    would my using the deburring tool on the brass have anything to do with that?

    What type of sizing die are you using?
    Have you actually sized the cases?

    The chamfering tool has nothing to do with neck tension, it's only needed to give a slight bevel on the inside/outside of the case mouth on new brass and after trimming.

    More info on what you have/haven't done is needed to answer your question correctly.

    Cheers.
