Awesome addition for your safety! Well made, and very easy to adjust for close monitoring of your powder charges during the reloading process.

works great and the new plunger rod with the brass shoe is the best way to avoid spill our the case the powder

I got 2 of the powder checker as I have 2 Dillon 750 one set up for 9mm the other .44mag target loads . Dont need it for the 9mm as 5gr fills the case so a quick look you can see its ok or not but it takes that one point off the check list . Case feed . Primer. power ( no need ) bullet head .
but as for the .44mag set up for 7gr in that case you can not see so before I got this I had to look with a torch through the die hole that this checker now fits.
I feel a lot safer now knowing that the right charge is in the cases .
it is easy to set up too

Much better, more forgiving and more accurate than the stock powder cop! Measures quickly and triggers off the case rim so very few annoying mis-triggers and does not go off if you skip a case.

I have purchased two magnetic powder check measures, they are simple to set up and work very well.

Really a great product, my only small gripe is I wish there was a "not as sensitive" version, I really only want to know about double charges and empty cases.... maybe something to allow the "off" area to be about double what it is now.

I believe it must involve an immense amount of man hours for RnD, for a group of individuals, to refine, greatly improve and simplify, products that are already considered by many, to be top of the line by many hand loaders all over the world. None the less, Double Alpha has pulled it off once again with another great product. Not only at a very competitive price, but a reasonable one as well. Also, the products are generally readily available to be shipped out and are received to very quickly, allowing us to get them installed and put to work. Thank you for your excellent products and comprehensive instructional videos on the net as well as the provided instructions. Keep up the good work DAA. Thanks again from not only a satisfied repeat customer, but am impressed one as well. Take care. K.C.F OHIO

I am new to reloading and thought this appeared to be a well thought out better built unit. It takes a few steps but installs relatively easily, especially with DAA's video. I like the sensitivity setting capability. I was initially trying out a range of powder levels to see what works best in a pistol and I was able to set the powder check to "beep" above and below the overall range levels. I like the fact that it audibly beeps, as well as, visually displays if too much or not enough powder and that it is silent if the powder is correct or if there is no case present. All in all, this was a good purchase for me with good pricing, quick shipping, and good results - so, 5 stars!

This is a very clever device. The fact that the checker warns both for too little loads and excessive loads is really nice. I load 9x19 and double loads with RS12 are easy to spot as powder will be everywhere and I am more worried about squib loads which this product prevents very well. I use this together with Mr Bulletfeeder, 2-in-1 DAA seating&crimp die and DAA short powder slide in a XL750. If had to choose between this and Dillon version I would choose this DAA product.

Easy to assemble/set. Works better than Dillon, also less expensive.

This is a great little check to prevent large over or under charges. It does have one failing. There is a plunger for short (pistol) cases and one for long (rifle) cases. Unfortunately 300 Blackout cases fall in a dead zone. One plunger is too short, one is too long. I had to cut down the long plunger so that it was still a bit longer than the short plunger. That works fine, however now I don't have a long plunger. Customer service has been fine before, I'm sure they'll send me another long plunger. This really should come with a medium length plunger for cases like this.

Works great easy to set up. Just had to angle it a bit farther away fro the Hornady powder because it’s made of steel instead of the aluminum like the Dillon. Magnet from powder check was drawn toward it.

Simple to set up and works great. While the amount of variance allowed is more than you would want for precision loading, it does a great job of detecting drastic over or under charges. Would definitely prevent a squib or overcharge that could cause firearm damage.

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 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.

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 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.

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.
