primer feed trouble

I got my new Square Deal B set up and loaded 100 rounds of 44sp with no trouble. I had some extra brass so I fed new primers into the tube and started to load. No primers. The primers are not dropping thru the red end of the feed tube.  I tried to remove the feed tube and it came out but the red tip stayed in. I did rotate the tube before removing it. Tried moving the screw 1/8 turn as suggested in the manual with no luck. The primers are making it down to the end of the red tip but wont pass thru it

RE: primer feed trouble

Unbolt the primer feed from the front of the machine and turn it upside down, pour the remaining primers out. Then use a small flat blade screwdriver to push the red tip out of the housing. The machine included a spare tip.

RE: primer feed trouble

I would always want to follow Dillons advice first. So just a bit of personal experience. After about 15 years, I had trouble with my large pistol primers not always dropping. I pulled the tube and the issue was the 'fingers' at the tip were too tight. I spread the fingers a little and issue was resolved.

RE: primer feed trouble

LOOK at page 4 of manual..  primer slide adjustment.. Measure 1.41.  Reassemble and put a new primer orifice and try that.  Same issue with 45acp for me, I have never had dealing with as nice and helpful company.
