Default Sizing problem in XL650

I have a XL650 dillon and I am loading 40 cal. I have the sizing die set according to the book, there really is no adjustment, just screw the die down till it touches the shell plate, I have ran 58 brass hulls though station one, only 14 have sized, I get one here and there that will size . i have ran that sizing die down to the last thread on the Top, still can't get the brass to size. I am also using new dillon dies. any suggestions would be appreciated.

Is the die punching out the primer every time? What manufacturer made the dies? Dillon presses are thicker than most and dies must be screwed in beyond what you may think proper.

Remember, Dillon has a warranty.
Contact them as there may have been some change since you purchased the machine.

these are dillon dies, everything works well except the sizing, can't seem to get the whole shell sized, it stops at about a 1/8 to 1/4 inch from the headstamp, you are only suspose to bring the die down to where it touches the shell plate with the handle in the down stoke full stop. I understand you may have to turn it down somemore, but I took all the other dies out so I could see what was going on and had that die screwed all the way down to its last thread and its still not sizing the whole shell and I tryed like 30-40 shells individually, I would get one to size and then the next 7 or 8 would'nt. I am at a lost at this point, waiting for a little advice first then I will call dillon.

WOOO HOLD UP.....

If you had your die touching the shell plate you could have broken the carbide ring. Make sure it is still there first off. NEVER EVER EVER Let the carbide sizing ring on pistol dies touch the shell plate or shell holder. While carbide is strong and slick it is brittle.

I have found the problem, The new Lyman case gage I bought is a defect, I can't hardly believe that but it is true, only in my world.......
