Lee dies and presses are great when on a tight budget, but you always get what you pay for.

Seen that same theme over and over again on the reloading forum. I load for over 10 calibers rifle and pistol, have nothing but Lee dies and this is the first issue I have had with them. they may be "budget" dies, but I have made over 100,000 rds. through them without an issue until this brass. My 2 cents, I blame the brass not the depriming pin. Was just giving an alert to people who might use those to watch out for Norma brass.
