I purchased the Dillon 550C and the DAA Case Feeder as a package hoping to duplicate the Dillon 1100 that I have for large production loads. The 550C was going to be for small caliber (.380 & 9mm) loads only - that's why I went with the 550C and the Case Feeder combo. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the case feeder to drop the .380 cases properly. When I manually "dropped" the cases into the feeder tube, the push bar wouldn't place the case properly into position. The 9mm seemed to work properly but I couldn't get the .380 casses to feed and position properly.
I spoke to DAA about the problem I was having and they didn't have a solution, so I went back with an RMA for credit.

Een minimale must have om comfortabel te werken op eender welke pers ,juist goed kijken of er niet per ongeluk een case gedraaid zit wat eigelijk zelden voor komt. Een enorm gemak ,en tevens nog eens tijdwinst , en zoals geweten van DA goede kwaliteit .Een aanrader.

Excellent addition to Dillon 550 press. May need to replace base plate mounting screws with flat head, if your press uses cap screws. Also found that you can adapt to include 6.5mm Grendel and 7.62 x 39mm cases, by modifying .38SPL feed tube/spacer.(similar to .300 BLK mod noted on description.)
Also if you have primer shuttle/actuator rod alignment problems, after installation, loosen the two top press base plate screws and rotate the plate to align.

This is a time saver for the Dillon 550. Works as advertised. When used with the loader bowl only less than 1% of the cases do not end up right side up.

This unit works very well. I found that with 223 cases, if only one is in the drop tube it feed perfectly. With more than one, tipping is more prevalent. If using one you just have to pay more attention to running out of cases in the main feed tube. This works for me.I would definitely buy this unit again.

Had my DAA mini case feeder for a couple of weeks now. Installation instructions could use a little improvement but once it was installed and running it is truly a sweet running set up. Cut my reloading time on my Dillon 550B by 50%. The best reloading accessory money I have ever spent. I also purchased the feeder bowl and highly recommend this also.
Shipping was quick and the product well packaged. My first experience with DAA and certainly won't be my last.

1 HOUR INSTALL, AND 1000 ROUNDS OF 9MM, AND THE CASE FEEDER HAS BEEN CARE FREE, UNBELIEVABLE. WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE. BEST $150.00 I HAVE EVER SPENT. SAME GOES FOR THE DAA MINI CASE FEEDER LOADER BOWL.

This case feeder works amazing. Definitely get the feeder bowl also if you are ordering this. Will save you a ton of time when refilling the feeder magazine tube.

I load for others as I have an 06 type FFL. I added this to my equipment for small batches of less than 1000 rounds. For large orders I use my 1050. The 2 problems I have with you folks. 1. There were no written instructions on how to set up the case feeder. A video, on the internet is provided and my connection/service is so slow it makes watching videos impossible at best. 2. On my order I requested a 2nd 357 adapter as I load both 357 and 300 AAC and it was not included.
Took about 20 minutes to set up, took awhile to figure out where the magnet goes and after making the case feeder work with 300 AAC WOW it is slick to use. Filling the tubes with the optional feeder was quick and easy, especially with 300 AAC and 223, not so easy with 9mm and I need more practice with 9mm. Used it to deprive 150 9mm case and it was very fast and smooth. It took a few cases before I noticed I needed to press 550 handed forward (upward) like priming a case before cases would would be moved from the case feeder to station 1. After that I was done depriming in about 2-3 minutes. It took longer to fill the tubes that to deprime all the cases. For 300 AAC loaded about 500-700 hundred and other than a few cases double feeding or falling over it worked great. For 223 loaded 700+ with no issues just a few cases would not feed. Thanks for I great product.
ANY plans to make a case feeder for 44 mag and 45/colt 454 and 460 S&W?
I would purchase again, especially for 223, 300 AAC and most pistol rounds.

The unit works very well a little finicky with the initial set up and adjustment. Makes case feeding really easy. I have one of the first 550s to come out and had to change out the screws that hold the case feeder to the base plate . My old style used cap screws instead of counter sunk screws. Picked up new screws at the hardware store. All en All the unit works good.

Super well-designed system...easy to install, priced right, and most importantly, works great! Fantastic product!

Tightening the shellplate on my press enough is needed, but then it works 99,99% even with 9mm in higher rate of reloading.
For the money absolutely super product ! Thank you....

This is absolutely amazing. I'm not an engineer, but I certainly recognize the work that has to have gone into designing and building this machine. I questioned whether or not it would actually cut time in half, as they stated. It definitely does so for me, if not better than that !
I have loaded a couple thousand rounds of various calibers so far and I am highly impressed.
Thanks for a great product that actually functions as advertised. That's a rare quality in this day and age.

I have the latest model, Dillon RL550C and there was no problem to just take off 1,3 mm from the holder to fit it on my press. The product is fantastic and works very well and has increased both my decaping speed and reloading speed 50%.

The mini case feeder is very good, I had to undertake very minor modification to clear the lip of the press adjacent to the tool head but very easy to do. I have the feeder tubes and loader bowl which work well. As this is the least outomated of my four presses, I was just looking to speed up my .223 and 300 Ham'r processing and loading. the case feeder still allows the use of a bullet feeder. In summary not as fast as my dillon 1050 but not far off and you still get quality ammunition.

I have been very happy with the case feeder and it has sped up my reloading. I'm not a large volume reloader, typically never more than 200-300 rounds per session. There were a few items in assembly that the online video doesn't address like needing a metric allen key, but so far so good! I posted those items to the on-line video and I assume they are still there. And it definitely beats the heck out of listening to a vibratory case feeder!

Absolutely perfect addition for the Dillion 550B. Watch setup video first. Setup and making ammo in a few minutes. It is by far the best add on for the 550B. Adding the Case Bowl is a must. Do not hesitate to add this to your loader.

Case feeder was easy to set up and get adjusted. I ran a full magazine of 223 through it, no dies or anything, just putting the case feeder through it's paces. Worked very well. I switched over to 380 and ran 2 two full tubes through it, again no dies just making the feeder do its thing, and again it worked very well.
Unfortunately the case feeder will not work for me. I do all of my sizing and priming as a separate process and my powder measure lives in the number 1 position on the Dillon. The DAA Mini case feeder occupies the same area that my powder measure wants to be. I don't want to change my loading process that has served me well for a long time so I contacted DAA for a RMA and store credit and sent the case feeder back.
I had very high hopes for the mini case feeder and it worked as promised, just didn't work in my process.
