No turn neck vs. turn neck

Are there any advantages or disadvantages either way when having a barrel chambered for a turn or no turn neck?

To turn or not to turn; that is the question...

Re: No turn neck vs. turn neck

A no turn would allow you to shoot factory ammo if you wanted or had to.

I.E.
If your ammo was lost on the airline, factory ammo could be substituted.


A turn neck allows for less neck clearance which can be determined by you when turning the necks to a pre determined wall thickness.

For a turned neck I like .002" - .003" clearance per side of a loaded round. A no turn neck would have in the neighborhood of .004" - .006" clearance per side.

I would still skin turn your necks if you went with a no turn neck chamber just enough to clean up 80%. This will help in uniformity of neck diameter.
