    Reloading Experts,

    I recently received a 9000H reloader. The problem I am having is at the first station. The brass is getting dished out on the bottom when removing the spent primers. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance, B. Collins

    Clean out between the slots and bottom in the resizing die. It has enough power to flatten a piece of shot to make it appear to be a powder flake!! Clean off the drop tube in case some oil is there also.

    I use "canned air" and dental picks to clean the dies on both of my 9000Hs. I also have learned to clean it after a shot spill too!! Sorta like preventive maintenance? :)

    Thank you all for your suggestions. As you are all probably aware just getting used to the hydraulic reloader there has been some spills of powder and shot. I suspect my problem is related to housekeeping as you suggested.

    Thanks Again, Bob Collins

    Add to Hap's suggestion:a dental pic makes removal of dropped/smashed shot caught in the collet pretty easy.

    I just got mine set up and had exactly the same issue. Canned air did it for me. And yes, I had a lot of spills too before I got it all figured out so I keep a hand vacuum cleaner close too.
