Looking for some suggestions regarding an issue with my 650. Reloader was originally set up for 9mm and no issues with brass feeding. Converted to .40 several years ago and no issue.

Just converted back to 9mm and am getting a disproportionately large number of brass casings coming down the tube upside down. Am using the "Small Pistol" case feeder plate.

Any suggestions or Best Practices?

Thanks much.

I have never had that happen Nick. I did have it happen if I left the large pistol plate in the case feeder

I sent you a text Nick. Some pics of case feeder setup for 9mm. Mine came preset for 9mm, but I know there are two adjustment points. The metal plate on outside above the funnel and the blue scoop inside bowl can be raised/lowered I think.

If I put cases upside down in the plate by hand then turn it on. They fall out even before they reach the top, as they are top heavy.

I would check that your bowl is level and that the plate is pushed down far enough.

on my 1050 I had the same problem ended up Dillion has a small funnel that goes between the exit area of the plate and the tube, just above the switch, in some models there's enough room for the brass to fall thru the plate, rotate upside down and then go down the tube, if you can't figure it our call Dillion they will send you the funnel for free!
