Default Old Dillon 450 reloader parts

I purchased one of the original runs of Dillon RL 450's back in the early 80's. Its a great machine with all manually activated controls. Ive mainly reloaded pistol calibers on it, but recently have decided to load some 5.56. Apparently Ive misplaced the Large powder bar, and Dillon does not list carrying the appropriate one for a manually activated machine. Yes I know I could upgrade the machine to the more modern auto powder/primer configuration but really like the manual aspects of control. I was hopefull someone here may have an extra I could buy. The email I check most often is: condor2u@yahoo.com

I also have a 450. Hated the Dillon measure. Long time ago, I bought the adapter from Dillon and began using a RCBS Uniflow measure. Never looked back.

I may have all the old Dillon measure and parts. I will check and send you a PM if so.

You can call Dillon. They may have parts lying around. If they do, they may just send you what you need, gratis. They are good like that.

I'd call Dillon. They've great customer service and I'd bet there' a good chance they have what you need. They've been doing stuff for my old Square Deal for thirty-five years, now. My kid brother has the un-up-dated 450 and hasn't had any problem from the company forever.

No large charge bar. Just the std and spacer bar.
