Using pistol casefeed cam for .223?

This is my first progressive press, still have lots to learn. I ordered the 750 setup for 223, and it came with the casefeed cam set in the "pistol" orientation. It feeds 223 beautifully. I also see youtubers using it this way. But on the rifle configuration, the cam does not feed cases properly at all.

I think I've read mostly through the entire manual, I've seen videos from Dillon in the troubleshooting section for setting up the cam. Not a single note on exceptions or anything like that. It's always R for rifle, P for pistol. Maybe I missed something.

I'm happy with how it's feeding, but I always want to know things are right and why, and not leave them wrong and tentatively working, just lying in wait to cause to other issues down the line.

Good eye, mate! I'm thinking that of course there would be a grey area where the two "settings" would overlap and either would work. Otherwise, there would be a black area where neither would work!
