Hey guys.  Im having trouble getting 480 brass to load in my Lyman Universal Trimmer's chuck.  I've backed the shaft out of the chuck as far as I dare.  The brass just doesn't want to fit in.  If I press the detent ball in with something while inserting it it will go but I sure dont want to do that every time.  44 mag brass will pop in as will 308.  Anyone else have this issue?  Solutuons?

I had a problem with Hornady Brass not going in my RCBS Shell Holder. I reworked some of it, then sent it back to Hornady. They sent it back with a Hornady shell holder which worked better. The Hornady must not have been the exact same dimension as the Starline which fit in my RCBS shell holder just fine.

Man Bob it's been so long since I reloaded for this that I forgot there was an issue with rim thickness on the Hornady. I think you posted something on this long ago right? All my brass is Hornady but my shellholders are Lee & no problems there and I wasn't trimming at the time so I never ran into a problem!
My longest cases are only .002 over trim length so I think I will be fine for this go around & will get a Lee case length gauge to use with my Lee trimmer.
Thank you sir!
