Seadog123 Posted January 31, 2017 Share Posted January 31, 2017 I've searched through the forums for an answer to the following and if it's there my search "skills" have failed me. I have a Dillon 450. It was very inexpensive used but is in very good condition. It's basically a 550, without the removable toolhead, but everything is manual: manual primer bar (pull back to capture primer from the tube) manual powder bar activation, manual advance of shell plate. I love it as I am a beginner loader, only loading 38 Special, and I can pay close attention to the process and learn. I've loaded a couple of thousand rounds so far. I have two primer related issues: 1. When I pull the primer bar back to capture a primer, then let it go forward with a primer into position for seating, a second primer sometimes falls out of the primer tube onto the primer bar. Is there something at the end of the primer tube or in some device that releases the primers one by one that I should be looking at? 2. Despite my great care in loading the primers in the feed tube the correct way up, when I pull the primer bar back to capture a primer, then let it go forward with a primer, into position for seating, the primer bar occasionally comes forward with the primer upside down. Why might that be happening and is there a fix? Thanks for any help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
