Jamming on Ejector tab

I am having a problem with my finished rounds jamming against the ejector tab. Maybe 4-5 times per hundred the round will hit the flat part of the tab and we have a sudden stop which is pretty annoying when you are cranking along. I have bent the tab and maybe that helps a bit, but I am still jamming up. What should I be looking at?

RE: Jamming on Ejector tab

What caliber are you loading? What number/letter is stamped on the shellplate? Push down on the edge of the shellplate at station 7. If it feels springy, then the shellplate lock ring needs to be snugged a bit more.

Loading 9mm. #5 and no springing. I think it's just bent from a couple of hard jams. I will order an extra when I order up some extra parts.
