RCBS 9 mm carbide dies in Dillon 550c press.

Trying to get a OAL under 1.130, and seat the bullet without flattening the the round tip. The dies I purchased were used so I don't know if the Seater plug insert is right for round nose bullets.

Could it be for Flat Nose or Hollow Points?

I'm using mixed brass, and Berry's 124 RN which are .356 in diameter.

Not sure on the RCBS dies but,the Dillon dies seater plug can be flipped over for a different shape bullets. 

 

Thanks, just checked Dillon web site and I see what your saying. Checked RCBS also. They don't say it specifically, but mention another seater plug could be needed. I'll call them on Monday.

Generally RCBS includes a round nose and a flat seating plug with their dies. Don’t know if that’s changed lately. 

Correct. I use 9mm RCBS dies on my 650XL, because I already owned them when I bought my 650. The dies came with both RN and flat nosed plugs.

Called RCBS Monday, their representative sent me RN plug free of charge. Received it Friday!

That's great customer service!

Yep, they're great. Owned an RCBS progressive for probably close to 30 years. I've not needed many parts for it over the years, but they were all free.
