    I'm intrigued by these neck splitting comments @Gibo. Is it common?
    I had some new brass which the odd one was split in the packet, but haven't had issues with any others.

    But common for 17 HMR.

    How much experience have you had with a WSSM?

    Mate had one. We fucked around for ages but it split them regardless. No point loading them to 223 speeds just to avoid a split neck
