I'm simply suffering from OCD and can't stand the superficial burrs  ::)
Suffering? Enjoy it instead!

Haha I guess you're right. If I'm OCD-like, then I should be better at catching my mess ups.

LOL, OCD doesn't properly kick in until you start loading for rifles.  Get yourself a .223.

 One of the other posters may have hit on something, no pun intended. The extractor shows a lot of brass marking on it. My guess would be too high slide velocity. Too light recoil spring?

I just tested one of my BRY 124 HBRN-TP bullets seating it in a sized case.  Mine read .378 when I was right on the R&P case mouth.
Adding .0005"-.001" for the taper crimp is adding half or a full dia. of a human hair to the TP. ;D

PS  My R&P brass measured about the same: some checks .011 some .0115  My digital caliper is the Harbour Freight special. ::)

Thanks for sharing your specs with me. I'd like to think my Mitutoyo calipers are accurate. Oh, the joys of reloading  ::)

Haha, someday I wanna get into long guns and reloading, but my CZ455 will have to do for now

Yea, someone did question which spring I was using (currently using 13 lb spring) . But, on my last trip out, I forgot the spring. I will definitely follow up with the stock spring on my next outing.
