90% there. I’ve started using some case lube and that helps a bunch. Now all I need is to polish the powder through die.

I’m a case lube convert and will use it from now on even with my carbide dies.

Tried all the add-on enhancements...new balls...springs..whatever. Still have a chronic powder spill in my 9MM system. The plate jerks into and outta place and the powder gets tossed. I've slowed waay down and even put my fingers on the cases as they go into to the seater after the powder charge...and that's the only way to keep it from spilling on each "click" into place. Yep...tried new springs, cutting off loops of old OEM ones, and adjusting the shell plate bolt. Still jerks enough to spill poweder so I have to slow don and manually keep the powdered shells from jerking on the rotation and tossing powder.
My other calibers work much better.

I tumbled well. Pretty clean cases though not new or wet cleaned. Clean shell holder and below. I’ll check again on the indexer and it seems there is no issue with a case going into station one. I did find that the CBC headstamp brass is a pain but Blazer (my preferred), Win, R-P all seem to be fine.

I am pretty picky about my 9mm brass. There seems to be a huge swing in specs. So I avoid foreign brass as much as possible, pmc seems ok though.

Have you have consulted the Instruction manual? I'm not meaning anything by it, but there are 6 Major headings and multiple fixes for each heading all related to Powder charging/case mouth belling. It would be a much more efficient way to troubleshoot your problem. JMO

No worries, no offense taken. I’ve had several people comment on how I’m one of the few they’ve seen that reads before assembling stuff. I did consult the manual, assembled by he book and adjusted. Just wasn’t quite as smooth as I thought it should be and sometimes reading instructions or tips presented in a different way helps me.

Call Dillon Tech Support. They will work with you describing the problem. They will give you tips on solving the problem, and if they think you need any new parts, they will send them to you gratis. Some parts have supplemental instructions, and they have some kits to help you adjust the parts to proper working order, each with its own set of instructions.
 
Since it is a new press, they may even send you a prepaid shipping label to return it to them. I am close enough to be able take my press to them personally, which I have done a couple of times in the 15 years I've owned it. They always replace (some expensive) parts that I didn't even know might be part of the problem. The invoice total is always $0.00, and the press has been set up in perfect working condition, indexing properly, no jerks, etc.
