I'll turn a test batch of necks to .014" thickness to check for accuracy improvement too.
Thanks for the replys
The wssm brass likes a LOT of neck tension. Plus factory chambers are big, so a bit of extra brass will just fill the neck better. If you feel the need to turn 'em, I'd just go to knock of the high spots, nothing more.
I knocked out the bit of goop in my recoil lug area on my Coyote too when I lightened the trigger. I went to simply metal on laminated wood bedding and smoothed the high spots and she's a 1/4" to 1/2" rifle. I don't do more than I have to on a rifle to make it shoot. I keep going 'till she does shoot, and hit the brakes at good enough.
