    Hey guys, just finished setting up my 550b, or so I thought.

    Dies and everything are fine and I can complete a round if I insert each primer on it's own. But primers will not feed on their own out of the tube.

    When I first pulled the cotter pin and the primers went down the shoot I started a new piece of brass in, it deprimed and resized correctly but a new primer was not placed on the primer cup.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance

    Did you index the primer plate? It takes about seven pulls before a primer shows up

    Did you rotate the primer magazine until it dropped down to correct location? That one got me at first.

    Yeah I got it going then, I may be the biggest idiot on here.

    I took out the guide rod at some unknown point and never put it back, they were just in the black tube piled up. I pulled the whole assembly off dumped them checked it put it back together and realized I forgot the guide before. About craped my pants for a second.

    Thanks for the help anyways
