This is a great idea, very easy to set up. I believe they are 'almost' there, but not quite. The problem is the plunger (I have only tested the pistol plunger) has a tendency to catch on the push rod. It binds as the rod is raised, so even if there is no shell in the holder, it lifts the plunger to make contact with the switch and gives a false reading. It is random, doesnt happen every time. I think they need to make the guide hole in the plunger 1-2mm larger.
[DAA Reply]: As of Sep 1st 2021, the plunger tip is made out of brass which should solve issue.

I have been waiting for this product to become available for some time. After receiving it and installing it(which was super easy) all I can say, is AWESOME. I will be purchasing another one for my 223 XL750 head. Do NOT purchase a Dillon powder check, get this one.

I will start off by saying mine arrived broken. The tab that holds the sensor head was broken and the battery was dead. I called and was sent a replacement in under a week. Great customer service.
My own observations the lock tab for the sensor head is a bit delicate. If you are aware of that all should be fine.
Works just as advertised easy to set up and use. So far run 300 rounds with it
very happy and would purchase it again.

I have been very impressed with several of the items that I have purchased from you. The powder check is no exception. This is very easy to set up and works perfectly. This can be mounted on any progressive press. I have already showed it to my friends and they have purchased their own.

Does a good job checking for no-powder or double charges. The boot kicks up powder when it makes contact with the case and ends up making a huge mess on the shellplate, really makes me wonder what powder they used to test this with before going to market.
[DAA Reply]: Yes, a powder check is designed to check for double charges or no charge. It is not designed for anything else. The foot of the rod does make contact with the powder, like other such devices on the market, and as it lifts out it may indeed cause a spill of a tiny amount of powder. In our testing (N350 and N310) it was a negligible amount. But I do believe it does depend on static electricity,. Which may vary from place to place.

This device does its job well. It's easy to set up - easier than Dillon's Powder Check. And since it takes up less space on the press, it is easier to do just about everything.

Set this up on a Hornady LNL Progressive press with 9mm shell plate , Red Anodized threaded fitting wouldn't go down far enough to allow casing to lift internal plastic bushing to activate the micro switch , hit the top of shell plate ! Had to put in lathe and turn down the threaded area like EVERY die manufactured to put a step in it aprox. 3/16" to allow it to fit properly & actually work . Besides that , works like a champ

It is great! It is designed to work on virtually any press with a 7/8-16 die thread regardless of manufacturer.
It is too easy to lose track of what is happening when running a progressive. I think every progressive should have an audible and visual powder alarm.

Great product! Helps prevent squibs. I have one for each caliber I reload.

Easy to install, set up and use. Works very well. Takes up a bit less space on tool head, too.

Outstanding powder check device, easy to set up, great safety addition. Works well with handgun & medium /large bore calibers. As with any powder check device; the only weakness is the inability to function consistently with small bottle neck cartridges, ie, 223. Overall, an excellent product.

This item is doing his job is accurate, 0.2 gr less or more make it sing.

It works great, easy set up, I'd recommend it to others looking for a powder check.

Haven't had the chance to use it yet
Looks like it will work as described.

This really gives me piece of mind when loading so I do not have to worry about over and under charges!!

This is a must have for safety as to make sure you dont over load the powder or under load the powder nice loud alarm have tested it and it appears to be pretty accurate with in +/- 1 grain or so it is very easy to change over from rifle or pistol ether way installing is fast and easy then i just take my time to adjust sensor rod and test 10 or 15 times to make sure i have rod placed perfect for both over and under load worth every cent if for no other reason to keep from getting an over load and blowing up your gun.

So I’m kinda stuck, this is a follow up to the 5 start I had given. I purchased this a year ago and it was awesome. So here I sit here a year later with a dead battery. I call my Batteries Plus store (3X to make sure) they tell me the battery has been discontinued. I call DAA and they check into it send me an email that says multiple locations on Amazon. All the feed back for the amazon ones are crap or are completely out of stock and are from another country. So until DAA can make good on a reliable battery availability state side. I wouldn’t recommend this powder check.
Ok, since you don’t want to purchase from the amazon links we sent, here is another:
hope this helps,

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.

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.
