Re: OCW load development need advice for a newbie

I've had this happen to me as well and I just bring mine to my smith/machine shop and he turns a few .001's off of the bottom of the die and it works perfectly.
You could also get a shellholder that is not quite as thick so that it will allow the case into the die a bit more.

The rim could be grinding off a bit because of the tight fit, or possibly your ejector is not retracting all the way and it putting pressure on the case head.
