Hey all, just a heads up.
I busted the shellplate bolt on my SDB. When I called Dillon, I said "Shellplate Bolt" and the rep said "Oh, SDB, right?". Apparently they have redesigned the bolt, so if you have a SDB, you may want to call and get a couple of the new ones before this happens to you. It's a real pain to extract the shellplate and brass in various stages of reloading from the toolhead.
My press is only about a month and a half old, so this is a recent development.

I've been using the SDB for 15 months now and some 6K rounds of 40S&W. I recently started reloading 9mm as well with the SDB and have not had this problem.
