    One of mine lasted two weeks.......had everything to do with dropping it on the floor and stepping on it......so don't step on it and don't drink while reloading as calgarysparky pointed out. I've seen no wear from feeding bullets ......

    I tried a 3D printed shell holder, once........not a good place for plastic......ripped a case right though it, first try, sizing .9 mm. Doh! Saw that on Thingiverse.....don't believe everything you see on Thingiverse.

Don't feel like dropping 1k on a rollsizer so busting prior to loading should help. I'm a competition shooter so I'm very picky about my ammo, lol
    me too I rollsize! some 9mm bulges but 40 is just a giant pain

    Dear Team
    I am looking for Spring_Drop_Tube_11 but in the repo I can “only” find Small, Medium, Large and Extra large.
    What size should I use for 223 Rem and 9x19 ?

    Look Here about 20 rows up. Use the #11 spring adapters. I think that is what you are referring to. If you are going on top of a feed die you will also need the medium or large you were looking at.

    Dear team !
    Just me that experience differences with the tolerances based on the filament ?
    PLA Plus gives close to perfect fit almost all the time, PLA Meta and some sanding is required.
    With both filaments the prints come out really nice. Calibrated Creality Ender-3 S1 Pro.
    Best regards
    Roger

    I've never used PLA Meta, is Meta a brand? I've found the biggest improvement fit-wise for me, was reducing layer height from the normal .2 to .12, when I want to print small parts that have to fit to each other.

    OK all, this thing is sweet, i have an issue that is minimal. Why does my collator openscad not look like the instructions? I like how simple the interface is on the PDF vs what mine looks like...

    There is an interface in the java Parts Generator. That is what you see in the manual. If you are opening the generator directly in openscad it is all code. There are so many parameters in it now to handle all the different plates it can be intimidating, but it is well documented and there are a lot of code examples at the bottom.

    Thanks GWS,
    PLA Meta is from JAYO.
    The parts that i need to sand are printed in .12.
    Examples of where I have a poor fit is Spring_Drop_Tube_X on top of feed dies, and APP_X_Insert_X inside APP_Bracket_Main.
    Perhaps just something with my setup and/or the filament.
