Oh.. I just remembered.. There can be an "alignment issue" with your press, too...

I found info on this with the lee turret - I was banging the lip too damned often at flare and fiddling case alignment all the time.. Turned out the solution is to loosen the nuts on the support legs a little, run the case up the die and wiggle the turret a bit.. They can get marginally out of vertical alignment and this will let you realign. Lock down the nuts and make sure your depths are still correct.

This occured to me this summer and I've not had a "bang-over" since then.
