380 problems

I have a xl650 that’s just over a year old. When loading 380’s the case feeder is locking up. I have to back it up so it will run. I’m only putting in a handful at a time and still have problems. I’m using the small pistol case plate. Never had a problem with 9mm. Also the cases hang all of the time when feeding. I’m using the green adapter. I load 9mm, 45acp, and 223. Haven’t had problems with those.

Thanks,
Don

RE: 380 problems

Reading all old posts I’ve ordered the white adapter. Hopefully that fixes the one problem. Now a little help with the case feeder locking up when cycling the 380 cases.

RE: 380 problems

You need the white "380" adapter. Also, be sure you are using the #3 shell plate and the #3 station 1 locator. ( 9mm uses the #5), all the rest of the conversion parts are the same as 9mm. There is AT 500 funnel (#16617) you can put in the case feeder to help stop the jamming.
I ran into these same issues, and this works for me.
