Does this sound right?

It is not as tight of a tolerance as one would think or hope for, it's probably around a +/- .0015" range. Having said that, if you take the large rifle B diameter of the 6 on chart, it'll yield ...
Most of my brass are Winchester and I get at least 5-6 firings without experiencing loose primers problem and regardless of primers used. I have all the primers on the chart but I prefer the CCIs (200, BR2, 250) for most of my LR loads.
