Re: Tight Chamber

Is the tool mark in the die or the guns chamber ?
Now try a tight unsized and polished case in the guns chamber and see where it is tight in the chamber . Compare that to the cases run through the dies.
Might give you an idea of where it is sticking in the chamber and if the dies are missing that spot.

Re: Tight Chamber

Yes the tool mark is in the chamber because it appears on the case using either die.The case run through the older die showed rings from the chamber on the shoulder.Shined up the case again,then the same case was run through the newly acquired die,those rings on the shoulder disappeared,but the tool mark was still there.
