Ok i reloaded some once fired norma 270wsm brass. About half of the rounds would not allow the the bolt to close. Some would close, but they were real sticky. And some loaded with no problem. Any thoughts? thanks
Either your bullets are seated to long and are making contact with the rifling or the brass is too long. Also could be that they did not fully resize. Those are the only ideas I have. I tried to just bump the shoulder on some 7mag rounds and they did the same thing. Had to full legth resize them.
Was this brass fired in the same gun your trying to chamber the brass in? Generally speaking once fired brass must be full length sized in order to be used in a different rifle. I get many firings out of neck sized brass by doing nothing more than trimming a little when the brass gets too long.
Lee collet dies are some of the most affordable and have the least amount of runout (accuracy!) of any dies. You can have them custom made also if you send them some once fired brass (from your gun of course).
