Which parts needed for manual weighing of powder charges for rifle loads on my 550C ?

Howdy folks. I've recently bought a new XL650 and 550C and will be setting them up as soon as a break in the work schedule allows.

The XL 650 will be setup with the case feeder and running my handgun pistol target ammo.


The 550C is what I intend to use for my various hunting rifle loads. I'd like to weight my powder charges manually offline, trickle them up to exact level and then pour through die into case.

Slower ? Sure, but I'll enjoy getting them exact to my target weights. It'll still be way more efficient doing precision rifle on the 550C than it was on my older single stage. The ability to have dedicated toolheads and index between stations will be a huge bonus for me.


What specific parts are needed for pouring the powder charge into the case so I don't have to remove the case from that station and do so offline ?

I've not bought my rifle dies, but I did buy Dillon's dies for my 9mm, 45acp, 44spcl/mag and 38spcl/mag that'll be used on the 650 with Dillon powder measures.

The hunting loads will be in .30'06 and .308Win initially....then adding .45/70 and 270WSM later on.

Apologies for my ignorance on the matter. I've yet to dig into the boxes and set anything up....just trying to get the needed gear ready for an upcoming week of vacation when I can spend some quality time with the new presses.

Thanks for any guidance with this....

Never mind.

Was growing old waiting on a reply.

Found out what I needed and have it on the way.
