I am having a problem getting my reloaded brass to chamber in my Remington 700 257 Wea. I am doing as described and turning my die a half turn past where it meets the shell holder to bump the shoulders back enough but the bolt still won't close without allot of force. I tried turning a half turn down and chambering until I got almost 6 full turns past where the instructions say should work and it still won't. I colored a reloaded case and chambered it and it is putting a mark on the case starting at the shoulder and scratching down the side of the case half way down. I thought about getting a collet die for belted cases with a bulge(http://www.larrywillis.com) but their is no marks above the belt when I chamber. Any thoughts??? I even took the die back and exchanged it but still won't chamber smoothly as factory ammo.
