Trouble with MEC Super 600 SG press?

Recommended Posts

I purchased a used MEC Super 600 shotgun reloading press from a close friend recently. After reloading 6 boxes of 12 ga shells I began to have trouble seating the primers. They lack about 1/32" of seating completely into the shell base. I called MEC tech service and checked several items he suggested including the length of the primer seating rod and spring tension on the primer seating tube. So far I still have the same difficulty.

 

Any suggestions from someone who may have had the same problem?

 

Much obliged for any assistance.

I don't know what the difference of the super model is but I would think if you unscrewed the ram for priming and placed a washer or 2 on top of it, it should seat all the way. Different hulls are thinner at the base than other brands Federal is one that seems to have greater volume. Gary

It sounds like something is preventing the press from going fully to the bottom of the stroke. Make a careful check to make sure there isn't some obstruction causing it not to fully cycle. Sometimes a piece of lead shot will find a spot that causes this to happen.

Like Dee Mac Jack said. It could be the station one size ring or die unscrewed and is keeping the unit from coming down all the way. Gary
