Any one else having a problem with new L-n-L model 95100 system powder drop. The case activated power drop keeps loosening in press bushing receiver. After every dozen rounds or so I notice a slight under load change in powder cop reading and I have to give the power dump a little twist. I have changed o-ring and bushing on dump to test but condition persists. This problem seems to be in press housing lock insert or the weight of the whole case activated power drop hanging there. Are the inserts in press housing replaceable? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank You

Thanks a bunch "jbrown13", I did search but your suggested thread is right on target. I love the press, can be a little fussy wit 9mm but best unit I've ever seen. My problem is accessory madness. I just installing my hornady auto case feeder and ordered the new RCBS bullet Feeder Kit. $$$ Should be fast as hell when full auto.

did you buy the case feeder recently? I have been looking for one for a while, but it's sold out everywhere :(

Amazon has them, but they are a little steep. http://www.amazon.com/Hornady-Lock-Load-Automatic-Feeder/dp/B000PD1X8A/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1268068490&sr=1-12

You can try manventureoutpost.com That is where I bought my press and several other parts. They show to be out right now but send there customer service an email and they will notify you when they have it in. Here is the link for the feeder, it is 254 there.

Hey Metalax,
What powder r u using?
Is it ball or flake?
Do you have the small pistol rotor installed?

My small rotor works perfectly with WSF & #5, not so good with the large flakes of American Select
If the die continues to twist out.. try teflon tape over the oring or fiber tape two dies together to prevent the twisting.
