    Wayne you have an open ended question here. What issues are you having? I am suspecting you are having issues with the primer not seating deep enough, correct?

    No problem loading them on my 37 year old 366. They seem to be hard on firing pins though.

    Fifteen two and a pair is four.

    Cheddites don't fit the Remington primer pocket very well. I double bump the primer on my Dillon 900, but the electric PW800+ installs them with no problem.

    Be more specific please. It's the same as someone saying they don't feel well; it means absolutely nothing to me or anyone else.

    That's a new one on me...I loaded a thousand this week (on my Spolar) STS and Nitro's once fired.
    Problems? None.

    ken1okie, do you have hydraulics? I have the same problem as Mike.

    Yes, I have hydraulics on my Spolar....as a side note I loaded some once fired 20's (STS) on my MEC 9000G last night and experienced no seating problems either.
    All with Cheddites.

    ken1okie , I load on a PW using my arm and could not avoid the issue. So aggravating I stopped loading Rem and load AA's. That was with Win and Cheddite primers. I loaded 200 STS once fired not long ago with Noble Sport primers and noticed no problem. That surprised me.

    Perhaps using the hydro setup allows the press to push through more completely than using my arm, just guessing.
    The problem is real and there is no adjusting for it.

    Cheddies have been the perfect find for me a few years ago when Winchesters dried up in the previous ammo scare. Don't care if I ever buy Winchesters again. Have ran thousands through my MECs with no problems. Don't have piercing problems shooting them in my Browning or Berettas either.

    The Remington hulls, as have been noted, have the extra plastic in the primer pocket. I was able to fix two problems with a 15/64 drill.

    My browning was piercing the Cheddite primers and they were hard to seat in the Remington hull.

    Drilled them out and no more problems. It takes about 10 minutes to drill 100 hulls and it's an easy fix.
