The load was 68 gr Magpro w/ 160 gr Accubond. That's straight from the Nosler manual, and it's not a maximum charge.

What I don't get is that everything I did on that day exhibited the same chambering problems, and I cannot recreate it. I'm holding a bad round, a round I just reloaded using the same brass/bullet, and a factory round, and only the bad one is tight to chamber. I've gone over them with a micrometer, and all three are dimensionally identical to within 0.002".

Can you slip a bullet into a fired nickel case?
Yes, that can be done easily.

Verify that the cases are trimmed to min-length spec
They are in spec, at 2.093".

The shell holder should be set to contact the sizing die when sizing.
I'm doing that.
The test of character is not 'hanging in' when you expect light at the end of the tunnel, but performance of duty, and persistence of example when you know no light is coming.
