Star Reloaders / priming difficulties (.32 Long)
« on: August 11, 2008, 05:24:05 pm »
I am having some difficulties in priming for the .32 Long. About 20-30% of the primers tend to go in slightly crooked and are somewhat distorted along one side of the primer cup. I have cleaned out the primer assembly but still have some difficulties with this. When lowering the handle, I often feel some resistance near the bottom of the stroke. Also, slight resistance to the travel of the primer slide often occurs about 1/2-way in. I am using Winchester small pistol primers.

I read over the instructions for adjusting the primer slide by bending the cam (p/n 49) in or out, but that doesn't seem to make sense. The cam, which is attached by a screw to the toolhead, is a sturdy part not easily bent.

I had no difficulty when loading .38 Spcl, but it seems to occur when switching over to the .32. Should I clean out the primer slide raceway near the main shaft? I have tried both my primer assembies, which are fairly new, and still have the same problem.
