Yes, don't push hard at the end of the cut. Make a few turns after the collar stops feeding but not with high pressure. The set screws and collars can slip if you push too hard. Make sure your pilot isn't tight in the case mouth. Shouldn't be loose but shouldn't have any binding. Lube the shaft and collar where it bottoms out. Light gun grease works well on mine. If your pilot is snug chuck it in a drill and sandpaper it until it slides easy into case necks. I like my Lyman Universal but it has some issues for me. Don't like the fiber bearing and especially don't like the collar bottoming out on the aluminum bearing housing. Love the chuck and the cutter is sharp and cuts well. I still can't get as accurate a length as I can on my Forster trimmer.
