I still am of the opinion that the short head space was acting like your resizing die and bumped the shoulder too far back on the initial chambering and some cases had to be resized with the full length die becasue I have my neck tension set very low on my neck sizing die and keep a full length die with the decapping pin broke to do a emergency neck sizing when loading . I just dump the powder out anfd do a quick full length resize if the bullet seemed to be a bit too loose
these cases have not been re annealed. I bought 100 Hornady cases plus 2 boxes of loaded Hornady (for break in) when I built the gun and half are now on their 3rd & half on the 4th firing
