Yep, thought of that. It might work for a firing or two. I have not tried it yet, so it might not work at all. But I have gotten into the habit of using a Redding S type die to bump the shoulder back .001" and neck size at the same time. Paired with Redding's Precision Shell Holder set gives you a lot of control over bump and neck tension.Neck size the cases. But in autoloader that might not work. Bolt rifle no problem .
I did try the Type S on these cases with the +.010 shell holder. That was the die that the soft Hornady brass would go through, with excessive force. The Lapua and Federal brass would not.
I do this for my bolt gun hunting loads and for PRS competition. I don't want a sticky bolt in either situation.
The Forster Bushing Bump Neck dies have worked well (normal chambers) for me as well.
