Replacement Powder Bar Adjustment Bolt - fits Dillon Powder Measure for XL650, RL550, SL900, SDB and 1050 Presses
This Bolt / Screw is a replacement for Dillon original Bolt p/n: 13943 for adjusting powder charge with Powder Measure. It does not require wrench to make adjustment, flat surface of the screw's head can be used to make marks or even affixing stickers. Replacement process takes less than a minute, and doesn't require disassembling of Powder Measure and removal of Powder Bar. You don't even need to drain powder. Feel free to contact me if you need help, - I have pictures explaining replacement process step by step, and will be happy to send them on request.
Based on comments and feedback by several reloaders I'm posting new pictures to reflect quality of the replacement bolt and illustrate answers to several common questions -
This replacement bolt is one solid piece machined from low carbon mild steel;
This replacement bolt is slightly longer than Dillon's original one, and it allows for full length range of adjustment..., and then some if one decides to modify powder bar;
Bolt's head has diameter slightly bigger than large powder bar for ease of operation.
Please be advised that powder bars are shown only for illustration! This bolt is not for X-Small Powder Bar. Based on feedback and suggestion by one of the reloaders, I made modification to accommodate X-Small Powder bar. Please specify that you need bolt for it with your order.

I have these in all of my Dillon Powder Measures. They are so sweet it is just unbelievable. Will be ordering a couple more shortly for the 2 new large powder bars I have acquired. You cannot go wrong with these adjusting screws, your loads will be way more consistent than with the original screw.
