I turned, because they were quite a bit thicker, than the cases, I have been forming. Hopping to get consistent neck tension.

I had a Forster neck turner already set up, for the LC formed brass.

So I turned about a hundred.

My rifles are factory Remingtons.

Thanks! I was just wondering if I would have neck clearance issues without turning them. I probably need to get set up to neck turn .17's.

I used a SAAMI spec 17FB reamer and Lapua 221 doesn't need neck trimming.
