Lyman primer pocket uniformer question

I stopped by the "candy store" and picked up a couple of Lyman Primer Pocket Uniformer tools (large and small).
Instructions say to cut until you hit the stop collar on the tool.
Has anyone had any experience with the stop collar moving with use?
Wouldn't want to "reach China", so to speak.

I've used them (large/small rifle) for ten years w/o ever having a collar move.

I had a collar move today on my small Lyman uniformer. A 22 Hornet case got stuck on it and I had to pry it off after wiggling it failed. Once it broke free it moved rather easily. I plan to email Lyman for replacement but also intend to ask for recommendation of the depth and if thread locker can be used to secure it. I would rather have a sturdier tool though.
