    What is a good trick to disable primer feed on Dillon 650? I see switches on sale remove cam but is there a quick easy fix to stop primers?
    Thanks

    Just take off the ramp on the side that advances the primers. It's one screw.

    That’s what I do. That swing away cam is neat but just removing the cam is so easy I’ve never been motivated enough to get one

    I've been teaching a couple of people to reload and the primer stop switch is a real time saver. MUCH quicker than removing the cam.

    Then replace the provided screw with a very long one, threaded in from the other side. Experiment with some vinyl tubing pressed over the exposed end of the screw to get a friction fit with the screw and ramp. Depending on the tubing, you may need to increase the diameter of the screw a bit by wrapping it with some wire. Now you can just pull the ramp off anytime you want with no tools.

    ETA: You can also use threaded rod and secure it on the back side with a nut or just use loctite on it (what I did).

    I have taken out one screw before but want something faster easier. I thought bout longer screw from other side to but I might look into it more. I like gadgets so I think switch is way to go. Looks like Dillon would include that and the bottle to catch primers as extra you could buy upgrades.

    He makes some great stuff. I have one of his 550 B/C Primer Track Bearing Plate W/Ball Bearing kits and it's saved me a chitload of frustration.

    Thanks Jmorris I don’t have 3D printer or access to one to old school I guess.

    Thanks
