300 AAC and Powder Drop
January 21st, 2015 at 4:20pm
I am loading 300 blackout with the 650. I changed from the AK powder funnel to the powder funnel "C". I switched to the powder funnel "C" because of powder dropping out of the case. When the case falls under the second station the case is fine. I set the mouth flare to about .001. Occasionally I get a bent case mouth. I know this is from the powder funnel because I can feel it and the damage is apparent. I have adjusted the adjustable arm to push the case further in the shell holder. Is there a fix for the mouth cases being crushed? Do I have something out of adjustment?

It sounds like the shellplate bolt isn't tight enough. Push down on the edge of the shellplate at station 4. If it feels springy, then tighten the shellplate bolt down a fraction of a turn further.
