Mr. Wynne, I enjoyed your discourse on precision reloading. I am a firm believer in consistency, and doing what works for you.

My madness routine includes annealing fired cases first step. Full length sizing for .0015-.002 shoulder set back and neck reduced by .002 bushing smaller than fired diameter. Wet tumble with stainless media for one hour; never more two hours. Inside and outside neck chamfer (paranoid about case mouth preening in the tumbler causing pressure problems). Run case necks over Sinclair neck size expander mandrel.

Prime, powder, coat seated portion of bullet with Imperial Die wax and seat bullet.

I also trim to length and skim turn case necks after two fire forms.
