    How do I stop and/or fix this? Not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or if this is normal for lead bullets.

    Bell your case mouth a little more and do your best to align the bullet as you can

    I used the "round nose" seater.

    I try to make sure to keep the bullet straight all the way up til it enters the die. I'll make sure to bell the case mouth a little more before I load again.

    AHHH, I thought that originally, but it felt like it was too big, the round nose seemed to "cup" the bullet.

    You can use a little liquid steam on them too.
