Now that I've posted my "original" "ingenious" solution, I come to find out it's a known problem throughout Hornady users, I'm just the last to figure it out.  Seem like, pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters are the common solution.    I didn't want to raise the "dead bottom" too much as it might interfere with the prawls not getting a full down stroke, but evidently there's quite a lot of room between full progression and the bottom.

At least some people thought my solution was better than throwing money at it.

longevity... my poor RCBS Rock Chucker sits alone in the garage in its mid 30s... the Dillon S1050 gets to sit in the air conditioned house, and just had its 21st birthday... CCI now supplies most of my ammunition... Les

Les, Federal and S&B have provided most of mine during the season of Wuhan.  Starting to reload a little more this fall. Hopefully Federal primers will be available by year end.

My original 52yo Herters C press is still going strong at a fellow shooters house.
