Got a problem and I just dont understand it. Loaded 50 rounds that wont allow me to close the bolt. I thought it was bullet seating depth for a start and that something had changed or moved I am using RCBS full length sizing die and bullet seating dies by RCBS to. I have set it up exactly the same as my others, 222 ,243 , 9.3x62. Take the handle to the bottom ( lee press ) screw the die in until it just touches the collett and all the rest. Thought I should try to find out where the problem was so i started from scratch with an empty case ,lube FL resize and the case trimmed to the correct length,Then, placing the trimmed case in the breach,I cant push the bolt forward on the rifle fully to close it in the breach, I then turned the die in a little at a time and the empty case then fitted but tight, another little turn and the case fits the chamber well. I then seated the bullet head in the normal way without touching the seating depth and again all is well and the overall length is as it should be.
My concern is that the FL die is now not set up as it should be according to the set up instructions but works as afr as I can see. Is this normal or am I missing something obviouse. Is it safe to leave the die set up in this way or is the die the problem?
Your thoughts would be greatly received
