Re: New problem, need expertise!
One thing I've neglected to mention as I was sorta curious to see if anyone else would comment is/was the plunger ejector that is standard on so many actions. It can be kinda the Achilles heal in all this. Especially with a stock coil spring. It's fun to watch cases ejaculate themselves from a loadng port till a guy starts thinking about how that offset plunger affects a chambered round. That spring loaded little bastage is doing everything it can to keep your case head away from the bolt face and if the chamber is loose enough; the cartridge will wind up cockeyed in the chamber. If I were fire forming I'd consider removing it and manually peeling the fired cases from the loading port until I built up my desired quantity of brass.
If you decide to leave it in, run your neck tension a wee smidge tighter to mitigate the bullet slipping in the case when you rotate the bolt into battery. Keep your loads on the conservative side for the initial "sneezing" and only size enough case to achieve reliable feeding, chambering, and extraction. Again I'd only use a Redding/Wilson die for this.
Hope this helps.
