i've had one for awhile on my Dillon 650. Occasionally a case will get picked up and dropped in the feed tube upside down. I've talked to Dillon - bent the brass piece at the mouth of the feeder - with pretty good results but it still happens occasionally. I also have a problem on 9mm cases - despite the fact that I use the recommended funnel - that they don't drop cleanly and "bunch up" at the mouth of the feed tube and cause the rotating plate to jam ....

Instruction on .357mag - say to insert a washer under plate - to cleanly feed the cases - I ignored that and they're feeding fine. Anyone have any issues there ?

Anyone else having these issues - and if yes, have you found a way to resolve them. I like the feeder despite the issues - but 100% feed reliability would be better.

The solution to your problem is simple. Get a Lee Load Master.

With all the other problems that you will have to deal with the occasional inverted case will seem trivial.

When I bought the Load Master I thought it was finest thing since lights at Wrigley Field. I was soon to learn. one needs at least an associate degree in engineering to keep the damn thing running.

Inverted cases, I'll take em.

I've been thru the RCBS offerings - and gave all that stuff away - have not tried the Lee ( but I'll take your word for it).

I agree it's not that big a deal - just wondering.

Measure your 9's and you will find enough variation between makers to give you trouble--especially foriegn made boxer primed ones----I would sort them out and run 20 or so thru at a time to eliminate this potential problem----LEE LOADERS SUCK :evil: :evil:

The case feeder holds about 300 - 500 cases at a time so it's not really convenient to run 20 or so thru at one time / separate the cases by head stamp. I think I'll just live with it's "personality" the way it is - thanks.
