I don't remember what brand of die the OP was using, and it's not important. A Forster die has the sizing ball setup much higher on the stem than say an RCBS. In theory the case body is contained in the die before the sizing ball goes thru the neck (I know better). I use these dies as well as others, and cannot see any serious difference in pressure as the case leaves the die body when properly lubed.
