    For those with Dillon 650 having problems with spilling powder when loading small cases (e.g. 9mm) filled to the brim, this will help. The cost of the parts, including shipping, is less than $10. Removes the snap and play out of the shellplate as it moves from station to station. The washer/ball bearing/washer installs between the shellplate and bolt. PM me if you have any questions.

    So sorry- the detent ball and spring under the shellplate to slow down the snap is a easy fix.
    Remove the shell plate, remove ball carefully, then remove spring, with a sharp metal cutter snip off a small piece of the spring, about 1/8". Reinstall all parts, reload see what effect this cut has been.
    If not good enough, REPEAT, remember, you cant put metal back on,SO , 1/8 again and test. Lee

    The info in this post cured the jump in my 650. Copy/paste.

    Also, have a magnet handy in case the detent ball falls into the bolt hole. ;-)
