Full Length Sizing Die Vent Hole

Q. I purchased a Forster 300 AAC Blackout Full Length Sizing die to use in my Forster Co-Ax press. After adjusting the die to contact the shellholder, I observed that the vent hole in the die is covered by the lock ring. Is this a problem?

A. This should not cause a problem. The lock ring should still allow enough pressure to escape for proper functioning of the die.
