Problem with Lee Press

Hi guys, I'm looking for some advise. I have run thousands of 380's through my 3 hole lee press. During that time I never had to adjust anything on the machine. It came setup for the 380's and worked like a well oiled machine should. Now I have switched over to 38's (I got 3 new dies from Lee) and I can't get it right. It sticks up in the loader/spreader die and I have to put enough force to push the handle down that I am concerned about breaking it. I only want to spread it a tiny bit so that I can start the bullet in.
On to another thing, I'm using the TL 358-148 WC mold. Can I use it for 357's too so that I don't need to run any 38's, just 357's? I just seems foolish to make 2 different bullets for the same gun. If I need to I'll get a new mold.
