Hmmmm, I do no case prep with either brand of case. Performance with both brands has been very close to the same. The performance is very good to outstanding accuracy/consistency wise.
Loosening a primer pocket so much after a single firing with the Noslers at the same pressures as the Remmies frosts me a bit.
I have found no case dimensional change whatever other than the increased size of the primer pocket. This frosts me also as there is a simple way, if the head expands proportionately, to bring things back into spec.
There is a 1K bench shooter that "squeezes" the heads on his 300 Win after every shot and was at 20 shots per case last season.
I'm going to recheck my measurements, as I got a much improved digital caliper, and see if there is any future in resizing. However, if I remember correctly I used a decent micrometer to make the original measurements.
The die is simple to make if there were any use for it. Maybe I should consider going to a belted case.
