I had to modify the profile slightly so this top punch would not leave a ring in the 124gr lee round nose bullet. I took a round blade exacto knife blade and put this top punch in my lathe and used the exacto blade to ever so slightly round the inside top rim of the profile of this punch. The top punch was leaving a ring in the top of the bullet since it was not an exact fit. The profile was fine except for a small bit of interference at the bottom of the punch. It might have been enough to just shorten the punch by a couple of thousandths. Good luck!
