I better understand your question now. If the concentricity is off the bullet could be contacting the side of the gage where the bullet passes through. So I need another tool to check. The tool collection continues to grow. This seems to make a lot of sense as when I seated the bullet deeper most of the issue with the gage disappeared. Thanks again.Check the Concentricity of the loaded round. With VLD long bullets the Ogive may be touching the the case gauge wall preventing it from gravity seating.
It means the neck of the gun and the thickness of the case neck are not compatible. The neck of the case should expand enough to release the bullet and still be large enough after firing that the bullet slides in and out easily before the neck is resized. U see these tight necks on bench rest guns so you can reload without sizing the neck back down but they are a bad idea on a hunting gun or any rig where the brass is not turned to exactly the same thickness for all cases. You can end up with really excess pressure if the neck is too tight.For give me if I missed it. And not to hijack the thread. If the fired case doesn’t let a bullet pass easily what does that mean or how do you correct it?
The reason why I ask is I have a factory 7rm that the bullet has some resistance in fired brass vs a custom .284 the bullets slides easily without friction.
Thanks and I assume I should turn necks for this rifle to increase accuracy. Rifle is a win mod 70 classic super grade. Tried rem wind and fed brass. All same some resistance.
