Ok, I'll give it a try.

Re: Setting up dies

I bought lee dies and they didn't work. Then I bought rcbs dies thinking they would be better. .. and they weren't right either. So I ordered hornady dies... and they are perfect. the lee dies were wrong in the diameter of the case, and the rcbs dies were wrong on the shoulder... I tried everything...

Re: Setting up dies

That's the way I had it set up. I tried to loading a few into my FiveseveN, if I load them into the magazine with only 1 single round, it will load it, but I can feel the slide cover is still open by maybe 1mm, it's not flush like when it is empty or loaded with factory SS197.

I am having the same problem with my Lee dies, it gets stuck in the go/no go gauge just the same. I already tried adjusting the die, doesn't make a difference. So what now? Throw these in the trash like everyone else says or am I doing something wrong?
