Different shell holders will play havoc with die adjustments. I kept having die adjustment problems until I realized I had two different 9 mm shell holders and wasn't using the same one each time. A different press will/might cause adjustments to be thrown off.

Drop a lead shot into the lock screw hole, when properly adjusted , lock it down. After that only use the ring to remove or install dies, don't grab the die body or put a wrench on the die body. A light tweak to tighten on the ring with a wrench is more than enough to keep dies in place. Lyman dies used to come with a tool.
Lee dies are another story, they have no set screw so be careful...read the instructions or replace those rings with locking rings.
