I was wondering if anyone else saw the problem with speer cases. It seems to happen almost exclusively with them. I have so many of them though, I'd hate to pull them.

Oh and my worry about a squib is due to the fact that the spent primer being it there COULD be the result of not completing a full stroke. If it didn't go far enough to deprime, then the other case maybe didn't go far enough to get charged. I know it isn't likely I did that, as I'm pretty careful, and I also have the powder checker, but I can't help but be paranoid.

Again, it is a dillon die that has the spring loaded decap pin. It is screwed all the way down. There is no way its not pushing the primer all the way out while sizing.

Thanks for the replies! I'll change the pin and load another 100 tonight and see what happens.
I will never:
call a shotgun a shottie, call a revolver a wheelgun, call wal-mart wally world, post simply "+1", accuse anyone of kool-aid drinking, use "m4gery", tell you that your gun/ammo is unsafe/junk and instruct you to send it to me immediately, change your words and say I 'fixed it for ya', tell you to move to a gun friendly state, or bust on you for using clip instead of mag.
