Should I in the future trim my necks to 0.346" - 0.344"? When I neck size previously fired brass neck diameter of those with the bullet seated is 0.334" so it looks like +0.012" difference between them.
Thanks for any suggestion…
You have .012" neck clearance around your loaded round. That is larger than usual.
You have brass neck thickness of .013" which is normal but a little on the low side.
You do not need to neck turn but might want to in order to make your neck thickness more consistant for better bullet release and runout.
