Acquired a bunch of old style AA 28 guage hulls. Having trouble starting the wad down into the shell without it catching and making a mess out of the end of the shell,with my Mec 9000. So what I learned was that if I took my finger and stuck it in the shell and opened it up a little before I deprimed it, I then had no problem starting the wad. but what a PIA, anybody run into this before.

Check your wad guide condition and height / alignment.

^^^^^yep.
You can always get a surveyor's plumb Bob, invert it on your bench, and widen the mouths just a little. Works well on older hulls that stay a little more closed.

Almost without exception, that condition is caused by a wad guide adjusted too high. Lower the wad guide in small increments till the problem goes away. Be careful not to adjust it too low as that will cause other problems.

Cured my similar problem by making sure that the wad guide was properly centered above the hull. Result? 100% cured the problem

Also, make sure you are using the proper (pink) wad - the newer AA-HS (red) wads have a slightly larger diameter base, and can also cause that problem.
