not a sensitive as I liked. I've used micrometers since I was 17 and started to learn machining from my future father-in-law, miss that man a lot!
The sensitivity of this new device really improves the powder porer tremendously.
Not the easiest to install, but not the hardest either. Took me a few minutes to get it set, and now I can't wait until my budget allows me to buy 3 more for the other 3 caliabers that I load for pistol competitions.
Adding this to my Dillon 1100 takes it a set above all the other attempts at improving the sensitivity of the powder measuring bar.
Like I said, I'll soon be buying 3 more.

Instructions are great, BUTI have installed four of these units on Extra Small through Magnum bars. They are a great improvement without question. The one problem I had was the quick setting thread locker. I think a slower setting version would be an improvement. I have had two of the four set up before I had everything just like it should be. Perhaps I am getting slow in old age (83) but I suspect others have had the same problem. Written by James T Collins on Fri 16 Oct 2020 5:34:51 PM GMT
