338 Rum with 300 berger seating issues

I have a redding seating die and when seating the 300 gr berger in my 338 rum, with the adjuster screwed all the way down, the bullet oal just barely fits in the magazine. Is there something I need to buy to be able to seat the bullet a little deeper? This die seats all of my other bullets just fine.

    I ran into the same issue with my 6.5WSM. This might help you out.
