Re: The dreaded carrier adjustment

I've never really had a lot of issues with the primer system on either of my LM's, one is set up for large pistol and the other small pistol. There was a learning curve, but no where near what it was for the Pro-1000, I've actually had way more primer issues with it than the LM. I'm thinking it's be...

Hadn't thought of knocking it out, I've drilled mine out with a 1" bit and left a lip at the bottom to set a freebe harbor freight LED flashlight in. May have to try knocking it out next time.

I don't know if I would buy it again, but so far have loved using the Chargemaster. I did have the power adapter crap out on me and they sent a new one, no questions asked. Hopefully the rest of the thing's warranty is as good. I got it for convenience, I used to use powder measure then trickle to t...

Understood, but if I'm going to the trouble of reloading using match grade bullets, trimming the cases to just the rite length, uniforming primer pockets and flash holes, I want the weight dead nuts on, not plus or minus a tenth of a grain. I don't worry about it with pistol too much, but rifle I wa...

Good source, but if I'm reading it rite, it's 4$ a bin? I'll admit I wasn't looking for a box of 24 but they come out to 1.70$ a box shipped, and I can always use the bins.

http://www.uline.com/BL_305/Uline-Plastic-Stackable-Bins This is where I got my bins, the Akro's are better quality than the harbor freight and tractor supply bins I found locally, but not 10$ better. Easy enough to bend and make the hanger as well. I had to buy a box of 24 to get them cheap, but th...

I decided to give this baffle a try, and was amazed at how it brought the consistence of my loads up. I've always tried to keep the powder level up in my hoppers to even out the head pressure so to speak, but this made a world of difference. So far I've only tried it with Titegroup, but will be tryi...

OK, the plunger is slightly below the trough, and the trough had a very slight bur on the edge of the plunger hole, couldn't see it, just barely feel it with a probe. Might be wear from the plunger raising through it. Anyway, I put a tiny little chamfer on the edge and cleaned everything again. Mayb...

Thanks for the ideas, I hadn't even considered the primer pin level, will check that out first thing. A good idea on beveling the underside of the shell plate as well. It's really bugging me since it just started doing this after piles of ammo and no sign of wear on the priming system.

Primer pockets are OK, I've been loading with Tula and this brass. A tight primer pocket wouldn't explain and upside down primer, maybe a crushed primer though.

Thanks, I think I'll try a few hundred of CCI and see if I continue to have issues. Thing is I've run over a thousand of Tula and Wolf with no issues till now. Of course could be the latest batch or what, but surprising to suddenly start having issues.

Also they were Tula primers if that helps. Normally I use CCI's, but since I tried the Tula's and they worked I've been using them.

upside down primers???

I've probably loaded 5k rounds on this press, all large pistol and last time I loaded about 400 rounds I had 6 that had sideways or upside down primers. Took the shell plate off and there was oil and grease residue getting into the primer mechanism(this was rite after changing from 44 colt to 45 col...

The powder that did it was Varget, and din't take but a day or so. They ship powder in plastic, you'd think they could come up with a clear or semi clear plastic that the powder wouldn't affect.

What is up with that? I leave powder, unique and titegroup and black powder in my lee hoppers with no issue, but I did it one time with my RCBS charge master and it etched the clear plastic hopper.
