    Not sure I totally understand what is happening, but if the primer is catching on the plate just before it drops into its seating position; make sure that the slot in the collet is opposite of where the primer is entering. Sometimes these will turn just a little and not let the primer drop properly. ???????? check and adjust if that's the case.

    You are probably raising the handle too fast on the last half of the up stroke. This will cause the plate to turn too fast and trap the primer at an odd angle between the plate and the base.

    The remedy is to simply raise the handle a bit slower and smoother, particularly on the last half of the upward stroke.

    Been there. Done that.

    Denden,

    I just read your last post. It sounds like you simply need to adjust the height of the primer tube.

    Easystreet has the right idea. Raising the handle a little slower and steady will do the trick. With my 366 I can laod almost 2 flats per hr. If all the primers jamb check to see if there is a piece of shot in the hole. Mike K.

    Is the rolating plate to loose ?? Enough for the primer to get lodged , if so tighten the nut down just so there is a little play with all the hulls on it but not too tight .
