I want to load some FTX bullets for my 30-30 and was wondering if the stock seater plug in the Lee Dies will work ok with the FTX bullets?

I helped a friend load some with his standard Lee dies, worked fine. The plug did not harm the little gummy tip.
I have had zero issues with my Lee dies and Hornady FTX 160 gr. Back the seating die off and ease it in to the proper COL like you would any other bullet and you have no problem at all.
JR1968, I reload FTX bullets in 30-30 and 35Rem with Lee dies. There are no issues or problems.
