Can be very sensitive with certain powders. Constantly adjusting it. Hoping DAA will allow me to return it, as it didn't work for me.
DAA has a lot of great ideas, and I've purchased many of them over the years.

I originally purchased a Dillion powder check for my 9mm 1050 toolhead;
I replaced it with the DAA Magnetic Powder Check and bought additional powder checks for my 45 ACP and 5.56 toolheads. The DAA Powder Check is a superior design because the height is adjusted based upon the height of the magnet. It is easier to install and doesn't get out of adjustment like the Dillon powder check.
Stop if you are going to get a powder check and you are considering the Dillon. I had to continue to check the powder level visually when using the Dillon to avoid squibs. Why bother getting a powder check if you still need to check the powder visually to eliminate squibs?

This powder checker is fabulous! I never really had confidence in the other powder checkers I had this one has the alarm, LED light signal and is super sensitive and easy to set. It is totally changed my reloading game!

Works great if Im using a specific brand of brass. Dial it in for Winchester brass, and it chugs right along with no problem. If you collect range brass as I do, you cant run hodge-podge brass through it. Differences in head space from brand to brand will set off the alarm.

Works great but I can’t use it because the two in one die did not work for me ?

This is much better than original unit. More accurate, and I have confidence in it. I taped on a visual indicator (paper arrow) so that if I hit a limit slightly, I can tell if it is high or low limit. Made initial adjustment and haven't had to reset yet.

I have bought a lot of products from DA and have always 110% satisfied with everything. Their support system is beyond expectations and they have just about everything I want BUT a lot I can't afford.

Very happy with this powder monitor. Works as advertised, easy to set up. Currently installed on my Hornady progressive, plan to purchase another for my Dillon.

I would not recommend this product. I am using it in 45 ACP with a spherical powder (MP190) and it beeps at me about 4 out of every 5 rounds, no matter how many times I try to reset it. I was stopping production to weigh charges but they were always + or - 3 tenths of a grain of what I was going for.

Works great! Easy to install and set up and the visual indicator is very helpful

Easy to set up , works great . Need to pick up a few more for my other tool heads .

Great, but gives false alerts every 20 or so rounds. I used to remove the case to check powder (always good), but now I just rotate the magnet a little and the alarm goes off. Have adjusted and readjusted, still can't get this to stop. Overall, very good tool.

Only four stars from me because I found one drawback in this otherwise perfect product. When checking 9mm pistol loads, the "piston" on the measuring rod causes an air "overpressure", forcing several granules of powder out of the case. And thus, creating a powder spill (and lowering the load consistency, even on hard to measure levels). When reloading some 1000 cases in one session, there was spilled powder all over the place because of this. Finally, I had to stop using it for this caliber.

Very nice and only alerts when a case is present. A cheap investment to avoid an incorrect charge.

I have several of these and they all work perfectly.

These are great when setup properly. I have one setup on all my tool heads for each caliber I reload.

This powder check works OK. Nice that it has both an audio and a visual warning. My experience was that it was more "finicky" to set up and adjust the alarm levels than the Dillon powder check. Perhaps it was me. I was using it on an XL650 for 9mm.

Second one I purchased for my other Dillon Quick Change. Simple to install AND it has saved several no powder and 1 double load in my 147 9mm. $65 buck well spent!!!

Exceeded my expectations. Pretty simple to set up, and with a little care and attention during set up and change over I'm able to get consistent results.
Audible and visual alarms provide dual sensory inputs, and for me, a valuable addition to my reloading process.

Once adjusted is very good. Difficult but not impossible to adjust. The problem is when the correct amount of powder is in the case, it is difficult to hold the stem still while getting magnet at just the right height and then tighten the allen key. Then run the press and it will beep when the next round has the correct charge, so have to adjust several times until finally right. Once adjusted it is awesome, really a great tool to have. I would suggest having clips to hold the stem at the correct height so you can easily set the magnet correctly the first time, maybe clips to hold the magnet too before tightening down.
