Having trouble with 25-06 cases shaving slivers off of the bullet when I seat them.
Never seen this before and see no way to adjust the die to eliminate this. Is this just a bad die?

This might be moot but, have you chamfered the case necks? This needs to be done with once fired cases as well as new. Just enough to put a slight bevel on the inside/outside circumferance of the neck.

If your expander ball was undersized chances are you would be crumpling case necks rather than shaving bullets when you went to seat them.

Thanks Contender, yes I have chamfered the necks. I'll put a little more bevel on and see if that's the problem.

scout 1, I too have noticed this with .25-'06 loads. I too also chamfer the inside of the case mouth. I have no good explanation except that I have not noticed any degradation in accuracy. My answer to why this happens---just because !!!!!!!
