Lies, LIES.

Strong Mount - 550/650 @ $ 45.95
Depends on bench height and if you are sitting or standing. Sitting NO.
Roller Handle - Aluminum - 550/650 @ $ 40.95
Nope, it's nicer but NO.
Dillon 3-Die Set, Caliber as Specified @ $ 60.95
Lee are just as good and 1/2 the price. Dillon have nice features but NO.
Bullet Tray - 550/650/SqDeal @ $ 37.95
NO
Decapping Pins 10-Pack: Dillon Pistol Dies Only @ $ 4.95
NO
550 Toolholder w/o Casefeeder - w/Wrenches @ $ 25.95
Wrench's are very nice to have.
550B Spare Parts Kit @ $ 15.95
Nice to have I waited a year to get mine.
550B Empty Case Bin and Bracket @ $ 22.95
NO
4-Pack Primer Pickup Tubes, Size as Specified @ $ 19.95<
NO. I stopped loading mine in advance. I like the break in routine it gives not having them pre loaded.
Primer Flip Tray @ $ 16.95
YES
Reloading Manual - Lyman #49 @ $ 24.95
YES, if you don't have a good manual.
Dillon 40 S&W & 45 ACP Stainless Case Gage @ $ 12.95 ea.
NO, but man they are nice and I do use mine all the time.
Dillon 40 S&W/10mm Carbide 3-Die Set @ $ 60.95
Get the LEE to save money, Dillon if you want nice feature. Both work but Lee might actually be better for Glock .40 brass.
RL 550B Caliber Conv: 40 S&W/10mm @ $ 41.95
YES
Dillon 45 ACP Stainless Case Gage @ $ 12.95
Same as last time
Dillon Quick Change Kit @ 95.99
NO, NO, NO. Just make sure you have a toolhead for each dieset. Switching the powder measure over is no big deal.
