Midway Bullets

I just bought Midway 55 gr bullets for my 223. After running them thru the press it is leaving a small bulge at the neck. This is the first time I have had this happen,I have never used Midway bullets before. Any suggestions. I don't have any other bullets right now to try.

are you crimping? Might be to tight, what kind of seating die? might try to back the die off one turn and then move the seat stem down to seat to the depth you want.

A close up picture would help immensely.

Have you checked the diameter of the bullets?
Is it possible they are entering the case crooked due to your seater plug?

Definitely want to know what press and die.

I've loaded the Midways before and I've never encountered your issue.
