    But what are you adjusting with the paperclip? Sorry if I sound like a complete idiot with these questions, but in the past I have never had to adjust anything except the pin at the bottom that punches out the spent primer.

    Do NOT leave paper clip in place while sizing! Just use as reference point.

    A reference for what? That's the part I am foggy on. Ok, so I have my die in my press. I Put the ram in the full upright position, I adjust the screw on top to get the pin sufficiently through the flash hole to punch out the old primer. Now, what do I adjust after that?
