My biggest problem that causes damaged case mouths is getting in too big of a hurry. I get a rhythm down and things work smoothly. If I start trying to run a bit faster, I start to fail to seat he case all the way into the shell holder. At first the case will self-align, but if I keep going a bit faster the case mouth will get damaged. In my case it is operator error not an equipment error.

Bad Expander 100% issue solved 👌
KR45P13, do you still have the "faulty" expander, or did you send it in? I'd love to see some clear close-up photographs of the tip of that expander. Misshaped, burr, or rough finish. Glad you got the problem ironed out regardless.
