RCBS small base 300 blk

I have been loading my 300 blk on a chucker for years. I’m using the rcbs small base dies which requires me to set the die at the shell plate. In order to set the die to the proper location to form the brass correctly on my new 550, I have no threads showing to lock the die in place with the lock ring. What am I missing here? I have not read any other complaints about this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If I’m missing something simple, take it easy on me.

Thanks

Is there room/threads to put the lock ring on the underside?

RE: RCBS small base 300 blk

Thanks for the reply. When I put the lock ring on the bottom it collides with the index star. My thoughts are to drill and tap the tool head and install an allen screw to secure the die. I just don’t understand how I’m the only person with this problem.
