    One thing I might add is that the reamer has zero free bore with a 1.5 lead. I don't think that is the cause because I chambered 2 other barrels with that reamer and haven't had an issue from either...

    Al, then wouldn't I see a case mouth that was screwed up or shorter then the rest that were all trimmed to the same length? I looked at those last 15 cases and nothing seems out of place.
