 Post subject: Trouble converting MEC 600 from 12 to .410 and questions

First off, does anyone know how to tell the difference between the 2.5” shell crimper and the 3” shell crimper? The only visual difference between the two to me is where the roller is positioned. One is higher than the other.

Station 1 - I continually get significant flaring and sometimes rolling over of the open shell end during deprime and resize. Is there an adjustment for this?

Station 3 - often times the wad does not seem to want to go down without a decent amount of force. Is this normal for .410? My 28 gauge doesn’t do this. Also, on occasion the wad wants to pull out when I left the lever after dropping shot. I’m not using wad pressure but have confirmed the wad is being placed directly on top of the poweder and no air gap. Any advice?

Yes unscrew the resizer die from the die head, the deprime punch is then adjustable on its threaded shaft.

No, could you be cocking the wad on the way in??

Pause at the bottom to assure that its not trapped air pressure pushing it up.
Polish and wax the OD of the drop tube so the wad slides off.
