It's not a major issue, but one which is a little annoying and time consuming.....
I use a redding seating die (and redding press) for reloading .308win.
i have used the same die and press for a while now and reloaded probably a couple of hundred rounds with no issues.
Until recently I was reloading hornady interlock 150grn bullets and had no issues at all. I have now started loading 168 nosler ballistic silver tips.
the issue I am experiencing with the BST bullets is, I push the bullet into the case as normal but when I raise the lever the bullet seems to stick just slightly in the die. Not so much that I can't easily raise the lever.
if I then measure the coal of the assembled round it will be up to 5 thou over length. If I then replace the round in the press and press it with the seater die a couple of time it will seat the bullet deeper (usually to my desired coal or very close to).
is it an incompatibility between the shape of the seater die and these particular bullets?
