I decided to try some loads with fire formed brass. After depriming, neck resizing and cleaning I chambered each piece only to find that half of them seated so snug that they needed to be pushed out with a rod.
Am I not setting the neck sizing die correctly, or is this common with fire formed brass?

I must assume they were fired in only one rifle, so:

1) Did you try them in your chamber before resizing?
2) If so, did any of them stick like you describe?
3) What caliber?
4) What resizing die?
5) Did you lube/clean inside of neck before sizing?

Inquiring minds want to know....:wink:

ETA: They should come out with extractor.

papajoe,
Sounds like who's brass was it !! fireformed in who's gun. Olyeller hit a few points with his post. Can only go so long with neck sizing before one has to set the shoulder back a hair or use a body die. What caliber/round are you sizing ?? Make of brass ? times loaded / resized ?

I neck sized a .308 case 20 times and never set the shoulder back.
It was stiff to chamber at #5 firing.. but did not get any stiffer after that.
Savage .308 10FP. Lapua case.
Then it got mixed in with once fired cases..Not on purpose.

If it was an issue with the shoulders they wouldn't be sticking in the chamber, thus needing to be tapped out from the muzzle. When shoulders need bumping you'll either feel a lot of resistance when closing the bolt, or won't close at all. But the cartridge doesn't stick in the chamber, that would be something else causing that.

I would start by coloring a cartridge with magic marker, chamber it and see where the marker is rubbing off. It's either some where on the body or around the neck. If that is a min. SAAMI spec. chamber then it may have some tight spots. Neck turning may be in your future.

It could also be the brass itself ? as mentioned in my previous post. Neck turning would be my last resort especially if its a shelf gun.
