This powder check is amazingly effective. We run an ammo manufacturing shop running 2000 rounds per day. Thank you Double Alpha for this great product.

Best powder checker that I’ve ever used. Highly recommend.

Purchased two of these items, works GREAT, on first run had a media pin stuck in primer hole, the new powder checker caught the problem. Takes a little bit to get set up, but once set runs flawless . Will purchase again for my other presses.

Would have been five stars except if you live in a dry climate the plastic tip causes static cling and powder comes out of the case and than drops. You can used the other end but than it is a small tip area and seems to push into the powder. Should have made the tip out of brass to get rid of this issue (wish you would offer the tip as as a after market part you can buy and replace the plastic tip). You can try to used static guard and spray the tip or dryer sheets but neither one work for me.

Easier to setup than the Dillon powder check. Really light the bright red LED with the audio alarm. No false alarms if no brass case at the powder check station. Cost less then the Dillon too.

I received the Magnetic Powder Check die and it is well made. I tested it on a single stage press and it works fine. I am sure it will be great on my Mark Seven Apex 10 when I receive the press.

Great product easy to set and reliable. I installed mine on a Hornady AP had to modify by shorting a couple threads.

Great product, works flawlessly. I have a Dillon XL1100 with the Dillon powder check, not happy with it. The Double Alpha unit is far superior.

I'm using mine on a Dillon 650 for 300 blackout and no powder spillage at all. I also converted mine to a direct plug in power source so never have to worry about a battery. It uses a 6VDC and 11A battery and found a 6VDC and 10A power supply on Amazon.

DAA Magnetic Powder Check
Die optimale Lösung für die sichere Munitionsherstellung, kein zu wenig, kein zu viel Pulver in der Hülse!! Einfache Handhabung und sicher!!

Compared to the Dillon Power Check the DAA Magnetic Powder Check was a breeze to calibrate. I like the DAA so much I've sold my Dillon PC and plan on purchasing three more DAA for each of my other tool heads. The bright red LED addition to the audio alarm is a plus.

Worked great on 40 s&w cases but had to add a spacer to adjust 9mm cases to activate alarm with no powder charge

Works great one less thing to possibly make a mistake on.

This is a great idea, very easy to set up. I believe they are 'almost' there, but not quite. The problem is the plunger (I have only tested the pistol plunger) has a tendency to catch on the push rod. It binds as the rod is raised, so even if there is no shell in the holder, it lifts the plunger to make contact with the switch and gives a false reading. It is random, doesnt happen every time. I think they need to make the guide hole in the plunger 1-2mm larger.

I have been waiting for this product to become available for some time. After receiving it and installing it(which was super easy) all I can say, is AWESOME. I will be purchasing another one for my 223 XL750 head. Do NOT purchase a Dillon powder check, get this one.

I will start off by saying mine arrived broken. The tab that holds the sensor head was broken and the battery was dead. I called and was sent a replacement in under a week. Great customer service.
My own observations the lock tab for the sensor head is a bit delicate. If you are aware of that all should be fine.
Works just as advertised easy to set up and use. So far run 300 rounds with it
very happy and would purchase it again.

I have been very impressed with several of the items that I have purchased from you. The powder check is no exception. This is very easy to set up and works perfectly. This can be mounted on any progressive press. I have already showed it to my friends and they have purchased their own.

Does a good job checking for no-powder or double charges. The boot kicks up powder when it makes contact with the case and ends up making a huge mess on the shellplate, really makes me wonder what powder they used to test this with before going to market.
[DAA Reply]: Yes, a powder check is designed to check for double charges or no charge. It is not designed for anything else. The foot of the rod does make contact with the powder, like other such devices on the market, and as it lifts out it may indeed cause a spill of a tiny amount of powder. In our testing (N350 and N310) it was a negligible amount. But I do believe it does depend on static electricity,. Which may vary from place to place.

This device does its job well. It's easy to set up - easier than Dillon's Powder Check. And since it takes up less space on the press, it is easier to do just about everything.

Set this up on a Hornady LNL Progressive press with 9mm shell plate , Red Anodized threaded fitting wouldn't go down far enough to allow casing to lift internal plastic bushing to activate the micro switch , hit the top of shell plate ! Had to put in lathe and turn down the threaded area like EVERY die manufactured to put a step in it aprox. 3/16" to allow it to fit properly & actually work . Besides that , works like a champ
