That load should work. Do you have too much wad pressure? Do you know how to check it?
MEC's user manuals dont scratch the surface of what info should be in it. IMO.As far as making the adjustments on the machine goes, reading your user manual is better than trying advice from the internet. MEC has free manuals on their site and there you will find answers to any questions regarding machine setup.
If it's a MEC 650, MEC Grabber or 9000 load 1 shell at a time until finished. If you want to stop the shell carrier plate from advancing on the 9000 remove this part from the lower right side of the machine.I still don’t know how to put it into single stage mode
Well that is fixable, it should not operate that way if correctly set up and adjusted.Everytime I pull the handle it will drop shot and powder.
If you go to mecs website you you can down load how to set this press up and troubleshoot any problems you may have
Once you guys are with SGW longer you will come to learn how truly poor MEC's manuals are at troubleshooting most issues and that they are not always the correct solution.A simple cam adjustment will close the shell. Read your manual or call Mec.
