(I JB welded a fender washer over it.)
True. I’ve taken notice of that crater that’s growing over time. I assumed sooner or later, it would impact the primer seating depth.
Just call Hornady, they'll send you into one for free. And while you've got them on the phone have them send you a primer slide too.
I'm obviously either cheaper or less handy than you. I took some painter's tape and taped a nickle over the indention
Put the ram up and you can unscrew the primer assy,
this thing. You can take it out with a 7/16" wrench. I had one that was doing that, I worked it over on a wet stone and took the dimple off of it.
The dimple on mine was there from when it was new and is from the person that machined it off, didn't have his tool bit in the center of the work piece so when it got to the center of the punch it didn't clean it off and left a small point.
Call Hornady and get a new one coming from them, then take the old one and stone the point off of it. If you mess it up you aren't out anything, if you don't mess it up you have a spare.
But it shouldn't have been like that to start with.
