Bowl Assembly
There are two “wipes” in the bowl assembly. These are
designed to prevent a double stack of bullets.
With the power disconnected, rotate the Sorting Plate
until one of the grooves is in line with the first “wipe”.
Place a bullet into the groove, loosen the lock nut and
adjust the “wipe” in or out until it clears the bullet by 1/8”-
1/4”, tighten the locknut.
Move the bullet up one groove and adjust the “spring
wipe” by loosening the two locknuts and positioning the
spring to clear the bullet nose by ~1/8”.
