Re: This looks very wrong to me

My Sizing die is putting .004 neck tension on my brass good, bad, or ugly? My 300 mag only has .002 neck tension and it loads like butter.

If these die's turn out to be gimped ill return them or call the manufacturer.

Def not liking what im seeing atm though it doesnt seem right.

It can't put that much pressure on the bullet without resistance from the neck of the case.
Too much neck tension will do that!
