Why choose F.W. Arms™ shell plates
You want an F.W. Arms™ shell plate for the same reason you want(ed) our decapper, it helps lower the potential for problems. We have found that the #1 issue for decapper pin failure is a jumped case that ends up positioning the case head right under the pin. Cases jump for a number of reasons but the problem always gets worse at the high speeds that auto-drives since the case is moving faster and it becomes a bit more difficult to locate the case flange into the plate. Each case station has had the geometry optimized for high speed case feeding but also to allow minimal wiggle of the case once it’s in place. Keep in mind we need to cut the pockets to just over saami spec to cover all cases. Cases on the small end of the saami tolerance will wiggle more.
Plates will be laser engraved with the shell plate number.
We’ve also added numbers to each of the case stations because I’ve always felt that the case stations needed numbers to help keep track of.
