We had reloaded ammo at the last class, and had to yank the ammo off the line due to all the malfunctions. Numerous. 5.56 is a finicky enough without adding the problems that come from reloading. If your crimp is too light, than the rounds will back out during recoil, or sink in the case. I don't know what set up you are using, but it looks like a Lee. Depending on the die you use, it could already be out of spec for the crimp.
If you are going to reload for the 5.56, spend the fucking cash on a Dillon and Dillon dies. There is a reason why competitive shooters use Dillon Presses. For my high volume rounds, I use the Dillon. I've never had a malfunction using my Dillon.
I just saw a 550B on Guns List for $450 with dies. If I had the extra money right now, I'd buy it and have two.
Get a good press and good dies. For single loading, the others are fine--RCBS, Lee, Hornady--for volume loading, Dillon is the shit.
