Okay, so long story short. Ive been chasing Low ES numbers for quite some time now. We know that neck tension plays a large role in ES/SD numbers. For those of you who use a lee collet die, have you neck turned and seen a difference? I shoot a 6 Comp Match w/ H-1000 and 105 Nosler RDF's. I'm typically against neck turning, though I found tonight that with lapua brass turned enough to be consistent (my neck thickness turned out to be .014). I noticed a large difference in my seating force when seating a round (seating pressure more consistent), and also seating depth was more consistent. All within +/- .00125 (.0025 total difference). Ill be testing this set up on Sunday, though i wanted to see if others noticed. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
