I had an ammo load stepped 9mm case somehow get by and into the machine, the powder check found it.

I wired into this particular PC die as it is an input for the PLC that normally runs this machine but it is otherwise as it came from Dillon.

That's cool it was able to detect that difference.

I didn't realize you can use PLCs for reloading, I only know of them from conveyor systems.

It's just a control system, the same thing could be done with a few different style relays, except for the display.

This is how it works.

I haven't had any issues loading the stepped cases for minor.

Because of the step, they have a smaller internal case capacity, which means that the same amount of powder as your regular charge will increase pressures.

Unless you have enough of them to warrant developing a load specifically for them, or unless your use mousefart loads (in which case your POI will still be different, but they'd work for blasting ammo), they should be scrapped.
