When I place a RGL on station one on my MEC JR (primer removal stn) the hull sticks to the tube and is difficult to remove remove - Suggested cure?

The decapper stem is adjustable to allow the eject function to push
the hull head past the sizing ring.

https://www.mecshootingsports.com/Content/documents/600JrMark5.pdf

Unscrew the support tube with the sizing ring.

Loosen the nut above the decapping punch.

Screw the decapping punch down to lengthen the assembly

Tighten the nut above the decapping punch

Reassemble the support tube.

This should start you on the correct path

Mike

To make it clearer, the tube seems wider than the inside body of the hull and the whole length is difficult to remove from the de-caping tube. I l have to twist wiggle the hull and pull down with a bit of force to get it off. Slows the process down a lot and is very hard on my thumb and fore finger.
BTW thanks Mike sorry for the confusion!

It' those crispy crimps. You need to open em up a bit. A brass Plum Bob from Menards for $5.00 works great! If you have a funnel with a taper on the neck that opens the crimp up ,that will work too. I have a $2.00 set from WalMart that I keep on the bench.

I have the 12ga MEC sitting right next to the 16 . Just push the cases up on the 12ga plunger(primer seater) and spin a bit - loosens the RGL's up . The tight is the feature of the RGL that is unique and helpful some . The RGL's seem to cushion the shot blow some being thicker . Too bad the plastic isn't a bit better qual . The thick is why a lot of us use 20ga wads effectively .

Crispy crimps. I like that. Laughing BTW, whatever happened to Krispy Kreme donuts? They were everywhere a while back, but they've sort of disappeared. Just another media mad fad gone south I guess.

I know, there's no correlation but the question just popped into my noggin. Very Happy
