    Minerat replied to a thread Sizing woes in Casting Equipment
    Usually need to fill the lower row of holes and/or adjust the depth the boolit is pushed into the die. I set mine a little high (above the bottom holes) to just lube the lower lube groves and not the crimp groove but still size the top band.

    I had some old lazer cast with the hard blue lube that had missing spots, it did not seem to make any difference when shooting them if at least 75% or so remained. I then started tumble lubing them with Bens liquid lube mixture just in case. You...

    Have you tried opening the PC in administrative mode and deleting her as a user. Sometimes there is no administrations pass word unless it was setup originally. I don't know much just enough to be dangerous but it was a thought.

    I don't know if this will help but I found this target that explains what happens if your are shooting around the target and a possible cause. I'm not sure where is came from, or even to whom to give the credit for it so for what it's worth.
