Let me preface my question by saying that us seasoned handloaders all know, if we've been salted, that when we load some rounds, the bullet is looser in the case neck than later. After some time? Having discovered this when we have occasion to pull a bullet from an Older loaded round.
It seems that the bullet can become VERY tight, and very difficult to pull.
I was advised to seat the bullet a bit deeper to overcome this problem, because the bullet is then broken loose and easier to pull.
That's all fine and dandy, BUT say you load a few rounds and take them to the range shortly after, How long I can't say, and you shoot them, sight in your rifle, because you like the load.
Now, the question. Since there is, or at least, Can Be, a quite noticeable difference in Neck Tension of Fresh Loaded Rounds versus Older loaded rounds,,,,,,
Has anyone noticed a difference in the shooting of same. (I note that Neck Tension is given an important place for handloads used in competition. )
Thanks, I'm just curious about this. I've seen nothing on it so far.
