    Mec 9000 machine. Powder drop tube splitting the haul. Looks like the tube is not centering in the Haul.Everything in the turret seems to be lined up,hits against the stop on the right side as it should.

    Has anyone else experienced this, Any solution?

    Thanks in advance

    Dennis, is this a new 9000gn? If it is it might be the primer drop tube instead of the powder drop tube. I had a little trouble with mine when I first set it up. I had to center the primer drop tube between the deprime punch and the powder drop because the primer drop tube was hitting the hull and causing problems.

    It is an older machine, 6 to 8 years old. It is the powder tube not the primer tube. It is the hydraulic machine. Seems to have just started, sure has me puzzled. I will call Mec tomorrow if I do not find an answer soon.

    Dennis, make sure the primer seating spring and plunger is seated in the machine properly. If not seated properly, it will tilt the hull allowing the tube to shave the hull.

    Problem solved. The tube on the 200 primer drop tray was too close to the powder drop tube. Minor adjustment and back in business.I had replaced the upper linkage a few weeks ago and had to remove the tray in doing so. Did not get the tray reinstalled as it was prior.

    Thanks for everyone`s help

    Whenever you have a problem with a MEC machine,call MEC. Be standing in front or near your machine with phone in hand. They will have you up & running before you can say Spolar.
