    I have a 9000g and last run something has come out of adjustment. The shells have a pouch to them on the crimp, the crimp is not laying flat it is lifted up. I am not for sure if the problem is in the 1st crimp station or the 2nd crimp station....Any and all help would be great before I start adjusting, the manual is a little vague on this issue....
    Thank You
    T.J.

    Not sure what you mean on " a pouch " but give mec a quick call ,, they are more than helpful

    Ditto on the MEC techs they are very helpful. The downloadable manual also has suggestion of crimp problems.

    If your crimps are sticking up in the middle, did you change wads? Usually a slightly longer wad will cause this problem.

    Remember --- all loading presses work on the outside of the shell. What you put inside the shell is what matters. Did you change powder charges? Did you change shot charge, or size? Also Check for dirt or anything that might be on the platten. (The base where the shell sits and travels to the next station)
    Presses just don't go out of adjustment.

    I had the "cone" as I would put it when I was getting my new MEC 9000G dialed in. I adjusted the second crimp station down SLIGHTLY and now have proper depth on the crimps. Make sure both the pre-crimp and second crimp stations are tight as well..

    And I agree with Chuck that if you didn't change loads in some way, it's a little harder to figure out. But I do think that a press can go "out of adjustment" if something is loose!
