Ever wonder roughly how many primers are left in the primer tube? Ever have problems with primers not feeding because the rod was too 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 provide more positive primer feeding … even when the primer count gets low.

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

Primer Rod Holder — NEW DESIGN!
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. *
This new design in narrower to provide more clearance between it and the powder measure on XL 650 and XL 750 presses!

Fits Most Dillon Presses
Although the photo shows the Primer Rod and Holder installed on a Dillon RL 550B press, it can be used with all Dillon primer feed tubes including: Squared Deal 'B', RL 550 (all models), XL 650, XL 750, RL 1050, Super 1050 and RL 1100 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."

Very Nice to Have.As we all know, the stock Dillon piece of plastic that comes with your press is very much lacking in any weight to actually keep downward pressure on the primers. I got this for my new 750 machine and found it to be a very nice addition. I like that it has a bracket that attaches to the primer tube so when you remove it, you can just hang it there, refill your primers and drop it right back in. The numbers on the side indicating 100, 75, 50, and 25 primers left are engraved into the rod and I just painted them different colors so I could make them out easier. It's a nice addition to my new 750 machine. Written by Sonny Ftr on Tue 3 Dec 2019 1:40:36 AM GMT
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.
