Bullet seating problem with 22-250

I am wondering if this is a common problem with new brass or something else.
Reloading for Rem. 788 in 22-250 using new Winchester brass. New brass has been resized and trimmed.
Most, but not all, of the bullets seated have very light neck tension. So light that dropping the finished round into the shell box (base first) will cause the bullet to slide into the case. I am using a very light crimp at this time.
Bullets are the .224 V-Max and the .224 Speer. New Lee dies. Seated to COL of 2.345
Could I have a resizing die with a oversize expander ball?
