    There are no serial numbers on Dillon 650/550 presses.

    What did ya pay for the 650 setup?

    Also if ya want to see some of the mods I've made to my pair of 650 presses just let me know.

    There are a few aftermarket parts that make using them a lot easier.

    It is the older version as it is about the same age. The grease for the ram and the actuator arm may be dried up and gummy.

    Sorry about the delayed response. All I have done is open the box and look in, nothing has been unpacked except the primer feed to get the leaking battery out. Other things got in the way and I closed the box back up and put it in a corner for another day. Thanks MM I was planning on getting in touch with you when I start setting it up. I got the number off the bar code label. Probably nowhere near a SN, oh well.

    You might check with Dillon of the primer check...they may replace it outright at no charge. Never hurts to find out.

    Electronics only have a one year warranty through Dillon.

    20190825_170531.jpg I just added a shelving unit to my press setup which is a Dillon 550.

    The bottom shelf hold some bullets some Gunpowder and my reloading scale as well as to Folgers coffee cans full of empty clean Brass.

    Middle Shelf has some empty ammo boxes 3/4 boxes of bullets to more folders cans and my Brown & Sharpe calipers.

    The top shelf holds Bunches of empty ammo cans Folgers brass cans and two tool heads with dies and powder measure.

    The Architects lamp is mounted on a bracket I made to raise it up off the table top so that I can move it to wherever I need to buy swinging it and adjusting.

    On the bench top there's a container of 9 mm brass and a box with the 2000 rounds of 45 brass that's been processed a new shipment.

    On the far right is my Gunsmithing Vise for minor things to do two pistols and the checkbook which paid for all this.

    One more thing about my reloading setup the picture in the upper right hand corner is Mission planning for a bomber raid on Munich Germany during World War II.
