Look for a small body die from Redding. If they make it, that will fix your web size issue.

Before you spend alot of money, the first step is to polish your chamber. I have a Tubb T2K and shoot 6xc at XTC and Long range Highpower competitions. I had some issues with the Norma brass and sticky bolt lift in 6xc with the same powder charge that everone else was using(a time proven charge weight primer and bullet combo....so David Tubb told me to send him the barrel and he polished the chamber up and that was it, quick fix and really my first step if Im having issues with known good charge weights and standard reloading . any rough reamer marks(even though you may not feel or see them) in the chamber can cause this. Try that first and see if it helps.

Small base dies need to be used with caution as they really work the brass and are designed primarily for semi autos for proper feeding . You really need to take measurments and know exactly what your web expansion is before and after shooting and see if your working the brass too much.

Good luck
