Lee resizing die question.

Spiffy Starr, SASS #28337

Recommended Posts

Following the directions for using the dies, my Lee 38/387 resizing die cuts a ring around the brass, about an eighth inch or so above the base.   I'm using this in a Lee Turret press.   I don't have that problem when using my Dillon Dies, but I hate having to pull it out of the Dillon shell holder for the rare times I want to experiment in the Lee press.

Is there something I'm doing wrong?

The 38 Lee resizing die I have squeezes the brass a little bit more then everyone else’s dies especially down close to the base which is why I use their resize die, if you set a Lee resize die down to far it is very likely to cause a ring down close to the base of the cartridge. when a RCBS, Dillon or Lyman die is set to the same height you probably won’t see a ring. Try backing your resize die off a half turn and see if that helps
