Re: Reloading helpPlease

Just to be clear:

You are full length resizing fired brass for/from the same rifle?

And the case will not even go in at the neck shoulder's?

O.K. Will the fired case that won't go into the resizing die chamber into the rifle you fired it from?

Try resizing with a different die. If no problems there, then you might take check the first die for problems. Check your trim length and measure the ODs of the shot cases vs. the cases that had fit with no problems. Interesting problem....Keep us posted.

Measure everything before and after firing.

NO..It will not close, as it has to be beaten out with a rubber hammer after firing...strange is right..a new sized case goes in nicely like it should.or once fired factory from another gun resized.. cycles and closes well .after the shot.PROBLEM...I told my buddy its time to invest in a new rifle..this gun has been rebarrelled prior..prob only 300 rounds thru it....

Re: Reloading helpPlease

He needs to quit shooting the rifle until he figures this out.

If the bolt binds with factory ammo, then something is wrong with the chamber/bolt/headspace.

It shouldn't be that hard to measure every aspect of the fired and unfired case to see where the brass is growing/binding.

Digital calipers are inexpensive as is a set of sinclair or hornady headspace inserts. SAMMI prints are available online.

Check the headspace like others suggested. You can rent a set of go/no-go gauges from reamerrentals.com. Remember to remove your ejector so you get a better feel.

You can even do a chamber cast if necessary.

If you're still not sure, take it to a smith (possibly the one that did the last rebarrel) to check it out.
