I am back with another question. I had a "bolt sticking" problem thread that I received great information on.
I am still in need of an answer to one of the things I thought
was causing that problem of the sticking bolt after firing . Since being "guided" to the true solution to the problem
, THIS problem will more than likely only be an issue of consistent accuracy.
I shoot fire-formed cases and only use a de-prime/neck-sizer die. I do all the other case prep "by the book". When I get to bullet seating, I find some new bullets can be slightly started into the case neck with little resistance, while others will barely fit or may be balanced slightly on the case neck. (no boat tail).
I have used a nylon rifle cleaning brush, twisted in the neck to clean better, I have used the deburring tool after any case trimming procedures. I do have sorted case brands, but this will happen about 50% of the same brand, and at that same rate to the other brands too. (Winchester & Remington).
I used my new digital calipers,
, and measured the case necks and the OD is consistent with the specs. The ID is about .001 - .0015 smaller on the tight fit cases.
Do I need a die with a neck-expander ball?
I can't seem to find a die listed like this ....or is this part of a "full length" sizing die?
I this "brass-flow" related?
AND will the inconsistent grip
on the bullet cause
I am not a true "benchrest shooter", but enjoy shooting from a bench trying for the tightest groups possible. A wanna-be!!
Thanks in advance,
