...I got new dies and this lot are really hard to chamber
Not me happily but the handiwork of one of our club members.Is this new brass you're using or is it brass that been fired a time or two. The round on the right, is that the result of trying to chamber it? There are a couple of things you may not be doing right so best to get the basic questions out of the way first.

I know what he has done now.
Had a bog standard seater die and result is on left. They are fine.
His new uber die set has a seater die of the type that can be set to variably crimp or not crimp at all.
They need to be adjusted so that the crimpy bit does its stuff in right place.
He had treated it like his old seater die and allowed shell holder to contact die.
Cartridge went way too far up. Overall length is fine but crimper rammed neck and shoulder significantly backwards in process.
Not a happy bunny.
They are black nosler silver tips ballisticWhat are the blue ones?
