    My RL550b is on it's way! Should have it by the end of next week. I got the press, Strng mount, extra primer tubes, dies. I passed on the bullet tray and empty case bin. All I need now is a tumbler and ammo components.

    Good deal. Did you get it locally or did you mail order (online)? Did you ever get over to Sporting Arms?

    There's several options for that press and it will only be a matter of time before you opt for bullet tray, roller handle, extra bins, etc. These items "do" make reloading easier. The important thing is you got a great press that will out last you not to mention the excellent warranty and outstanding customer service. Have years of enjoyment. :)

    I ordered it online. Sporting Arms had one cheaper, but it didn't come with the Cal conversion kit. He will be getting my business on guns and some reloading supplies. I am carrying my wife shopping for her EDC. We are going check him out first. Thanks gdmoody!
    40s&w to start with. Once my wife figures out what she wants, I will add that cal. Once I get going with them I will add my 4 rifle cals also.
    No I held off on it. I have a plan for bullet trays and empty case feeder.

    I don't see a powder scale mentioned or a loading manual. Those two are essential items BEFORE YOU LOAD A SINGLE ROUND.

    I agree with that 100%
    I bought the blue long before the red was as good as it is today.
    6 of 1, half dozen of the other, these days.

    Oops. I guess I should have added I already have the Lyman 49th, and Lee's manual since last Feb. I picked up the Hornady manual two weeks ago. I also ordered the Dillon Eliminator balance beam scale when I ordered the press!:D I should be receiving my bullet puller, primer pocket cleaner from midway this week. The only thing I have left on my list is a tumbler/ media, and ammo components. I plan on starting on my bench Monday!
