a dillion 550 is not a progressive press. you must manually move the plate. they are very easy to set up your dies for that reason.

Got my stuff in:

I will say I love the kit. Its very nice, but the directions are lacking. It took me 3 hours to get it put together, as they weren't very specific on a number of things.

Here is my setup: Using a kid's computer desk I found at Goodwill for $5, I hard-mounted it to the side. I had to get a file and trim out a semi-circle into the side of the desk for the ram so it didn't rub, but with the lever half way down I can still access the slide-out. Vinegar and salt are down below with the wash tubs. Academy had the ammo can and ammo holders, and pictured as well is my Remy R1 with Hogue grips. I took the opportunity to organize my bookcase as well. So far I have cleaned and de-primed ~150 old rounds. I'm just waiting on my 1000rds of brass and lead bullets to come in.
