A thin piece of leather, 1/16" thick that I cut on a laser. It works great! My prototype was felt and it worked good, but not this good. 

I removed the thrust bearing and everything is back factory with the added leather washer. Barney purple was all I had but I'm rolling with it!

My best solution before I got a bullet feeder was to place my finger on plate as it reached bottom of stroke. My hand was there ready with a bullet anyway. The detent spring reduction did help me too. Now that I'm using bullet feeder I'm just dealing it's not that bad for me 9 and 45 are both less than half full and everything else is bottle neck

How does the washer affect the shell plate jerk?

 

I guess it's not obvious to me.

 

Thanks!

My guess would be it creates friction between the ejector wire and the plate

Yeah, it's just a point of friction and completely smooths out the shellplate indexing. I tried cutting the detent spring, changing the detent ball to nylon, adding the thrust bearing, adding grease to the thrust bearing... It all helped, but this seems to have fixed it. Granted, I've only loaded 1600 like this, but so far we're grand

Is the hole through the middle the same size as the screw?

It's the OD of the head of the shoulder bolt. The first one I made was .750 ID and was a little big. My final size was 1.5 OD and .7 ID.
