DILLON 550C PRIMER ISSUE


Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried one of those plastic extensions that attach to the spent primer cup?  My spent primers will often go on the floor, onto the primer slide area or other parts of the machine.  Very frustrating as it will frequently jam the primer slide.

Are there any known fixes to this problem?

I swapped with a paper clip as well. I also drilled and tapped the spent primer cup and put barb fitting in it so that i can run tube to larger can.

 

I found that if you use something like wd40 specialis(silicon lube) on the parts of the primer catcher it will move smoother. Dont need to coat everything just where the metal rubs metal.

 

As for the path of the primer shuttle ,Keep a can of compressed air and give it a shot every time you fill primer mag. (i did upgrade to the ballbearing guide which helped smooth the opperation. Also a little rebending of the bar that operates the priming may be needed from time to time
