    Has anyone had success loading winchester 20ga dove and quail load shells. About every couple of shells they just crush and buckle up. Using a MEC 600 junior. I have no problems with the winchester AA shells but these just give me greif. Any suggestions or tips

    Thanks Steve

    Check to see where the buckle is starting, is it at the crimp starter or "usually" the final crimp. Usually at 1 of those stations, when you find the culprit raise that die a little. That said those D & Q hulls really aren't meant to be reloaded, if lucky you may get 1 or 2 loads and toss.Ross Puls

    I find that sometimes the snail cam adjustment on the last station can buckle hulls.
    It just needs to be backed off a bit from your normal "high quality hull" adjustment.
    I have the same problem with Fed. Top Gun 12ga, hulls and find this helps.
