    Bear with me here. On the Dillon auto powder measure for a 450, there's a little white nylon bushing that fits around the tube that your powder drops from, that also serves to stabilize the powder drop as it moves up and down. Presumably, my dog has eaten this priceless little bushing. Now the powder measure wiggles and feels sloppy, and falls off when I pull the handle down.

    I can't find this part anywhere, anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks all,
    Pat

    I think I'm going to have to. I just ripped my reloading room apart for the 4th time... no joy. Thanks.

    Most likely, they'll send you one for free.

    Something like this, call the manufacturer first.

    I couldn't find something, and Dillon sent me another one free. Before I got it, I found mine, and I called them up, but was too late to stop it. I told them I would send it back and they said to keep it, I'd need it sooner or later anyway.
    Two years after I bought my SD they came out with a better plastic for some of the plastic parts, and I found them in the mail one day.
    Dillon are some of the good guys. They ain't as inexpensive as they once was, but they still deliver the real deal.

    Cool. I hope they ask for the date on my receipt, it's in the early 80s. :D

    I bought a 450 second hand that had never been opened. Had to be 20+ years old. Powder measure leaked around the slide. They sent me a new style 550 measure and 6 of the 550 powder funnels free.

    It took less than 60 seconds for me to call, speak to a human being, and for the gentleman to collect my information and send me the part. And people wonder why we drink the blue kool-aid. :)

    anyone else notice that their number is 223-4570?

    Did you swap powders when you lost it? If so you might check and see if it fell into the container when you cycled the bar empty.
