success with RF 100

I was having similar problems with LP primers when I went to Winchester primers. Federals were great but 'not to be found'

I even took out the 4 screws that hold the clear Lexan cover on, put two of them back in FROM THE BOTTOM of the holes and this way it is easy to remove the cover to get at the stablizer tray. THIS TOTALLY DEFEATS THE SAFETY ASPECT OF THE COVER--yes I know that.

After days and untold hours of 'messing' with it I hit on a solution for Winchester primers: run the machine at the slowest speed that will "just" move the primers. Some times I end up with a few that didn't make it down the tube (ran out of time?) but I get them the next time.

So far I'm done 500 primers and it's working!

Big test will be when I reinstall the Lexan cover correctly

RE: success with RF 100

In my experience, these machines are very fussy. Took me a while to figure out my machine only likes CCI primers. Anything else will jam. My buddy, on the other hand, his machine only like Winchester primers. As much as I have tinkered with this machine, I can't explain why. However, since you found what your machine likes, I suggest you stick with it.
