Mike the necks to see if they are consistent and no more than .014", preferably around .012" for consistent bullet pull and clean release. If the necks are incosistent in thickness, turn them to reduce the variation. Norma brass is generally very good, so I doubt you will have problems.

Once you have fired the cases, check how much the neck expands. If the neck expands very little, you might want to turn them to allow easier pullet release.
