RF100

Sorry I speak french, this machine is not work good, it is impossible to charge one tube with all the primer the same size, this system is not the best, now I return by hand is faster and no reject, with the machine I have a lot of bad ammo, this is not fast you have to check each primer to be sure is fall the good side, very expensive for this, other products from Dillon is very good, but not the RF100

RE: RF100

The RF100 can be finicky, depending on the concentricity of the primers you are using. You are welcome to send it to us and we can check the adjustments. Please email your address information to sales@dillonprecision.com , let us know what size and brand of primers you are using, and we will create a return authorization for you to ship it to us. We will optimize the adjustments for those particular primers.

RE: RF100

My RF100 is getting a lot of sideways primers. Can you tell me what adjustment needs to be made to correct this?

The colored plastic insert that goes up into the underside of the primer bowl must float a bit. Snug the screw until it touches the flange of this plastic adapter, then back it out 3/4 turn.

RE: RF100

I've never had flipped primers with my RF100 until today; happened immediately after changing primers. Mic of the primers revealed that they were 3000th (.003) shorter. This also caused primers to enter into the tube sideways. Original primers were 0.119 in height, new ones are 0.116-0.117 height. I did loosen the screw underneath but there is no float or movement of the plastic insert. I will work to get this a little looser and see if the float helps. Hope this helps understand potential cause

RE: RF100

I had been fighting the battle of flipped LP primers for quite a number of weeks.

Finally found that the machine was vibrating too strongly. I turned the speed control down to where the primers were 'just' moving along the ramp and NO MORE flipped or stuck primers

I'm back to being a happy camper
