    All the contact info is here George.

    Page 5 at the top of the page tells you about the brass washer on a 650.

    Other manuals are on mec's webpage......http://www.mecreloaders.com.

    George, are you asking about an "adjustable bar?"

    If you are, it depends on what brass washer you are asking about. The newer adjustable bars have what they refer to as a "brass washer" around the adjusting screws. Those bars turn the opposite direction as the old bars to lock them in.

    If you are referring to the brass washer on top of the powder, between the bar and a powder baffle, it is different than the original mec brass washer. Thicker with no dimples in it.

    If you are asking about the older MEC bars that do not use a bushing. Your reloader should have come with a brass washer with little dimples in it to go between the grommet and the bar. If you do not have one, call MEC

    It's only important if you use a small grain powder and the powder leaks out. A bar with bushings uses the same brass washer.

    I use the brass washer atop the bar with the rubber grommet above it touching the bottle. Works good to stop powder migration between the bar surface and opening with ball powders. I expect if you use all flake powder like Red Dot you could skip the brass washer.
