Neck tension w/edge dies

Alright guys hope yall can help me with this problem. When I resize my brass with edge dies I was told to do it without the expander ball in it except when sizing up from 300 ultra. When I do this what would cause the neck tension to be fine on some and tight on others. I would say 1 out of every 5 will be quite a bit tighter than the rest.

Thanks
Nathan

The thickness of your necks are not all the same. Some are thinner, less tension, others are thicker, more tension.

Is there a way to fix this with out turning the inside of the necks.

Thanks

Just turn the necks all to the same thickness.

I just ordered a forester .338 neck reamer maybe that will do the trick. Do you think that this will fit into the pilot hole in my rcbs case trimmer. If not I guess I can buy a forester neck trimmer.

Thanks trueblue and everyone else for there info.

Nathan,
I have not used the Forester reamer, so I can't help you on that. I have been using the Sinclair neck turning tools. I think you will find when you are done that it will help your uneven neck tension when seating your bullets.
