  1. I use a truncated 180 grain bullet in front of 4.3 grs of Clays and a Fed 150 primer for my Wild Bunch loads in my '73. The same load works in my Marlin 94 as well. Magnum cases as the 44 special seem to separate in my gun after a couple of loadings. The Mag brass does not.
  2. On this stage, shotgun was last and after firing shooter laid SG down safely and stepped over to pick up his rifle. A hull was partially out of the chamber of the double. Shooter was awarded a minor safety since his hand had left the SG. On the next stage the shotgun was first, rifle second. Shooter shot his SG string, laid the gun down with a hull partially removed and moved to his rifle, picking it up but not levering it and was allowed to go back to the SG and remove the hull. His hands had also left the gun after laying it down. No call. There was some discussion that the shooter had until the unloading table to remove the hull. Is the minor safety call correct? In both cases the SG had left the shooters hands.
  3. A Dillon rep at Winter Range suggested I place a 45acp hull on the top of the plastic follower to give it a little weight, and, to clean the tube every now an then as primer powder residue will build up inside and can cause it not to feed as it should. I did as he suggested and it works well.
  4. I had the same issue and found that the spring in the "case insert Slide" (that black angled thing) had broken. Installed a new spring and it works fine. You might check that spring.
