I'm another person with primers that won't seat all the time. Is there an adjustment on the press that you can use to change the seating depth like I had on my lee turret? I can't belive a press that costs as much as a dillon does doesn't have a better system. I am going up as far as the handle will allow,dillon says you need to put about 25 pounds of pressure on it,I am. Where were you talking about an adjustment on the primer tube? any help appreciated. thanks sj

Have you tryed calling dillon?

I have been loading with the square Deal B
and have not had one problum with the priming system. In fact it is so easy and reliable I could'nt think of any thing easyer.


I would recommend calling dillon, as they are great in customer service.

I have used all brands of Pimers but Prefer
CCI Has they seem to load easyer!

Hey there should be an adjustment on the machine,just look at the instructions supplied or if you lost them ,they have a set on the net also,on the 1050 its a small allen set screw that you screw in or out to set the depth on the Square deal b it should be similar

My table is fastened to the wall and floor and it is rock solid,but I am using cci primers. This is the first I've heard about the dillon having a preference for what kind of primers it takes.

I have had serious problems with Winchester large pistol primers both jamming in my loading tubes and in my feeder tube on my Dillon SDB. I have now used about 3k CCI primers with not one jam. Believe me I went through hell trying to figure it out, I measured, looped, and lubed (figuritivly speaking of course) the d@mn things and even tried to run a .22 brass brush down my tubes thinking I had done something to foul them up. I still have no idea but I do have a lot of Winchester primers in the scrap pile

The incompatibility of CCI primers and Dillon reloaders is well known. When I started using my SDB 10 years or so ago, I had problems seating the primers. Called up Dillon, first question they asked was 'Using CCI primers?'

Have used several thousand Rem and Win primers since with no problems. Walt

Walt, thanks for the info. I'm going to a gunshow tomorrow and I'll pick up a box of w-w and see how they work. sj
