Other than suffering with consistant sub 1/2" moa groups from production rifles and almost seemingly perpetual brass life, what kind of issues may we encounter in the can of worms?
I have found to keep consistant neck tension I have to anneal the necks after about 5 firings. The Lee die also stops case lengthening and associated trimming I guessing because the brass is not worked very much. Maybe we are leaving some performance on the table? My 300Wby only runs 200 grain Accubonds at 3130 and the 300RUM at 3200. I am strictly only using the Lee Collets on 22-250, 25-06AI, 257Wby, 7mm RM, 300Wby, 300RUM. Not having to trim or use lube sure speeds up a loading session.
I will also admit that after 5 firings or so you can surely feel some drag when closing the bolt but I keep my lugs clean and greased and in 15 years of use it has never been an issue. Even when I used to use regular dies I alway used them in a neck size mode only. My dad used to insist on at least bumping the shoulders enough so we could interchange ammo in the field. He gave up on that when I had a full head separation in my 7 Mag. My Ruger 77 chamber is a little looser than his Sako Finnbear is.
Some kids want to be a fireman or a doctor to help people. I wanted to be a gunsmith.
