    What is the best way to prevent rounding off my Speer/Hornady 22 cal bullets when pressing them into the case mouth?

    Sounds like you need a different seating stem

    Don’t get me wrong they are flying just fine@ 300 yards iron sights…just not as eye catching as factory bought

    You could try filling the seating stem with hot glue and make a custom profile.

    As said already, get a top punch that more closely matches the bullet profile you’re using. You want to be seating by pressing around the ogive, not pressing the very tip of the bullet. If you are contacting the tip with your seating stem/top punch, you will deform most soft point bullets; not so much an issue with FMJs.
