Does anybody have a 550 swags tool that bolts on the primer slide they’d be willing to sell reasonable? Possibly be interested in other tools for swaging 223 and 308

FYI, Dillon Precision voids the warranty on 550, 650, and 750 presses which use such a tool.  Reason?  These tools stress the shellplates and cam mechanism parts.  The Super 1050, RL 1100, and CP 2000 presses have rods which press the case against the swager,  This reduces stress on the shellplate and cam mechanisms.

Just guessing about how much stress you're putting on the press,I'd probably opt for the Dillon stand alone pocket swedging tool, RCBS single stage tool.  For myself I've been using a Sinclair pocket cutter with a gizmo I rigged up in my drill press.

Long ago Dad had a Winchester 401SL.  Bullets are not available so he had a smith make a die to swage .41 jacketed to .401.  The only press that worked well was the heavy "O" type single from RCBS.  Even with pure lanolin lube the swage took a lot of force.
