Wrong finished cartridge chute in strong mount box?

I recently purchased my second 550 from a stocking retailer along with a roller handle and strong mount. The finished cartridge chute that mounts to the strong mount in no way works with this press. I had to bend it and grind it to fit the shell plate. The one on my older press is black and of a different shape. The new one is "stainless" colored and has the letters CF on the front of it. Could the wrong part have been placed in the strong mount box? The label on the box says 550/650 Strong Mount #22051

how many holes are in the center area of the side of a strong mount plate, 4 or 7? For the 550 it should be 7.

They have 7 holes, and they hold the press properly, it's only the chute that has the issue.

Having the same issue. Just got the strong mount and it works great of the press but the cartridge chute, in mounted position interferes with the press handle and the shell plate. At a loss as to what to do.
