    I've shot about 900 rounds through my 7mm WSM. The reloads that I shoot chamber well, and give satisfactory (.5 and less @ 100 yds) results. I've always just resized the neck and as stated never had chambering problems. I measure each shell after they are loaded and the neck dimension is pretty consistent at .315

    Would neck turning improve on what I am shooting already. I read that even a slight turning inside and out would improve the center line relating to case, bullet and bore alignment.

    What are your thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    I shoot tight neck 22BR and neck turning definately plays an important role in accuracy in this rifle, need all of the brass to be the same or as much as possible.
    If brass is too thick you can tell when you bolt the cartridge, always mic the neck to see where you are.Good consistent neck pressure will yield good tight groups.
