take your decapping pin out of the stem and put the stem and expander button back in the die. That way the neck tension will be correct.
As to pulled powder, it is perfectly re-usable if the reloads were well marked. At 25$ a pound, it is a waste to dump it. If you are using a collet puller, the bullet is re-usable too. You can't pull lead bullets with a collet puller so keep that in mind. I use an rcbs collet puller here, and while it costs a few dollars to start with, you save a bunch in recovered components.
