    I started off reloading Remington hulls then tried the Winchester AA's - grey and red. I've probably loaded about 2,000 of the AA's. I've had to deal with a number of issues with the AA's and now going back to the STS's.

    When I tried to reprime the STS's with my MEC loader but it did not seat the primer properly. It did not push the primer all the way into the hull. It still works fine with the AA's. The MEC manual says that there are no adjustments to the reprime station.

    I'm going to call MEC tomorrow but has anyone had this problem?

    I have had a lot of Mec presses over the years and never saw one where you couldn't adjust the reprime station. HMB

    Sent a message last night to MEC and got a quick reply from Ron.

    I just had to tighten the resizing attachment. It had loosened and was lower than it should have been.

    Thanks MEC.
