The Dillon RL550C is the most versatile reloading machine in the Dillon Precision Products line.  It will accommodate the widest variety of cartridges from 32 ACP up to 338 Lapua, 416 Rigby, and 460 Weatherby.

The "C" designation indicates a significant design change. The upper link arm pivot pins are now threaded in place, and have a grease groove around the pin that connects with a lube hole on the end of the pin.  You can use a needle fitting on a grease gun to lubricate the upper pivot pins now.


The Machine is shown with options:

Options shown are as follows:
Handgun carbide die set
550 Strong Mount #22051
aluminium Roller Handle #17950
Low Powder Sensor #16306
aluminium Bullet Tray #22214
Toolholder with wrenches #11541
Empty Case Bin & Bracket #11185

The basic RL550C includes:

  • Machine only without calibre conversion kit
  • Powder measure with standard large and small powder bars (small installed). The small bar throws from 2.1 to 15 grains of powder. The large bar throws up to 55 to 60 grains of powder.
  • 1 priming system with large and small priming parts.
  • 1 large and 1 small primer pick up tube
  • Low Primer Alarm
  • 1 toolhead
  • 1 powder die
  • 1 loaded cartridge catch bin
  • 1 written instruction manual
  • 1 set of standard Allen wrenches

You will also need (at a minimum):

  • Die set (dies are not included with the base unit)
  • Calibre conversion kit
  • Powder scale
  • Reloading Handbook
  • Dial caliper
  • Primer flip tray
  • Case lube (for bottleneck cartridges)

I suggest that you also get:

  • Dillon dies, which are designed for high speed use.
  • Extra primer pick-up tubes, if loading more than 100 - 200 rounds per sitting.
  • If you are loading more than 500 rounds per reloading session, then the RF-100 Electric Primer Filler is an accessory well worth considering.
  • A machine cover to keep the unit dust free.

To change calibres, you will need:

  • A Die set for the new calibre.
  • A Calibre Conversion Kit.
  • If you have the optional electric casefeeder you may need a different casefeed plate.

If you want to leave your dies preset, you'll need:

  • Toolhead (#13909)
  • Powder die (#20064)
  • OR the 550  Quick Change (#22058),which includes a powder measure, powder die, toolhead and a toolhead stand. This allows you to leave your dies and powder charge set up and dedicated to a specific cartridge for faster, easier calibre changes.

Benefits

The RL550C has a manually indexed shellplate making it easier to master the various steps of reloading. Manual indexing also gives the operator greater control over each individual step in the loading process. Calibre changes are simple and require fewer parts than other machines which makes it less expensive to convert to another cartridge.

Case Feeder

An automatic casefeed system, similar to the one used on Dillon's commercial-grade Super 1050 machine and the XL 650, is now available for YOUR RL 550B or C! You simply dump a quart of cases into the hopper and turn it on. The motor-driven disc fills the case feed tube, a micro-switch shuts off the motor when the tube is full, and automatically restarts it when low. This case feeder only works for the handgun calibres listed under the casefeed calibre conversions. Rifle cases are too tall to feed with this system.

Small Pistol Casefeeder

How it Works

Reloading with Dillon’s RL 550C is Easy as 1-2-3!

Most shooters realize that reloading is the most economical way to enjoy their sport, but many shooters are unaware of just how simple it is to reload. In fact, Dillon’s RL 550C is the easiest progressive loader in the world to learn to reload with. How can we make that statement? Simple. Since all of the reloading steps are performed with a stroke of the handle, there is less to remember (or forget) than with an old-fashioned single-station press. Skeptical? Just watch this short video to see how easy it really is.

No Adjustments
Of all the steps in reloading, the adjustment of the reloading dies is the most critical. With the Dillon RL 550C’s removable toolhead, your dies will stay in perfect adjustment. There’s no need to screw them in and out even when changing calibres! The RL 550C functions perfectly with any standard 7/8” x 14 die set. There’s less to go wrong, less to remember.

It’s Your Choice
You can struggle along with a slow, cumbersome single-station press with all its adjustments, changes and secrets, or make your life easier with a progressive RL 550C. If you’re thinking about a competitor’s reloader, before you put your money down, consider this: Dillon will let you try the RL 550C for 30 days. If it doesn’t live up to our claims, or your expectations, return it. We’ll refund your money. Our warranty is simple: If it breaks, we’ll fix it FREE for as long as you own it.

What Should I Do If My Parcel Is Lost Or Damaged?

If your parcel is lost or damaged, you must contact us immediately so that we can contact the carrier and arrange for replacement or refund. Please keep any damaged items including damaged packaging for reference.

How Does Your Price Match Guarantee Work?

We will match any UK website price that is not on a clearance offer. All you need to do is send us the link to the cheaper item. The item must be purchasable through the competitor website.

Can You Send Powders, Ammunition and Primers Straight To Me?

All Powder, Primers and Ammunition are classed as hazardous materials and therefore must be dispatched using an authorised Hazmat carrier. This comes at an extra cost to the average courier so we charge £20.00 for Hazmat deliveries (free for orders above £500) within the UK. This is regardless of the quantity of product ordered and regardless of the location within the UK.

As well as these rules, Primers and Ammunition are also licensable, meaning that you must hold a Section 1 Firearms Certificate or Section 2 Shotgun Certificate (dependant on the primers or ammunition you purchase). This means that because we cannot physically check your certificate, these items must be sent to an RFD (Registered Firearms Dealer) for collection by the customer (yourself). This allows you to present a copy of your Firearms/Shotgun certificate to the RFD prior to the goods being handed over.

In order to allow us to keep delivery charges as low as possible, we only dispatch Hazmat materials on a Wednesday. This means that if an order is placed on a Thursday, it will be 6 days before dispatch takes place.

The costs and delivery times for all applicable countries can be seen below and these prices are regardless of quantity/consignment value ordered:

UK £20.00 on orders below £500. Free postage on orders above £500 - Delivery Time 10 working days after dispatch.

Republic Of Ireland £1840.00 - Delivery Time 10 working days after dispatch.

France £1840.00 - Delivery Time 21 working days after dispatch.

Rest Of Europe £4820.00 - Delivery Time 21 working days after dispatch.

Rest Of World £4820.00 - Delivery Time 21 working days after dispatch.

What Powder Do I Need For This Calibre / Bullet?

We always recommend purchasing a reloading manual so that the data is consistant, accurate, and always to hand.

If you do not wish to do this, or your manual does not have the nescessary data for your needs, you can visit our Reloading Data Section for manufacturer advice.
