My brass averages .012", I don't neck turn, my chamber isn't tight enough to bother.
I actually find my brass is pretty consistent across Rem and Nosler brass. I must admit I don't check it often other than when I'm working out what size bushing to use when it's new.
I realise this may cause inconsistent neck tension, but I doubt it would effect groups by throwing in a flier, it may be a rifle issue, such as a walking barrel due to inconsistent heat treating, this is common in factory barrels.
