    The re-sizing die on the Grabber is a 'consumable' wear-part. Replace it and you'll get another 10yrs of teflon-ish hulls.

    The 8567n 'Grabber' has the 'power ring' re-sizer (the same as the Jnr.) and not the collet, I believe.

    The 650n, which many people mis-call a 'Grabber', has no re-sizing capabilities.

    What makes the Grabber a "grabber" is the collet sizing station which "grabs" the head of the hull and resizes it. Been using one since 1980 and have only had to replace wad fingers and the crimp die.

    Yup, my bad. I just looked at the exploded view. Thanks, Stan. Rev's collet needs adjusting or replacing.

    The 650 does INDEED have the capability to resize hulls. It is done as a separate operation with a sizing adaptor.

    If the grabber has a collet, just clean, lube, and adjust it. If it's worn or broken, replace it. Measure the resized hull as a guide.
