9 mm cases in the "Freeloader"
« on: August 30, 2009, 02:29:08 pm »
I'm using a home made copy of the "Freeloader" and in running my 1st 9's am getting a large number of upside down case feeds. Have any of you encountered this problem? Will a smaller diameter tube work or solve the problem?

I have used this freeloader for years & many rounds of 38's & 45's.

Hi Ron:

You may want to make the hole(s) thru which the cases drop through a wee bit smaller.  A hole punch and a clear coffee can lid made of plastic (with the rim trimmed off) would be the ticket.  I saw a YouTube video by a guy who fixed this problem using the above.  I think he was using a case reloader from Lee called a Loadmaster.   He showed a step by step process for the fix.  The was getting 3 wrong ways per tube and by making the drop hole a wee bit smaller he eliminated that issue.

If you go to YouTube and do a search on ...  Lee Loadmaster 9mm Case Collator Modification
the you will find this great video...  The guy does a super job of showing the problem and the fix....

This may help you...
