    I was just reloading 410's and had a primer not seat correctly in the cup. got caught and squashed then went off in my face... Wow! that woke me up. There's a first for me. P/W 800+ w/electric drive. Been having problems loading the 410's smoothly. I can't feel any resistance with the electric drive.

    Did a piece of shot get in the primer seating cup? 410 reloaders are famous for spreading shot around. Ron

    Makes you check your pants for sure. It also brings an entirely new flinch to the sport for a while. Flinching is not just for the shooting line any more

    That is the real downside of the electric or hydraulic drive no matter what machine it may be on. You have no feel for when something may be going wrong.

    That is a problem with the electric drive on my PW800+ also. One does not know anything is wrong until you hear a crack, pop, grunt, etc. Then you remove all the shells, find out what failed and reset the machine. Part of reloading with the electric drive....

    I have considered going to a MEC9000H or E but I really like being able to stop in mid cycle and fix a problem before it becomes a larger issue. Happens to some degree or another every time I load.
