Sorry, that would probably be my fault, but at least we did get some good information out.
I also did some research on doughnut formation, I have never experienced it, but now I know a little more about it.

Re: Redding neck sizing problem?

Would someone please expand on the fact that the spring loaded ejector sitting to one side of the the case head at the base, pushes the case forward and to one side.

A properly head spaced case is not sitting in the chamber free to float around. At least with most REM and Savage bolts that have spring loaded ejectors.

I do have a Savage that has a standing ejector above the trigger and as such does not have a spring loaded ejector in on the bolt head pushing the case forward. I think this is a special case though as most bolts have spring loaded ejectors.

Please describe the effect the spring loaded ejector has on the alignment of the case in the chamber.
