Such is life.
I guess so... I just find it funny that American brands Never fit, but European ones Always fit

Solved my problem!!
Just got a Lee factory crimp die, removed the crimp part and resized the 9mm's that dont fit... They all work now!!!

I still dont see why some 9mm are "bigger" than others...
