oh, you mean "Innovative"
if innovative means copying an idea that's been around since the about 1860 when cartridges were invented, I guess that would be innovative
i.e. copying and patenting something already invented ?
who "innovated" it first, Lyman, or ??
Don't get suckered in by these new "patented" die sets, they are just re-inventing the wheel and peddling wares to reloaders who are unaware, that stuff has been around for belted cartridges since the 300 H&H was invented in the 1920's
what causes a belted magnum shell not to chamber, is the shoulder becomes work hardened and can't be bumped back enough, and the shell starts to headspace on the shoulder, and the bolt can't be closed, the shoulder it too high up on the cartridge, just like a 30-06 or any other that headspaces on the shoulder.
the fix for that is, anneal the case necks with a plumbers torch in a shallow pan of water, then knock them over into the water to quench them
and/or- bump the shoulder back with a piece of cast iron plumbers pipe. I routinely get 300 Weatherby mag brass to chamber again, by bumping the shoulder back with a piece of 3/8" pipe on an air fitting from my shop air system, that was laying around in my tool box.
should I patent this piece of pipe with the air fitting on it now, and charge $150 for it ?
