Forster neck turner question?

Any ideas, why it cuts on the neck on one side and on the shoulders on the other??

Perhaps the brass is unevenly distributed?

i.e. thicker on one side than the other

good point, chamber is bad, you can see chamber print right on the neck, every brass I turn has same signature... So you think there is no problem with neck turner?

Re: Forster neck turner question?

It's common for brass to be thicker on one side. Hence, the need for neck turning to obtain even thickness/tension. Others turn necks to maintain tight tolerances in custom chambers.

With a non-concentric chamber, all bets are off. You can try marking/indexing your brass and chambering it the same way every time. But, the solution is a new barrel.

Removing/reducing that neck thickness variation is the primary point of turning.

thing is, they were turned to remove that variation, after firing it once after I decide to do little experiment with them, so I turned them again to see how my chamber effect it, the results are not very good as you can see... Now I'm planning to get new barrel for my rifle.

Do you really think the barrel is causeing your necks to develop thin:thick sections?
