Well, this is my second time around loading for the 300 Winmag. First time was almost 20 yrs ago for a hunting rifle, this time for a custom LR/Tac.
I started to have the same problems with the action closing after the brass was resized a few times. I measured everything, no clues.
I finally noticed some of the cases that caused the problems had a ring just above the belt that looked like a head separation sign, only it wasn't. Seems the FL RCBS sizer made the ring. Kind of pushed the brass down to just above the belt!

Pitched the brass and started over with a Lee Collet die. So far so good.

Sometimes the fix doesn't have to cost alot of $
