RE: 40sw not enough bell

I suspect there is either wear or damage to the connector body collar that is causing this. Another possibility is that the hole in the powder measure body where the bellcrank bolt goes could be cracked.

 Be sure you have a W powder funnel as well.

Inspect these parts, let us know what you need.

RE: 40sw not enough bell

May I know what part you replaced as I am finding myself having the same issue. The powder die is all the way down and there is no further adjustment that can be made. I have the W funnel; and with inspection the plastic collar appears to be fine and I cant find anything that is cracked or broken.

Im interested what part you changed that corrected this problem please.

I think they are talking about part 13845 Collar Sleeve.  See page 5 of the owners manual.
