Lee FCD too long?

Recommended Posts

Having an issue with my Lee FCD. It is screwed down as far as it can go, touching the shell plate, but still to high to engage the crimp collet. I have used it for years in single stage press, so I don't think anything is wrong with the die. Not much to the die to go wrong. The collet spins free inside the body. Running the .223 FCD on XL650. Brass trimmed to 1.755", COAL 2.240". Using name brand 55gr BTHP. This is the first time set-up for .223 so maybe this die just isn't going to work on this press. Anyone else have this issue? Really don't want to grind the die body collet. Does the Redding comp crimp die work better? Dillon crimp die? Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
