    RCBS provided an aluminum follower plug with my piggyback 2 primer tubes. It locks the shell holder when the primers run out and adds a littl weight to keep them moving. Might contact their Customer Service and see if they will send you one.

About Minerat
I have been reloading since 1970 when I started with shotgun while in HS. Have an civil engineeering degree and own my own company doing mining consulting work for clay, quarry stone and sand and gravel mines in Colorado. I have done this for 37 years. Just started casting this month (May 2014). I shoot both rifle and pistol and fish and elk hunt.
