The Lee shellholders are notorious for being "loose", meaning they don't hold the case snugly. When you go to use the expander, make sure the case is pushed all the way in. Don't have that problem with Lyman, RCBS, or Hornady shellholders as they are made for each caliber. For example, the Lee #19 "fits" 9mm, 38 Super, 40S&W, 10mm even though the cases are not the same dimension.
