Powder Funnel

I have a XL750 and been reloading around 500 rounds so far on my new press now all of a sudden it’s stopped dropping powder and when I go to seat the primer it peels back the brass,now on the powder funnel it should have some up and down movement correct . It’s doing great all of a sudden this happened.need help
Thanks

RE: Powder Funnel

Correct. The powder funnel will have a little vertical play. You can move it slightly with your finger when when the shell plate is lowered.

Have you disassembled the powder measure from the powder funnel die? I suggest checking the distance the powder funnel rises when a case is raised fully. If the funnel does not rise high enough to raise the powder measure, no powder will drop.

Also check to confirm the failsafe rod is installed correctly.

Does the powder bar complete its full travel just before the handle reaches full up and full down?

Looking forward to hearing your reply as I am also a new reloader.

RE: Powder Funnel

Found the problem disassembled the powder drop and found powder caked around the powder funnel stopping upward movement cleaned upped every thing and works perfect now ; going to put a dehumidifier downstairs and also dump powder out if I’m not reloading
