Who does it? I think I am going to have to start turning case necks on my 300 Wsm. I have tried different bullets at diff oal and most are sticky in the chamber. I prep my case throughly too! I chamfer and debur trim.....never had to trim case necks though. Any suggestions?

It is just more difficult to close the bolt than what I am used to with factory ammo.

Sounds like if its hard to close the bolt you may be jambing the bullets into the lands. If its hard to lift the bolt after firing there could be too much pressure (i.e. hot load).

What JRE said. You may need to seat them a bit farther.

All the above, plus make sure you cases are the right length, they do sometime grow. I have to trim my 22-250 cases some, after being shot.

Back off the shoulder a touch, or try neck sizing your all ready fired brass.

You are below OAL and you have to crank the bolt closed? The suggestion is your sizing die is not set correctly, that is what earlier posts are saying. You have measured you brass oal and it is within the SAMMI specs, right? If so, then on to next step.

Drop am empty case you are ready to reload into the chamber and close the bolt. Crank over hard, same as before? Die set wrong. Remove the die, reinstall according to instructions, and size the case that wouldn't fit easily. re-try the empty case for fit. Still doesn't work? If you have one, take a once-fired factory round and without sizing, try the test.

Every time you change the FL die you should be following some sort of test to insure the die is set correctly.
