9mm Question

I recently starting casting for 9mm. I'm using a lee 120gr .356 tc mould. The bullets are dropping at about .357 and when I reload them some lead gets shaved off the bullet as it is being seated. I have already flared the case mouth a good amount so my question is should I flare them more or is it ok that some lead is being shaved off?
