    I have a competition seater in a 308. I am using 165 SST's and I can't get them to seat to 2.8 OAL. I am about at 2.93 OAL /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif What happens is that the press bottoms out on the die and the adjustment on the die is all the way down towards the press.

    It may be that you have the zero adjustment in the full up position. Try adjusting the hex screw to see if you can more depth. Then if you can't and you are sure you should be able to return the die to Redding to have the stem replaced with the correct size.
