until Godfrey Reloading's Al Thornton advised me to get a small based sizer die. Also, the military uses a crimped case mouth, sealant on primer and case mouth and cannelured bullet on their ammo for a REASON.

I had the same problem with .30-06 originally. My Remington M700 in .30-06 ate anything that I reloaded for it with standard dies, with the Garand I had to buy a set of small base dies to load for it.

got to do so in autoloaders. Especially if you pick up or buy random GI brass. Fired in some of those old worn out belt-feds, the case web is stretched WAY beyond what a normal sizer die will correct.

I have found case stretching to be exceptionally bad on the .303. When full length resizing to reloading .303 brass 4-5 times, you better take a broken case extractor to the range when you shoot the gun. With .30-06 I have had 20 plus reloads out of the brass.
