For what it's worth, I spent the money on Nosler custom brass and have taken the time to inspect each one. weight, length, neck thickness... and I will never shoot anything else. It's kind of a rule of thumb that any variation you find in the thickness of the neck is going to be present within the body of the case as well. And although you can turn the necks you obviously cannot fix brass thickness variations in the body.
I have just had bad luck with Winchester brass having horrible variations in neck thickness. my Winchester WSM brass had variations up to .005", which is just horrible. the largest variation I found in any of the Nosler brass was .001, and after the first firing the majority of the brass fell within .0005. I have reached a point with the Nosler brass that I am now wasting time if I try and measure anything. It is just extremely uniform and consistent... (I believe the majority of Nosler brass is made by Norma, but they do take the time to sort the brass by weight which is one step beyond what Norma does)
Anyways, See how your win brass shoots and if you are having trouble then checking your neck thickness might be a good place to start. But I"m guessing with your custom build it's going to shoot just about anything really really well.
