Your vise is canted, it'll never be accurate!
Believe it or not, that's a pivot pin detent pin loss prevention tactic. I didn't bother adjusting after I was done. I have found that shooting the the detent pins slightly downward, at about that angle and azimuth, usually results in the pin bouncing off the wall and coming to rest on a small piece of carpet under my reloading bench.
Any other angle, and it's a visit to the parts box, 'cause that sucker's gone.
But, no pins were fired across the room today!

I really need to just make a danged pivot pin installation/removal tool. I have the round stock for it. All it needs is a hole, a chamfer, and trim to length.
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.
