    Ok so I have been reloading for about a year and have a lot to learn, but I'm running into some issues with nosler brass. It seems way soft in the primer pocket and its cutting the life of what should be a very long case life's brass short. Is there any process I can do to preemptively harden the primer pockets a bit, so they aren't so soft?
