650 Powder Measure "No-Drop" Problem

Recommended Posts

I've been loading on this particular 650 press for about 2-months.  It is used but, is in great condition.  I've loaded several thousand 9MM rounds using Alliant e3 (PCC load) and just this morning while attempting to crank-out a couple hundred rounds, the powder measure stopped dropping any powder.  I only had a couple of minutes to check it and everything seems to be moving as normal just no charge coming out.  I plan to take it off and check it later this evening. 

 

Is it simply dirty enough to clog-up.  I've never had this happen in the previous years reloading on the 550 using the same powder.

It’s either too damp and clumped up or there is a foreign body in there. Usually a bullet or a bug
