It seems to be a little tight when the bolt is closed with the fireformed brass. My question is what steps do you take after fireforming the brass. And if there are no pressure signs should I change any thing. I am using this gun for hunting so I do not want any loading issues in the field.
It is normal for the fire formed case to be a little tight because it has
no headspace and totaly fills the chamber.
If you want to avoid loading issues for hunting back off on your sizing
die just a little untill you get the desired fit.
If your neck sizing only it want help with the feeling of tightness.
