    These looked like threaded holes that the retainer pins screwed into...I tried adjusting one with a small pair of pliers and the measurement changed so I made them both the exact same, measured off the face to the top of the pin. (I removed the...

    Screw those little post that hold the shell holder in farther...measure them at the same spacing off the face of the holder where the cartridge case sits or the case will cock from side to side with their uneven tension.
