I just started loading for 30-30 in a TC contender using RCBS 30-30 dies and a rock chucker press. I've reloaded for many years and this is the first caliber I've seen this on. After sizing the brass I try to seat a 150 grain Nossler ballistic tip and it consistently sticks in the seater and is pulled back out of the brass. I have to remove the seater from the die to get the bullet loose. I read on the RCBS site that they make the seaters to an angle that should work for most bullets in the caliber range being used but I wonder if the 30-30 dies have a seater meant for softnosed bullets used in the lever guns and it wont work on the ballistic tip bullets. If I got a seater from say a set of 308 or 30-06 dies might that work better or are the RCBS seaters all the same for a particular caliber?
