Die Setup Error

I set up my RCBS 223 die incorrectly and didn’t catch the mistake until after bullet seating. Here’s what happened:

I primarily reload pistol ammo and recently purchased a Sig M400 so I decided to try some reloading of the factory 223 brass that I fired. I misread the RCBS instructions for the full-length sizing die. Not exactly sure why but I screwed the die in until it was about 1/8 of an inch from the shell holder with the ram at the top of the stroke. The instructions actually say to screw the die in until it touches the shell holder with the ram at the top and then lower the ram and adjust the die 1/8 to ¼ further down so the press cams over center.

Now I have 50 rounds loaded that have been incorrectly sized. What are my options?
