I do just about everthing a person can do to a pice of brass except neck turn. Just wanted some input and advise before i invest that much money in guages and turners. Is it worth the effort?

I have been reloading for hunting purposes for around a decade and have never had a need to neck turn. I load for around a dozen calibers.

I`d not go to the trouble to turn cases for a factory chamber. I would instead buy a tubing micrometer and just sort cases and use the ones that are the most uniform.
I have segregated cases to .0005" and is just about as good as turning. Not near the trouble.

I`d not buy the Norma due to the softness of their brass. The primer pocket tension goes away very fast. I`d get Remington or Winchester along with a quality tubing mike. I have a Mititoyo, and it is a good one.
