Très bon achat, mieux et moins cher que le Dillon.
Plus précis, il ne sonne pas lors des montées du shell plate sans douille.

Unfortunately the die sensor chip received did not work. Saul and Rob immediately replaced him. Now the die works great. A 10 + to the customer care. Great team the DAA!

I like this better than the Dillon version which relays on plastic part to retain it´s flexibility. Adjustment og this is also easier and foit also other presses besides Dillon.

It does exactly what it says it will do. Short of magically finding a way to not tie up a station, I can't see how it could be any better.

It does create a small amount of powder mess but for me that has been very minor. A couple of granules every few cartridges.

My first one had a broken...

Out of the box easy setup, loading on a Dillon XL750 and slowing down each down stoke to look inside the case to make sure you don't have a short or too much charge was getting tired so after installation no more worries full speed ahead, great product only problem is it's out of stock again.

This is an excellent unit and I am very pleased with it. There are two, minor, issues I had with the units I purchased. 1) Using it on an XL650 reloading 380 acp the die could have been a little shorter, approx. 1mm would do. Screwing the die down until contact was made left the actuator at a...

This powder checker is great. Every time it alerts the powder amount in the case is incorrect. I have not had a false alert using this checker.

Purchased two of these items, works GREAT, on first run had a media pin stuck in primer hole, the new powder checker caught the problem. Takes a little bit to get set up, but once set runs flawless . Will purchase again for my other presses.

Would have been five stars except if you live in a dry climate the plastic tip causes static cling and powder comes out of the case and than drops. You can used the other end but than it is a small tip area and seems to push into the powder. Should have made the tip out of brass to get rid of...

Easier to setup than the Dillon powder check. Really light the bright red LED with the audio alarm. No false alarms if no brass case at the powder check station. Cost less then the Dillon too.

I received the Magnetic Powder Check die and it is well made. I tested it on a single stage press and it works fine. I am sure it will be great on my Mark Seven Apex 10 when I receive the press.

I'm using mine on a Dillon 650 for 300 blackout and no powder spillage at all. I also converted mine to a direct plug in power source so never have to worry about a battery. It uses a 6VDC and 11A battery and found a 6VDC and 10A power supply on Amazon.

Compared to the Dillon Power Check the DAA Magnetic Powder Check was a breeze to calibrate. I like the DAA so much I've sold my Dillon PC and plan on purchasing three more DAA for each of my other tool heads. The bright red LED addition to the audio alarm is a plus.

DAA Magnetic Powder Check

(83)
Manufacturers: Double-Alpha Academy
DILLON XL750 NOTE
The Dillon XL750 Powder Measure is angled such that the powder bar must extend directly over station #4 in the toolhead, and it cannot be repositioned. This Is not an issue if you have a short die in that station. However, if you wish to run a powder check in station #3, and a bullet dropper in station #4, as many do, this creates a serious problem. As a solution to this issue we are pleased to offer our  Extra-Short Dillon Powder Bar.

Description:

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

It does create a small amount of powder mess but for me that has been very minor. A couple of granules every few cartridges.

My first one had a broken retainer tab and DAA promptly sent me a new one. It was a very easy process to get it made right, handled by an actual human who was easy to communicate with and actually read what I was saying. Their support is great and kept this at five stars despite the initial issue. I've subsequently purchased more items from DAA and will continue to do so in the future.

This is an excellent unit and I am very pleased with it. There are two, minor, issues I had with the units I purchased. 1) Using it on an XL650 reloading 380 acp the die could have been a little shorter, approx. 1mm would do. Screwing the die down until contact was made left the actuator at a critical point in not engaging the switch. I shaved the die and all is well. 2) The ability to have more than one die body to allow moving the other parts between different toolheads. It is a little awkward trying to unscrew and screw in the die every time I want to change calibers.
All times that I have used the powder check, it alarmed whenever there was a minor variance in the powder, 1/10th of a grain in smaller calibers.

Would have been five stars except if you live in a dry climate the plastic tip causes static cling and powder comes out of the case and than drops. You can used the other end but than it is a small tip area and seems to push into the powder. Should have made the tip out of brass to get rid of this issue (wish you would offer the tip as as a after market part you can buy and replace the plastic tip). You can try to used static guard and spray the tip or dryer sheets but neither one work for me.
