    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.

    Micrometer is a Plus

    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.
