Lee Powder Drum Measure on 550B

I recently bought a Lee Powder Drum Powder Measure. I tried mounting it on an old 45 acp Lee Powder Through Die and found it would not cycle the measure in my 550B. I have read the suggestions about putting the locking ring under the tool head but that would not cycle it far enough either. Will a new Lee Powder Through Die resolve the issue? I understand the threaded portion is only .10" longer. That does not seem long enough? Any thoughts?

I had to give up on getting help from Lee and Dillon. I emailed both asking for help. Lee said they could not guarantee the new die would work with a Dillon press. Dillon dismissed the problem as they don't test other manufacturers' equipment, etc.. So I resorted to my lathe and made a die that functions correctly. I though it could not have been their first encounter with this problem. I had read a lot of praise for Dillon; and Lee has a good reputation, but they dropped the ball on this one. So much for "World Class Customer Service" on the part of both manufacturers.

That's a pretty far reach asking Dillon to adapt their product for competitor accessories. Just my opinion.
