    Hard to say from cyberspace. Repeat the sizing process and try to chamber an empty case. If that goes well, it's somewhere down the loading chain.~Muir

    as it was only "some" of the fireformed and resized cases it would have to be some inconsistency in the process or the brass. more likely the former

    what dies?
    expander ball or collet?
    lubed?
    as above, chamfered?
    flat bottom bullets?

    examine the necks, you will be able to see any slight deformation,
