    Well my RL550b has been ordered! I got the strong mount, primer tubes, spare parts kit, but skipped on the bullet tray and empty case bins. I have spent enough for one day. The only thing left is a tumbler, bullets, primers, powder. Start on my bench this weekend!! I think I'm seeing blue!

    Go Blue and you will never see RED and do this:banghead:

    That was for my brother a L-O-L fainboy:neener:

    I love my Dillon 550B. When you do decide to add another caliber get the Top Notch package which includes:

    Caliber Conversion Kit
    Dies
    Case Gage
    Deluxe Quick-Change Kit

    AWESOME. Remember you won't see RED:banghead:

    Congrats on the new machine. Reloading is very rewarding for me no matter what color it is. I have been reloading pistol cartridges for about 6 years now and I just bought a used MEC shotshell reloader. So I'm in the same boat as you, waiting for it to get here!

    Just to be clear about the color of the press. They all are nice. My brother has Red I have Blue and Green.
    I am sure you will enjoy the 550B.

    GaHunter, you asked about powder and bullets. Please let us know what calibers you will be loading for to start that conversation.

    Thanks. I'm starting with 40s&w. My wife will be picking out her EDC Monday. Once she finds the right hand gun I will also add that to my list. I want to get a couple months under my belt before I start with my 7mm RM, 300 WM, I may also add 44 rem mag. I have a Ruger 44 rem mag rifle that my grandparents gave me for my 7th b-day many moons ago. All that's down the road. I have been studying Lyman 49th, Hornady manual, and Lee's manual. Any ideas would be great also!!

    Nice! No better press out there in my opinion! Great choice! Blue Kool-aid tastes so good. :D I load from .380 to 7.62x39 on mine. Customer service is top notch even when you bought the press used like I did. Congrats!
