    All I need to do now is set the primer stop and powder measure. I ran into a big wall!!!!!

    I'm trying to get the primer depth just right, I'm almost flush when I realize the return spring ( the one wraped around the spent primer tube) is preventing the shellplate from going any lower thus preventing a deeper primer seat, regardless of how much I shorten the primer stop.

    I was considering cutting a coil of the return spring, so i got out my heavy duty wire cutters. Not a scratch on the return spring, just a dent in my wire cutters!! :mad:

    I was also considering taking out the return spring all together.

    Has anyone else ran into this problem?? What did you do about it??

    I'm loading .45acp btw. Thanks all

    You can also use a quarter (or other item of desired thickness) as a shim where the primer punch engages the press frame.
