I'm stumped. I've reloaded about 150 rounds of 45 acp with no problems. The other day I took my turret out to test fit my new ones that just came in and then replaced the turret with the dies. A day later I sat down to reload and the first bullet I seated was pushed down much to far. I had to remove the die and do a complete re-setup to get it to work. Is there a reason why the die didn't work after? I got the other Turrets (I'm using the wrong term here) so that I could just leave my dies set up. Is this a normal problem when moving dies? I can't for the life of me figure out how or why it moved. :|

No, it is not normal, that is the reason to buy the extra tool heads, so you don't have to constantly adjust the dies, and screw them in and out. What kind of dies are you using? Are you completely sure you did not accidentally touch the die while it was out of the turret?

It's a Lee 4 die set. I may have messed it up, but it shouldn't move once locked in place. :|

can't figure it, never had that problem. thats the reason to get xtra turrets is to leave the dies in one set so you don't have to fool with them.
perhaps an outside source of interference as in someone else in the house or company came by and jacked with it?

Years back my daughters seemed to be drawn to my reloading set-up like a magnet and i could tell when something was out of place. Been any little fingers over visitin' lately? Or the wife cleaning and straitin' up?

or perhaps when you removed the die/turret set-up and then re-installed, dig you handle that die during the process and it somehow got backed in/out while changing turrets?

either way, it sounds more like a human factor.

That's the only thing I can think it could be. I'll be more aware next time. I didn't know if it was something that might be common when moving them. I don't have enough experience to know what should and shouldn't be expected. :)

Deadeye, that's just an urban legend, and you know it.....everyone knows you're supposed to spraypaint the shiny side flat black before you put on the tin foil..... :twisted:
