    Saw an ad in the paper this morning for a "Dylan PL550 shell loader, $200" spelled just that way...

    By the phone prefix, I knew the person who placed the ad lived 30-40miles away....

    I called, a woman answered and I asked just exactly what was this "Dylan"... she responded that it had been her son's.... one of his many hobbies that he stuck with for a few months and never touched again. She then warned me that it would "only" load pistol and rifle shells, not shotgun shells....

    I made the trip first thing this morning to check it out.... obviously, it was a Dillon RL550.

    Came with 5 sets of dies, 223, 25-06, 30-06, 45 ACP and 30 Carbine.

    5 caliber conversion kits, 223, 30-06, 45 ACP, 30 Carbine, 9MM, 38Spec

    6 tool heads

    6 primer tubes

    A Dillon balance beam scale

    A large brass primer flipper marked "NATO Spec"

    Various primer pocket and case mouth tools.

    A bullet puller

    The Optional zippered Dillon press cover

    Approx 800 Winchester 9MM 115 FMJ bullets (don't even own a 9MM)

    And some other stuff that I don't remember off the top of my head...

    Maybe I did okay for $200!

    I did have to unbolt it from the bench though....:D

    When this hobby loses interest w/ you, I'll take it off your hands for $100 cash money! Until then, congrats on the acquisition!
