Bingo! This here ^^^^ was the only way I was able to get consistent neck tension. Neck turning to just where the cutter barely touches the shoulder. Make sure you use the corresponding degree angle cutter as your shoulder.I have pretty well conquered neck tension by turning necks, annealing every firing and setting necks with a mandrel, but there are always a few cases that go into the fouling box for unknown reasons.
Ive been down this rabbit hole and then some and it’s still not perfect. Donuts can be your nightmare for precision shooting. Some seat their bullets’ base just to that spot on purpose and have their barrel throated for a certain bullet.
