Well, inspite of so many people suggesting against it, I bought a LNL progressive press. I tried to set it up yesterday but couldn't get the powder measure to work. Specifically the measure only returns 50% when the shell plate is back down. It will return all the way if I take out the metering insert, so I am pretty sure it is related to the friction between the metering insert and the metering housing. I did degrease and add dry lube before attempting to assemble. Has anyone else had this issue? I was planning to take some steel wool to the edge where the metering housing is rubbing on the metering insert. Any other thoughts on how to address this issue?
