Have you tried the Redding Competition seater? I would try and figure out what's going on with your current die. Has it always been like that or did you change something and start noticing the inconsistent seating depths?

If you send 5 bullets to rcbs along with some money (I think it's around 30.00) they make a custom bushings for your seating die to match your bullets ogive.

Then all you have to do is swap out the bushings inside the die

Are you measuring off the ogive? I have RCBS Comp dies and they do the job perfect.

If you're using VLD bullets you may need a different seater stem.

Or, just buy a Redding Competition seater

the only thing i have changed is from sierra to berger. i have used rcbs full lenght, neck sizer and searing die for thousands of loads with very little if any movement in depth at the most 2thousanths. and thats if i get in a hurry . im leaning towards the redding die based on info recieved from berger technicians that you can but a vld seating stem. berger recommends them over all else but i figuerd the best info were from the guys that use them.
