I set up my 338 win mag die just like my 30-06 die and I am having issues with the bullet seating die putting a scoring ring around my Nosler 225 gr Accubond bullets. It did this with the seated adjustment screw backed completely out. I called Hornady and Doug said he doesn't know what might be causing this. He said they make custom bullet seating stems. I think it is the alignment sleeve doing this. Also whe I push my handle forward to remove my round you feel it catching on something like the retainer pin.
should I back the die out 3-4 turns and try it that way again? I will try again tonight with some hornady 225 gr SST bullets.
