    Help. I’m reloading Remington 410 hulls with Win. 209 primers with a Mec Grabber reloader. About 3 hulls in every 25 reloads the primers won’t seat all the way in. If I catch it, I just dump the powder, put in a used or spent primer upside down in the primer seat pocket, then slowly press it all the way in, also I’ve lowered the primer seat punch (both Mec’s advice). But sometimes the primer doesn’t stick out or not seat quite far enough to stick or catch in my reloader so I don’t know it’s happing till it’s over. Obviously when it sticks I pull the shell dump the powder, wait till I’m done reloading then press the primer in all the way and finish the shell. A real pain. Any solutions?

    eightshot: This is not uncommon problem, winchesterr's seem a little tight, same w/ Rem 20's after the second reload it seems to get better. This has been my experience.

    Use a 15/64 drill bit in a tap holder to ream-out the primer hole as the Win 209 primer is longer than Rem STS primer. Try it, it works even though it's a pain in the a$$. It only needs to be done for the first reloading. -- Rich

    Use a CCI 209 SC for the first reload, then you should be good to go for win209. Cheddite may also work for 1st reload

    Mine go flush at the crimp station. No problem after that.

    This is common with once-fired Remington hulls. It occurs because the Winchester primer is longer than the Remington primer. The plastic inside the base resists letting the longer primer seat all the way. Just be careful seating the primer, making sure it goes in all the way.
    Once the hull has been reloaded once with Winchester primers, the problem will go away.

    On the first reload, scrape the plastic out with a pocket knife. The primer should fit right in with no issues from that point forward.
