    I've never tried a Lee REAL bullet in my Sharps, but I had problems with gluing a flat based Moose Sharps bullet to Charlie's white tubes. Instead of completely breaking away from the tube, sometimes a piece of the tube stayed glued to the bullet base causing extreme fliers. I use the Lee ringtail now.

    An extra step but I have heard of folks gluing on a piece of paper that covers both the bullet and cardboard tube.
