Primer pick-ups

Just got my Dillon 550 up and running. Only issue , if it's even that, is my small primer pick-up tube. First time I've used one so bare with me. Is it normal once you get say 60 or 70 in or so for the weight of them to start dropping back out the pick-up end. A little finesse in tipping it at an angle immediately after a pick up seems to help but if I turn it almost 60 or 70 degrees for the next pick up I could have 4 or 5 fall out. This gets a bit worse as I add more.

It sounds like the plastic pickup tip is damaged. Swap the tip for one of the included spares of the same color.
