I don't know what the fuck just happened.

I set a case, and a bullet, pulled the lever and my boat shoes are now a HazMat site

The case going into the powder dump is smashed like when you have your seat die too low for the length of bullet you are seating. But in this case it was the powder dump that smashed it.

Is there a spring that goes on the back behind the hopper? It looks like there should be one there, but I have a stud on the powder arm, and a hole on the frame. No spring is in between.

Does this make sense, the words that I am typing? Ahhhhhhhh!

do you have the powder return failsafe rod & spring that forces the bar closed upon the upstroke?

My RCBS doesn't do that. Make sure you check every round you loaded in that batch if it was vomiting powder everywhere. Or did it just vomit a single load's worth of powder?

Everything was normal until, drastically it was not.

I think the return spring and it's attachment point left for parts unknown, without permission.

Rise the powder measure die up. Sometimes it helps if you tighten down the shell holder a bit. Sometimes if the mouth of the case will catch on the inside of the powder drop and drop powder all over the place. If you tighten up the shell holder and make sure the case lines up with the center of the powder measure station.

So the powder dump smashed the case like the angry fist of god? I've had a shotgun press do that and a load of #6 all over the floor is fun. I never knew 1 ounce of shot covered so large an area.
