This Powder Check was purchased for the sole purpose of preventing 9mm rounds from being loaded without a powder charge. Sometimes, the powder drop gets dirty or adjusted improperly which results in lots of cases not getting powder. This results in minor squibs (minor because they don't allow...

Works great on my Dillon 750 with the Mr. Bulletfeeder! Only alarms when the powder charge is wrong, so you don't learn to ignore it.

I use this on a Lee Auto breech lock pro. Works fantastic. Very easy set up, just watch video. Once you have it set you will never hear it unless you have a charge error. Battery should last year's. DAA hit a home run with this

I did a build on my 750xl and wanted more room for the powder measure and bullet feed. This is a slim design. It allowed me to turn my powder measure. So now I have a powder check station and bullet feed station. Has worked fine since receiving it.

DAA Magnetic Powder Check

(44)
Manufacturers: Double-Alpha Academy

Description:

Dillon’s design of the XL750 means the powder measure charge bar extend out over station #4. If you plan to use a powder check in station #3 and a tall bullet dropper in station #4 – this creates an issue.

An available solution for this problem is the DAA Extra short charge bar shown on the right.

The DAA Magnetic Powder Check (US Pat. Pending) is a great addition to any progressive reloading machine, helping to ensure the quality and safety of your reloaded ammo.

The unique new design uses a high-tech Reed Sensor and a magnet assembled to the plunger Rod, to assess if the charge in the case is of the correct height.

This original design also provides, for the first time, an adjustability option. By bringing the Reed Sensor closer or further from the magnet, you can determine how forgiving the powder checker will be, or how much of a range of variance in the powder level should be acceptable without sounding the alarm. At its most sensitive, the accepted height variance is about 2mm, which correlates to a powder error of less than +-0.5 grain. More than sufficient to pick up any of the mistakes we are checking for, such as a double-charge, debris in the case or a case without powder.

With the turn of a screw you can increase the acceptable range by distancing the sensor inside the electrical box, making the Powder Checker more forgiving and less likely to sound alarms you may not need.

The DAA Magnetic Powder Check assembles onto a station immediately after your powder dropper, screwing into a standard die thread 7/8-14 station. However, unlike other powder check systems, the DAA product does not require a dedicated hole drilled through the tool head next to the station! It can be used on ANY progressive reloader which has an available station after the powder drop.

A powder-check does require the use of a station in your toolhead, so if you do not currently have an available station, you may need to combine your seating and crimping into one station using a 2-in-1 seat/crimp die to free up a station. These too are available from DAA.

The DAA Magnetic Powder Check is activated off the top rim of the case rather than the base of the shell plate, this means that no alarm will sound if no case is present. The powder sensing plunger enters into the case mouth to rest on top of the charge and measure it’s height, sounding an alarm if the  powder level is either too low or too high. It provides both an audible beep alarm as well as a bright red LED light when triggered.

The DAA Magnetic Powder Check includes a replacement short plunger, suitable for use with rifle ammo. When using for rifle, simply replace the plunger, and assemble the steel rod upside down, using the end without the shoe to enter into the small case mouth. Parts included make this suitable to use with all pistol ammo (9mm and up) and for rifle from .223 and larger.

It’s compact size, slick and modern design, ease of setup and adjustability, make the DAA Magnetic Powder Check the perfect accessory for your toolhead!

Summary of features and advantages:

  • Can be used on all toolheads, does not require a dedicated hole near station.
  • Assembles onto any 7/8-14 station
  • Provides both an audible AND a visual alarms
  • Can be adjusted for sensitivity, to avoid false alarms
  • Includes all parts for both rifle and pistol use
  • Activates off the rim of the case, so no alarm sound when no brass is present
  • Slim and compact design.
  • Quality materials. Stainless Steel Rod, with aluminum red anodized die body. Rubber coated glass-fiber reinforced nylon for electronic housing

This Powder Check was purchased for the sole purpose of preventing 9mm rounds from being loaded without a powder charge. Sometimes, the powder drop gets dirty or adjusted improperly which results in lots of cases not getting powder. This results in minor squibs (minor because they don't allow another round to chamber in my guns) which are frightening, to say the least. Could not be happier with this addition to my Hornady Lock N Load Progressive Press. Installs easily, adjustments are very quick and simple. The price is just right.

I do all case prep including prime off my progressive. Progressive First station is set to neck size, 2nd station drops powder, 3rd station checks powder, 4th station seats bullet, 5th station lee factory crimp die. In spite of my trying to eyeball powder in case before seating bullet, I have experienced an occasional no powder squib. With the powder check, I absolutely love to hear the beep beep when loading because it assures me that I do have powder and I do not have too much.

Good engineering and debugging challenge but works great now. Second one I purchased for my 1050 5.56 setup because I liked this design better than the Dillon powder check. Having issues with the rod hitting the side of the case mouth and getting caught. I tapered the the rod tip more to clear the 5.56 case opening to try to solve this concentricity issue. Excellent device but may need some tweaking.
