Sizing/headspacing

I have recently gotten into handloading, both for the cost and the accuracy aspects. I'm having trouble with the sizing and spacing on my loads. I'm trying to reload once-fired .308 brass, and have discovered that the bolt won't close compeltely on some of my cartridges; with it, I see brass rubbing off on the bottom of the bolt, as if the bolt is scraping across the rounds in the internal magazine (Remington 700).

I checked OAL when I ran the batch, and that's not the problem; instead, I have discovered that diameter of the case just below the shoulder is 0.003 too big; this is consistent across most of my cases.

Is this an issue that can be fixed by adjusting my dies (RCBS dies/press), or do I have a bigger problem?

TIA,
Omni
