Alright here it is. I made 4 small shims out of some aluminum I had measuring .15 inches. I stuck them under my lock n load socket and I used a bullet seating die to seat a bullet in each press without changing the die and got them within .002 of each other. One COAL ended up at 2.25 and the other at 2.248. Close enough in my book.

Nice, I use shim sets to adj between different guns.

For those who do not have a lathe. I found complete shim set on Amazon for $7several months ago, looks like there up to $10 now http://www.amazon.com/Steel-Arbor-Assortment-1008-1010-Chemistry/dp/B002BXRDKY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1323494786&sr=8-2
