Re: I\'m stumped!

Hey guys, I posted a week ago about my sizing die. I wasn't getting enough shoulder bump from my redding body die. The caliber is 308. I must be doing something wrong, I have the wilson drop in headspace gauge. I put the bottom of the caliper on the neck end of the gauge and the other end of the caliper on the head of the shell. My measurement after two firings is 2.008. When I run the shell as far into the die as it will go, I get the same headspace measurement afterwards and when I try to chamber the shell the bolt is very hard to close. I thought of having some of the die shaved off but instead I replaced it, getting the same result. Could my chamber be short, or what am I doing wrong? It's just a factory rem vsf Thanks in advance
