    I'd put my money on the brass not being properly sized, and the shoulder is not set back correctly. Get a case gauge, don't reload without one.

    Oh yeah, like most of us found out a long time ago, size and check a few pieces of the brass before you load a lot of ammo. Saves a lot of aggravation.

    whelp guys we remesured everything everything checked so we marked one with a marker and seen it was hittin around the shoulder so we bought a new sizing die and re did one case put it in the chamber and it worked so i guess we got a bad die...how often does that happen
