Setting up swage operation on RL1050

Is there an easy way to know that you have the primer swager set up properly or a certain set of steps that you should follow in setting it up.(something like raising the ram and then screwing the rod down until you feel the resistance of the case or something like that)

I took a RL1050 apart and cleaned it after it had not been used for many years and I'm not the original owner.

I read the owners manual and don't see a way to know that you have it set up properly or even a set of steps to follow in setting it up.

It is working but I feel some resistance with the press handle all the way down and I want to know that I'm not crushing the web of the case too much or anything like that.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Setting up swage operation on RL1050

One other consideration many brass have a flash hole burr. On the Dillon Super Swage 600 a burr can prevent the brass from going into the position so it can be swaged. So on the Super 1050 if you set your swage station with a case that has no flash hole burr then when you get a case with a flash hole burr that can be the reason some cases seems like the handle pressure is greater.
