XL 650 / 9MM / DILLON SIZING DIE

Should the Dillon 9mm sizing die actually touch the shell plate? Should it be turned down past just touching since the shell plate "floats"?

The shell plate should be tight enough to not rock when pressing on the plate at station 4 with the platform in the down position. Once you have that set then I bring then bring the platform to the full up position and being the sizing die down to just touch the shell plate but not tight against it.

Thanks for the reply.

It's good to know that touching the shell plate is ok. Most people say you should back it off a bit but the die instructions indicated touching the shell plate, that's why I was confused.
