    Need help with resizing Federal Paper Hulls on a MEC Size Mater reloader. The fingers on the resizing collet seem to be putting and indentation in the hull. Just wandering what I have to do to get this problem solved. Thanks. Bob

    The collet on the Size master can be adjusted to give more or less compression. You may need a little less. It is not difficult to do this. Check your user manual or go to the MEC website and download a user manual for the Size master.

    Mine used to do that and it was no big deal. If the paper hull is swollen from moisture and then re-dried, you may get some compression marks.

    If you decrease the compression and the finished shell is hard to chamber, you may have to add some compression and just live with the compression marks.
