Thank you , great service on your end . Only thing I can think of is the crimp die on set-up may have crimped a little too much .

, thank you for providing these additional details. We use large rifle primers that are produced within SAAMI specs which wouldn't fit a pocket measuring .202" in diameter. We are wondering if your pocket reamers isn't removing enough material. We have ordered a Hornady large pocket reamer for you that will ship at no charge when available. Please try this reamer to see if it resolves this issue for you. Thanks

I found two more of the cases , de-primed one , the primer was tight and measured .202 , the head stamp on these cases have Hornady in large print , seems they are crimped more than some of the .308 win. Hornady cases with the small letters , they mic'd .214
� � My large military crimp remover worked good on those cases , these seem to have more crimp than even some of the surplus military rounds I've done over the years .

, depending on how it is made, a pocket uniformer typically will only true up the face of the pocket (depth), without removing material from the pocket walls (diameter). Did the cases have spent primers in them that you had to remove? Thanks

Yes , the inside measured .202 the full length of the depth , � that is after running a RCBS military crimp remover twice .I've ordered a primer pocket uniformer , gonna try that ,oddest thing I ever ran into ,reloading over 40+ yrs. many thousand of rounds .pete

Mr. Ford, could you tell us what the primer pockets are measuring for an internal diameter and the method used to take these measurements? Thanks
