    I just purchased a manual trim pro case trimmer and redding dies for my new 300 wsm and winchester brass I neck sized a few of the new cases not fired yet.I have the 3 way cutter head,I notice when I put the case in the holder it does not line up with the pilot,have any of you guys noticed this problem?
    thanks Wayne

    haven't had this happen... are you using the correct shell holder?

    I was checking it with new brass, when I switched to neck sized brass every thing was ok.The shell plate has RCBS stamped on it and the stamp was really close to the mounting hole and it seemed tight there so I oil stone lapped the side of the side of the shell holder with the RCBS stamp.You could see the raised metal as soon as I started the lap,it fits ok now and and the three way cutter head is worth the extra money,I measured overall length and they are all .0005 to .001.My trade is machinist so I tend to be a little picky about my reloading.
