Hey everyone,

Question about the adapters for the RMS systems. I know the 600nm case has a different forward seal disk but can you use one or two spacers and drop it down to the lower case that does not have the disk?

Interesting question... Couldn't you just use the seal disk on the smaller reload anyway?

The seal disk depends on the load, not the case size. Most (if not all) of the longer 38mm loads do tend to call for the seal disk, so it gets included with the longer complete motors (but if you just buy the case alone you might need to buy it separately). But if the motor instructions say it needs a seal disk that's regardless of the case size or spacers involved, and similarly if the instructions don't require a seal disk then you don't use one even when using the RAS spacers in a longer case.
