    Too much lube in your die, I think. Either use less lube per case or take out the die every 4-5 cycles and clean it out. That's been my experience at least with some larger cases.

    Shoot 'em once like that and the dents will pop right back out.

    I can tell from your picture that youre using a spray lube.

    Try the Imperial sizing wax. You will eliminate this problem.

    Take your die apart and clean it with a degreaser. Also your die will have an air escape hole/ pressure relief hole some where close to the shoulder of the case. Make sure it is not clogged. Third, when you tighten down the lock ring try not to cover the little hole with the lock ring.
