And here is the response I got back.
Thank you for sending that over! That answered what I had originally suspected. We have expanded a proprietary cartridge case manufacturing process that produces a stronger and more consistent product by utilizing a new tooling design. Many major manufacturers are beginning to introduce a similar process. This will mean more consistent internal volume, a harder case head, as well as extended overall brass life. This method has been tested and confirmed that it does not affect headspace, function, or performance. With this process we have begun creating the best cartridge cases we have ever made. As long as that rifle you are having made is all to SAAMI specs you should have no issues whatsoever with this ammunition. I personally have some of these new lots I've run through my 7mm PRC and had great results myself. You will start seeing this more and more in different cartridges as we grow this new manufacturing method. If you have any questions please let us know!
