Star Reloaders / Powder slide scored by debris
« on: April 27, 2018, 05:28:53 pm »
I've never had this happen before.  I was loading some .45 ACP's when the press started to make a horrible sound when I would pull down on the handle.  I stopped loading and took it apart.  A small piece of debris, that looked like brass had embedded itself in the upper powder slide housing and it cut a groove in the top of the powder slide to the rear of the hole.  I can't imagine where it came from, unless it was in the can of powder I was using; Bullseye.  It would not be the first time I had something foreign in a can of Bullseye.  One time it was a small piece of cardboard.

I could not get whatever it was out of the housing, so I took a fine Swiss file and carefully smoothed it out.  After putting everything back together, it all seemed to work as intended.
