What primers do you use in your Spolar reloader? Do Cheddites work?
Steve, I'd be interested in hearing what you think might be happening with the Feds.i have been using winchester 209's in my spolar, tried federal primers and my machine kept jamming up
The new ones aren't. I trimmed down the tray's of the old ones and did it that way. Luckily I am out of the old stock now so I don't have to do that anymore.For those that load Cheddites, do you have any tricks to load the primers in the tray, since the primer box is wider that the primer tray?
Hi John, i had the same problem as you with the federal primers jamming up the primer slide, i made sure everything was cleaned and even polished it up with some steel wool and cleaned after that and the same problem kept happening, as soon as i tried winchester 209 primers the problem was gone, haven't had it jam in over 700 reloadsSteve, I'd be interested in hearing what you think might be happening with the Feds.
I load all Fed 209A, and I haven't had any real problems, but last weekend I did have one get caught in the primer slide (the part that slides to the left and delivers the primer to the seating post.) It seems as that slide would slide back to the right, it is pinching the primer. It was during this jam that I broke the chute off the base of the primer deflector.
After I got it set up again, it happened one more time. This time, a spent primer got underneath the primer post, not allowing it to drop down all the way. That one was easier to fix.
So interested to hear about your Fed 209A episodes.
