The neck tension the case has before bullet seating gives the inside diameter of the case an approximate 0.002 inch interference fit to the bullet (by design). Without the carbon residue the bullet might seat hard, collapsing the case wall.
If you just have to use this cleaning method then use an inside the case neck lubricant. NECO offers a graphite you apply by dipping only the neck into a bottle of small metal balls and powdered graphite. There may be other methods too (??).
thanks for the advise LD!
question though..would not new cases you buy have the same problem? just wondering as this is first time anyone has given that advise...am looking into the graphite from NECO though...brass is getting too expensive to waste!
As I get Older, I have come to understand why our Founding Fathers chose our countrys motto to be "IN GOD WE TRUST", somehow they knew in the future WE would come to the point that WE COULD NO LONGER TRUST THE ONES WHO RUN IT!
