    I am trying to size 6mm brass, but most of the brass comes out of the die with a dimple in the shoulder. Thanks in advance for your help

    Could be something in the die or, could be too much lube on the shoulders.

    It's 99.99% certain you are loading too much lube on the neck & shoulder. Part of the learning curve. Next you will fail to lube the lower case properly and get a stuck case.

    Concur with above replies. Try Redding Imperial Sizing Die Wax. Much easier to apply and no globs to worry about. I almost use nothing else these days.
