The "show me your best crimps" thread got me thinking to ask you guys about this problem. My problem is that my MEC Steelmaster 3 1/2" reloader gives me odd looking crimps. When I look at a finished shell, the cam crimp punch impression on the top of the shell is off-center just enough to mess with the quality of the crimp. I replaced the punch thinking that it was bent but that wasn't the problem. I also believe that it isn't an issue that can be resolved by raising or lowering the cam and/or punch, because I have adjusted both and it still does the same thing wherever the two are set. BTW, I have already contacted MEC many times and I think the customer service guy is getting mad at me. :mrgreen: It didn't always have that problem, it somehow got messed up one day. Any thoughts???

Send the unit back with a reloaded shell with the bad crimp and
ask them to fix the problem.
Send it "certified" in case they say they never got it.
This would be your last resort..............
