Seating die a bit off?

Perfect first attempt of setting up my seating die right?

The one on the right is a factory round in case you were not sure.

No dummy rounds were hurt in this process.

Been there, done that.

Here's one for you. Every so often I forget to swap out my dies and try to seat with a flaring die. Bullet gets stuck in the die and the cursing commences.

I like expanding in the seating die. Accordian.

So what's the problem? Are we actually supposed to be able to see that tiny dark picture?
The more people I meet, the more I love my dog

They're going to get their butts kicked over there this election. How come people can't spell and use words correctly?

If you trimmed the brass it might make a good .380 round.
