Your "top of the belt" is above the flash hole and web, which is where I think the support might be ending if the case moves back towards the bolt face. Have you "asked around" if this is happening to anyone else? The manufacturers I've talked to say they haven't heard of anything like this, though I strongly suspect liability concerns might prevent them from saying anything even if they had.

Also P Flados made a good suggestion--did you measure the case depth to head in a before and after case comparison? I've noticed some slight compression in the depth of the head section--though it's hard for my calipers to discern between flattening of the headstamp and actual flattening of the head.
