Best Reloader EverReview by Daddy Lew
Overall Rating
I have had my RL550B for about 5 years now and it has been the best reloader I have ever owned. I sold my RCBS and bought several different caliber "heads" for all my pistols. I load mostly .45s and .44Mag, but I also play with .380, .38, .357. Never have had an issue with the machine, all my mistakes have been 'Pilot Error'. Would definitely recommend any Dillon product for reloading. (Posted on 3/19/2020)
33 Years and still truckingReview by Ross

Best machine ever! My wife surprised me with an RL550B for my birthday in 1985 or 1986. I have since loaded thousands and thousands of pistol and rifle rounds and have never had anything, other than a couple minor issues which were my fault, done to it. I have never had it refurbished and it still runs great.
I am the Senior Range Safety Officer at a shooting range and I highly recommend Dillon products to anyone who asks or who is looking for a good press. Just Awesome! (Posted on 4/13/2019)

Have two Dillons 550 for probably 20+ years. Parts have always been replaced without any hassle and have been shipped without any cost.

Technical has always been available and always have the answer. Thanks for your professionalism.

Great Product and Customer ServiceReview by Dave

I have used my Dillon RL550 for over 30 years, have loaded tens of thousands of rifle and pistol rounds and it still works great. In 30 years I've only had one problem, with the primer feeder, and Dillon sent me the new part for free. Like all loaders, the setup is the most important part, once you set it up properly, just crank out the rounds. Great product from a great manufacturer with wonderful customer service.

My wife purchased my RL550B in 1986. I have loaded 10's of thousands of rifle and pistol rounds over the years without any issues. I have been considering sending it back to be refurbished and tuned up but it just keeps on cranking out the rounds. I love this machine and the service I've received from Dillon over the years. I have broken a couple of minor parts over the years and when I called for a replacement, they would not accept payment. Shipped them free at no cost to me. Recommend Dillon to anybody thinking of buying a press. Gotta love it!! (Posted on 1/22/2018)

I was given a used 550, it was missing some parts, called Dillon, and they talked me through the whole press and sent all the missing parts, great people. I have had 5 different presses over the years, and this is the best there is, don't wast your money, just get a Dillon! (Posted on 4/22/2017)

Wonderful machineReview by Rockbotm
Overall Rating
Purchased this RL550B probably 10 years ago to reload .223 AR ammo. Immediately loaded 2000 then purchased many other caliber conversions. To date I have probably loaded over 200,000 rounds mostly 9MM and 45ACP.
The few times I have had to call Dillon for technical help they have assisted me while on the phone. Where new parts were needed they were shipped Priority at no charge.
Why buy anything else.
