I haven't had it happen to me but it happens. Is it a new die ? If so you need to take it apart and clean it really well then look if there are any tool marks in the seater. You may want to ask this question over at longrangehunting . There are some unbelievably experienced loaders over there . What brand of die is it ?

Does this only happen with accubonds? If so, check to see if the taper of the bullet is fatter than the taper of the seating dies seating plug.
