How do you know you resized them properly?
Do you have and use headspace gages like the Stoney Points so you can measure a fired case and set you sizing die accordingly?
Do you have the proper gage to measure your chamber OAL?
How did you determine that the Amax is not yet touching the lands?
Unless you have a bad set of dies you should be able, with the proper measuring tools, to determine your critical chamber dimensions and set your dies accordingly. You should also be able to very accurately measure the distance to the lands and also be able to accurately set you seating die to the proper setting.
Do you have any problems with factory ammo chambering in your gun?
Just some things to consider and some questions that might help a little.;)
