Re: 243AI case splitting problem when fire forming

Just got a reply from lapua. Sending samples to them and will post the results. I also have checked closely the differences of pre-rechambering cases and post. The new chamber is definately tighter and the cases which do not have holes look perfect. My feeling is the cases are flawed. Fortunately I was getting close to needing to rechamber anyway. I just don't want to do it again. All of the cartridges I fireformed previous to these boxes were perfect every time and have been reloaded several times each. I am getting crush on the taper now and am pitching them. Thus the need to form some more. Thanks for all of the responses. I have always had an immediate answer to any question I have had and I really do appreciate it! Thanks guys! ps. How do you post a pic on here? I have a good pic of one of the cases.
