    Are you sure that your 9 mm cases aren't GI and have crimped primers?

    I use Federal primer for all my revolver loads and Winchester for my semi auto pistols. Never experienced an issue with the use of Federal primers in my Dillon 550.

    I seem to remember hearing that Dillon had a warning on their website about certain primers used with their equipment. Might check that out?

    Alca: If your ases are crimped, you will need a primer pocket chamferng tool (10.00 to 12.00)or a Dillon 600 Swage tool (Approx 100.00). Both do a good job but the Dillon tool is for an advanced loader or one who loads hundreds of military cases. Remember, you only have to do it once.
