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...

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.

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.

It is great! It is designed to work on virtually any press with a 7/8-16 die thread regardless of manufacturer.
It is too easy to lose track of what is happening when running a progressive. I think every progressive should have an audible and visual powder alarm.

Outstanding powder check device, easy to set up, great safety addition. Works well with handgun & medium /large bore calibers. As with any powder check device; the only weakness is the inability to function consistently with small bottle neck cartridges, ie, 223. Overall, an excellent product.

DAA Magnetic Powder Check 2.0

(99)
Manufacturers: Double-Alpha Academy
DILLON XL750 NOTE
The Dillon XL750 Powder Measure is angled such that the powder bar must extend directly over station #4 in the toolhead, and it cannot be repositioned. This Is not an issue if you have a short die in that station. However, if you wish to run a powder check in station #3, and a bullet dropper in station #4, as many do, this creates a serious problem. As a solution to this issue we are pleased to offer our  Extra-Short Dillon Powder Bar.

Description:

The DAA Magnetic Powder Check 2.0 (US Pat. Pending) is a great addition to any progressive reloading machine, helping to ensure the quality and safety of your reloaded ammo.

The unique new design uses a high-tech Reed Sensor and a magnet assembled to the plunger Rod, to assess if the charge in the case is of the correct height.

In the new 2.0 design, the Sensitivity Adjustability feature has been removed, in favor of placing the Reed sensor in a fixed position on a custom built PCB board. That fixed position is one that sets the accepted height variance to about 2.0-2.5mm, which is what we found to be the best setting for all. More than sufficient to pick up a double-charge, debris in the case or a case without powder.
This design change now allows all components to be PCB mounted on the custom board – making the electronics much more reliable and long lasting.

An additional improvement to the DAA Magnetic Powder Check 2.0 is that the polymer shoe on the end of the plunger rod (which contacts the powder) has now been replaced with a brass CNC machined part, which helps to reduce the static electricity which could cause some powder to be lifted out of the case. 

The DAA Magnetic Powder Check 2.0 assembles onto a station immediately after your powder dropper, screwing into a standard die thread 7/8-14 station. However, unlike other powder check systems, the DAA product does not require a dedicated hole drilled through the tool head next to the station! It can be used on ANY progressive reloader which has an available station after the powder drop.

A powder-check does require the use of a station in your toolhead, so if you do not currently have an available station, you may need to combine your seating and crimping into one station using a 2-in-1 seat/crimp die to free up a station. These too are available from DAA.

The DAA Magnetic Powder Check 2.0 is activated off the top rim of the case rather than the base of the shell plate, this means that no alarm will sound if no case is present. The powder sensing plunger (now with brass shoe) enters into the case mouth to rest on top of the charge and measure its height, sounding an alarm if the  powder level is either too low or too high. It provides both an audible beep alarm as well as a bright red LED light when triggered.

The DAA Magnetic Powder Check 2.0 includes a replacement short plunger, suitable for use with rifle ammo. When using for rifle, simply replace the plunger, and assemble the steel rod upside down, using the end without the brass shoe to enter into the small case mouth. Parts included make this suitable to use with all pistol ammo (9mm and up) and for rifle from .223 and larger.

It’s compact size, slick and modern design, ease of setup and adjustability, make the DAA Magnetic Powder Check 2.0 the perfect accessory for your toolhead!

Summary of features and advantages:

  • Can be used on all toolheads, does not require a dedicated hole near station.
  • Assembles onto any 7/8-14 station
  • Provides both an audible AND a visual alarms
  • Acceptance range of powder level is approx. 2.0-2.5mm. Easily enough to trigger an alarm in case of a double-charge or no-charge situation.
  • Includes all parts for both rifle and pistol use
  • Activates off the rim of the case, so no alarm sound when no brass is present
  • Slim and compact design
  • Quality materials. Stainless Steel Rod, Brass shoe, with an aluminum red anodized die body. Rubber coated glass-fiber reinforced nylon for electronic housing
  • Custom PCB board for all electronic parts ensures reliability and longevity

Works just as advertised easy to set up and use. So far run 300 rounds with it
very happy and would purchase it again.

[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.

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

So I’m kinda stuck, this is a follow up to the 5 start I had given. I purchased this a year ago and it was awesome. So here I sit here a year later with a dead battery. I call my Batteries Plus store (3X to make sure) they tell me the battery has been discontinued. I call DAA and they check into it send me an email that says multiple locations on Amazon. All the feed back for the amazon ones are crap or are completely out of stock and are from another country. So until DAA can make good on a reliable battery availability state side. I wouldn’t recommend this powder check.





DAA reply:

Hi David,

Ok, since you don’t want to purchase from the amazon links we sent, here is another:

hope this helps,

This Powder Check was purchased for the sole purpose of preventing 9mm rounds from being loaded without a powder charge. Sometimes, the powder drop gets dirty or adjusted improperly which results in lots of cases not getting powder. This results in minor squibs (minor because they don't allow another round to chamber in my guns) which are frightening, to say the least.

Could not be happier with this addition to my Hornady Lock N Load Progressive Press.

Installs easily, adjustments are very quick and simple.

The price is just right.

I do all case prep including prime off my progressive. Progressive First station is set to neck size, 2nd station drops powder, 3rd station checks powder, 4th station seats bullet, 5th station lee factory crimp die.
In spite of my trying to eyeball powder in case before seating bullet, I have experienced an occasional no powder squib.

With the powder check, I absolutely love to hear the beep beep when loading because it assures me that I do have powder and I do not have too much.
