You may be over sizing . After firing size just enough to be able to chamber. And then check
the growth of one of these rounds after fireing. If it still grows that much you may have to back
off on the powder charge.
If a round is sized properly and fired in a good chamber it should not grow very much unless
it is a hot load and then the chamber can grow enough that the brass will expand and
spring back will after firing and ejecting will be larger than the chamber.(This is the case when
you have heavy bolt lift.
