Okay guys, I've gotten three different calibers of redding competition bullet seating dies, and they all do the same thing. I've never had this happen before, but I can't seat the die down where you normally would, or else they squish my casings, or the bullet would get stuck so bad I had to pull it out with a pair of pliers. Called my military buddy in who's been reloading for a very long time, said he's never seen anything like it. He ended up putting my dies all the way up like this, and I had to work it down to where it seated the bullets to the right length. I've never had an issue with redding dies in the past, and I've used lots. I tried using different bullets, put imperial wax on the casing and in the die. No luck. Anybody else encountered this issue? Everyone I've talked to and shown has said redding has slipped in quality in the past year, so I don't know. I'm about to switch all my seating dies to Forster. Would sell the seating dies I have, but don't want anyone else to have this issue.
