    On the last round I was going to do on 9mm n then change to .40 I have a primer stuck almost sideways jammed into one of the holes in the primer ring.

    I have the primer system out but how do I go about getting the jammed primer out?

    I did call Dillon, and I said I would get the primer system out.
    Well, I did that, now I guess I need to call them to get a new one.

    You should be able to remove the primer system completely off the press, remove the primer magazine tube and take off the screw that holds the primer wheel shim. That should break everything loose.

    You should be able to push it out. Unless I miss understand what you are saying. Lot of times I use the stick part of a Q-tip the ones that have a wooden handle or stick.how ever you want to call them.

    Make sure the brass tip on the primer tube and the disc are free of burrs and nicks. You should have spares in your spare parts kit. I wonder why it went in sideways?

    Make sure the magazine shield cap is down tight. The two primer system mounting bolts are tight. If you have any bounce in your reloading bench that could cause that also.

    gotcha, thanks.
    I'm changing calibers tonight and I'll make sure those bolts are tight.

    Also make sure the screw that holds the primer support shim is on tight. Since it is a new press. The person putting the primer magazine assembly together might not have tightened it down all the way. And you do have the small primer disk installed.

    i had that same problem and it turned out to be to much bounce. My reloading table doesnt give any now and the whole press runs smoother.

    It's not the bench or Press moving. Mine is stable.

    Now I have an issue with the priming system. It will rotate all day long if there are no primers in the primer disc. As soon as the first primer gets to the primer pusher, it won't rotate on the down stroke. It will stop the down stroke half way through. If I lower the press n then nudge the Primer Indexing Arm and then pull the handle, it will rotate the priming disc. I think the jam I had screwed the priming system up.

    Im going to have to call Dillon today to get a new priming system.

    I've also noticed, when I switched from 9mm to .40, while testing the priming, that when it primes, the primer punch isn't seating the primer fully. Is it also necessary to adjust the primer punch when switching calibers, even if your using the same primer Disc. (Small pistol)?

    Small punch, small disk for both 9 and 40. Make sure the punch is screwed in all the way. I would say your shell plate is too loose. There is no adjustment on seating depth for you to make. If you take off the primer magazine off? When you put it back on. Start the two bolts in then push the handle forward. The primer punch will protrude through the primer disk. With the handle still forward tighten the two bolts.
    Your other problem call Dillon.

    Thanks, I did call Dillon just now and they think it might be several things to check first.

    1st, make sure the shell plate isn't loose. If the shell plate is loose it might cause the primer indexing not to index and not seat the primer fully.

    2nd, make sure the adjustment to the primer station locator tab is adjusted for the .40 caliber (it came with 9mm on it and I was loading 9mm when the jam happened)....it should be a business card width away.

    3rd, make sure the camming pin was adjusted for .40 caliber.

    If that doesn't work, call Dillon back.

    it's the adjustment for pushing the case into station 1 when it comes out of the case feeder.

    page 38 and 39 of the xl650 Manual.
