Anyone have any that they recommend?

Some of these make sense. Maybe they aren't necessary.

I'm not really having any problems with my stock 550B or looking to spend any money. Just being curious.

Been reloading with my 550B for over 20 years and I can't see a need for any of the items posted. However, a casefeeder might be a nice add-on......

Actually, I really like the micrometer. I've run calibration curves for each of my powders. It lets me go from load to load by just setting the dial, run a case to check powder charge and I'm loading. Do I need it? No. Is it convenient? Yes. The other two, I would not waste my $$ on.

I put the UniqueTek micrometer and powder baffle plus added a Redding Competition bullet seater to the toolhead for .223. I run several different load and bullet combinations using H335. The dials make it really easy to change set-ups.

Yep its true, you don't really need them, but then I can only shoot one gun at a time, and I have more than one gun.
