I failed to receive the new pawl in the mail from Hornady Customer Service, so I removed both pawls from the machine and decided to load a few cases (50) by self-indexing the press.
The primer system seems to be working OK now. The prrimer shuttle system is very sensative to anything getting in the way, especially powder.
From the 50 cases that I loaded using self-indexing, I tore up four cases in Station #1. Staion 1 is the one where I need to use vice grips to remove or install the die into the press with the L-N-L bushing.
The case tears are verticle along the side of the case. The cases are once-fired and lubed. What would cause this?
