Hi guys,

I just bought this Dillon 550B today but unfortunately I didn't do the math correctly. I got this from TJCOKER. He's an awesome guy to work with. He walked me through everything. What I missed was this setup comes with a .38 special/.357 setup. I need a setup for 9mm. I really don't want to let this go but I'm over my budget and can't afford the caliber conversion for it. So I'm offering it to you guys.

What it comes with.

~550B with manual
~What I believe to be .38 Dillon shell holder
~3 RCBS Die set 9mm luger without the shell holder. There is an extra die in there I don't know what it's for, the punch pin is missing from the deprimer.
~4 Peice Premium Precision .38 special die set.
~The press with two head units and primer and tube holder and powder unit
tray
~Also included is a scale.

Asking $325 Meet in San Gabriel
Sold for a lee's turret press and $160 and a can of monkey cum

Willing to take trades. I'm looking for a lee's turret press, and tumbler and strainer.

I don't mind, but it's up to pryde if he wants it since he's interested in the set.

The caliber conversion kit for the Dillon 550B is only $40.95 plus shipping. Extra depriming pins for RCBS dies are only a few bucks. Also the 4th die in your 9mm set is probably a taper crimp die. Because the 9mm cartridge headspaces on the case mouth, you can't put a roll crimp into the cases. The taper crimp die has a long tapered section in the die that puts a gradual taper crimp in the case.

Do not trade this for the LEE Turret Press! Just sell the .38/.357 dies and buy the 9mm dies and shell holder. Dillon dies are $40.00 or so, bite the bullet you'll regret selling your dillon later, guaranteed.

Hey guys,

I would have loved to have kept this but I just don't have the money for it. I already sold it to Pryde. Just to give you guys an idea of what we traded, I gave him the Dillon press with pick up tubes and junk, i got in return $160 and a lee's turret's press. I know he got the better end of the deal, especially when he gave me back the dies and asked for 20 bux back as I got the dies as gift. I just don't want someone coming back to me saying I jipped them especially when I know who has the better deal. Besides that, 20 bux isn't a big thing. As long as I avoid any nasty Sun bashing. Wish I would have heard from all you pmed guys sooner~ The money and other offers are way more worth it, but a deal is a deal, all transactions were done properly.
