I have a gun (early BT-99)that is extremely picky about the diameter of a reloaded shell . Currently my MEC 9000E spits shells out resized to .808/.809 . The BT 99 does not like these shells . When I attempt to tighten the collet the slightest little bit it causes the shell lifter to pass through and become wedged in the shell lifter bracket . Has anyone ever dealt with this issue ? Is there an adjustment that I am missing ? Need shells resized to .805/.806 . Thanks for any help you may offer .

Are you saying that your shell lifter gets bound up in the collet And does not reach the bottom when you try to size smaller?

The shell lifter somehow passes through the lifter bracket . I did not pay attention as to where it was in the collet . I had to pry it upward to free it .

When the lifter fork is full down and the "E" clip on the lifter fork rod is resting on the base,
the lifter has to be bottomed out in the collet AND not resting in the forks of the lifter.
So my first suggest would be to check this and drop the lifter fork enough to achieve it.

You can see the gap required in the picture
