powder bar over-travel

I'm loading 9mm on my 550 and am having a bit of an issue with the powder bar/belling . When I adjust for just-right bell, the powder bar travels too far and presses the cube against the back of the housing (the cube has now cracked). If I adjust for not-enough bell, the bar travels is just right but the pc bullets suffer. I'm thinking it can be fixed by placing a shim on top of the powder funnel, but first I wanted to see if anyone else has had this issue?

I've loaded many thousands of 9mm and have never had that problem. Make sure you have the correct powder funnel.

Your brass cases should not be tough enough to crack anything on the press, that brass should split open due to mal-adjustment long before you damage the power measure... If you have cracks you have some other issue probably unrelated to your adjustment. I suggest you call Customer Service.
