By "squaring " your dies, what you need to do .if you havent already, is to loosen the lock nut on your dies and put a case in your press. Run your ram up until the die is in on the case and then lock your lock nut.

Do this with a loaded bullet that is known to be concentric with your seating die also.

If this is not done, there is enough clearance built in to the male /female threads to push all of the clearance to one side, thus making your bullets less than concentric.

This is called" squaring"the die. IF it is not done, it will make a difference and I have seen this important step ommited by begginnig and novice reloaders. This is the first step to reloading accurate ammo that looks good and functions without fail.
