Re: first time reloading anything (30 cal carbine)
I've been looking at an old Lee Loader set, and I don't understand why your OAL is changing. I guess it would be possible to have excessive OAL if you didn't tap the seating rod/priming unit down fully..... but if you set the seating rod for an OAL of 1.68, I don't understand how you could ever get LESS than 1.68.
Are you sure that you got the seating rod screwed the correct distance into the priming unit? On my Lee Loader, there's about 0.6 inches' worth of adjustment here...And the round knurled locknut is tight against your priming unit, so the adjustment doesn't change?
