Re: more .223 rem qiestions?
The generic way is to raise the ram, screw the die into the press until it touches the shell holder, lower the ram and screw the die in 1/4 turn more.
No...At most there should just be contact with shell holder and die adding this addition 1/4 turn will be too much shoulder setback, and unecessary strain on your die and press. My .223 setup achieves correct headspace with a few thousands gap between shellholder and die...same goes with .308.
