Thank you for any input you may have.......
I subscribe to the KISS philosophy and on a belted case the best way I know to make the
brass last and minimise head space is to fire the round once and neck size only from then
on until they start getting hard to chamber.
Your brass fits the chamber perfect and doesn't have to be re sized until it gets hard to
chamber. Also head space is .0000 unless you size it and bump the shoulder. there is no
reason to work your brass each time you size as long as it will chamber.
Weatherbys have lots of free bore and this definitely improves there accuracy.
