Hi Bob:

You are added to the list.

I have PM'd Chknlyps2 who was instructing you to see if he has any ideas about your questions.

Personally, to me, it sounds as if your die set may have a problem, but there are a lot of variables at work here. The easy fix would be to borrow a resizing die from someone and just try it and see what happens. That would confirm or eliminate your Redding die as the issue. Generally Redding gear is top notch but it is also possible that you have a die with a burr somewhere inside of it, it happens to the best of brands. Generally, I don't hear about case bulge causing a gouge as you describe. Can you post a picture of the gouge? That would help the instructors figure it out. We'll figure out the problem, but pictures really help to diagnose.
