when you load by the ogive do you have to reset your dies every round?

last night I was setting my rounds by the ogive 300 win mag with 230 bergers
and it seemed as once I got it dialed in and set then next would be off and would have to re set the die. is this normal?

I have never run into the problem you describe. I always load to the ogive and primarily use Sierra bullets and Lee dies. You might want to measure your bullets and see if the ogive varies from bullet to bullet. There could also be an issue with your die. I am not sure what to tell you on this one.

You might being the 230 is pretty long. If the bullets are consistent, which bergers usually are, it could be your variable.

Yeah that's one version. They used to offer one for the regular die as well just swap it out.
