Warning System Installation
the Automatic Primer System Schematic for
assistance.) Install the battery and the battery cover (#13857) in the system's main body.
Slide the Early Warning System Assembly down over the knurled cap on your primer magazine
and lightly tighten the clamp screw.
Pivot the switch lever (#13864) away from the Early Warning System housing to fill
the primer magazine with primers.
Invert the primer pick up tube over the knurled cap and pull the primer retaining
clip (#14040 - See Figure 17.) The primers should now fall smoothly into the magazine.
Pivot the switch lever back over the Early Warning System housing. Gently slide the
follower rod (#13707) down through the switch lever, the knurled cap and into the primer
magazine tube until the follower rod touches the primers.
You are now ready to reload. When you are nearly out of primers (approximately
three remaining) the follower rod will activate the buzzer. Never attempt to remove the
primer magazine shield, it is there for your protection. Your primer system should now be
ready. Let's move on to Station 3.
3: This is an easy one. All we do is seat the bullet to its proper depth in the
cartridge case. This depth was adjusted at the factory for the bullet type on the sample
We give you a choice of bullet seating stems, use the one closest to the type of
bullet you are using.
The depth of bullet seating may be adjusted simply by screwing the seating stem in
or out. The adjustment is held in place by a layer of Delrin beneath the toolhead.
Station 4: Another easy one. This
station removes the bell and crimps the bullet in place. Once again this adjustment has
been performed by Dillon.
More or less crimp can be achieved simply by screwing the crimp adjustment screw
(#13908) in or out. Check your reloading manual for crimp dimensions.

|Okay now that you understand the purpose of all of the Square Deal
"B" stations, we are ready to reload. Begin as follows:
1. Place a clean, empty case in Station 1 and cycle the handle,
don't forget to press forward firmly to seat the primer in Station 2. Work slowly.
2. Place another empty case in Station 1, cycle the handle. Work
slowly and carefully, watch the powder bar function and be sure it travels fully to the
left each time.
If it doesn't, turn the powder die (#13865) 1/8 turn clockwise and try again.
3. Carefully place a bullet on top of the cartridge case at Station
3. Insert a new empty case at Station 1, cycle the handle.
||4. From this point on, place a bullet on the case
at Station 3 with your left hand. Insert a case at Station 1 with your right hand and
cycle the handle. Each time you cycle the machine a finished round will be ejected into
the cartridge collection bin. (See Figure 18)

forward firmly on the handle to seat your primers. Primer jams or misfeeds can be caused
by misadjustment of the set screw (#13961) in the primer feed block. The most common case
of primer misfeeds or jams is the primer punch not seating fully onto the primer slide.
This will cause the primer cup to strike the flexible orifice on the bottom of the primer
Watch the powder bar function, make sure you're getting powder.
Set the bullet straight on the case at Station 3 so that it enters the die
Watch your supply of powder and primers, you'll be using them faster than
think you are.
Take your time and learn the machine and its function. The Square Deal
"B" will deliver hundreds of trouble free rounds in short order, just relax and
take your time in the beginning.
Keep it clean, primer residue, spilled powder and just plain dirt can jam your
machine. All bearing surfaces are Delrin and require no lubrication.
Clean your powder bar and underneath your shellplate about every 500 rounds. Some
powders build up and will eventually stick the powder bar. Paint or lacquer thinner works
well to remove any build up.
